Charlie and Steph Dall’Omo, together with their Italian partner, Gabriele Bolgeri, have a great enthusiasm for sharing all the delights that Italy has to offer. This venture came about partly as the result of a long awaited Dall’Omo family reunion, 65 years on from their separation. It was hosted by Gabriele at Chiesa Di Ignano, at his wonderful B&B in the Apennines just south of Bologna. The food was wonderful, the wine flowed steadily and even though guests didn’t all speak the same language, there was so much love in the room. Gabriele and his wife Irene soon felt part of the family.
Through a mutual appreciation of the great food and wines of Italy and a love for sharing those with others, San Martino was born.
