Commited to Community

Dante’s dedication to the community and the environment motivated him to implement a million-dollar water treatment plant at the family’s new winery in Paso Robles. Being committed to expanding the company’s non-profit and charity presence, he’s currently participating in a program that provides clean water to needy people in third world countries (WinetoWater.org). He also serves on the board of the Han Schneider Children Foundation that helps provide food for children and orphans also in third world countries (www.hanschiederchildrens.org).

Interests

Personal Affinities

Starting from adolescence, Dante loved learning about the interests of people. That care for others is displayed in his desire to provide the best product or service to consumers regardless of socioeconomic background or cultural differences. He is on a steadfast mission to improving the world through his CPG or technology innovation and projects,

This Renaissance man speaks three languages (English, Italian, and Spanish), is an avid outdoor sportsman—on water or land—and will be participating in the Ironman Triathlon this winter. Since moving to beautiful Nashville, Tennessee, Dante somehow finds time for his other passions: riding his Indian motorcycle, riding in his Jeep with the top down in search of the next best coffee shop, reading marketing books, and—surprise—listening to country music.
