Iano DeGrazia, along with his brother Marco DeGrazia export the wine to the United States, where it is distributed by Harmon Skurnik, along with his brother Michael of Michael Skurnik Wines. The wine then finds a home in reputable wine shops and restaurants like Stage Left and Catherine Lombardi. Mark and Francis discuss the whole shebang and process with Silvia, Iano and Michael.
