ZioBaffa Wines, Bella Vita Are Now Sponsors of Eat! Drink! Italy!

Home / News / ZioBaffa Wines, Bella Vita Are Now Sponsors of Eat! Drink! Italy!

We’re excited to announce two outstanding new sponsors of Eat! Drink! Italy! with Vic Rallo: ZioBaffa Wines and the film Bella Vita!

ZioBaffa Wines

Filmmaker Jason Baffa has been fortunate enough to travel the globe with his friends and a film-camera creating moving pictures about their love for surfing.  The films, “Singlefin: yellow,” “One California Day” and the newly released and award winning, “Bella Vita,” embrace the inspired life of the care-free surfing sub-culture.

During the first days of filmmaking in Italy with surfer-environmentalist, Chris Del Moro and winemaker, Piergiorgio Castellani on “Bella Vita,” Baffa’s passion for good food, thirst-quenching libation and a few late-night practical jokes, inspired the  local crew of surfers to nick-name him, Zio Baffa (Uncle Baffa).

It is in the spirit of Zio Baffa (that somewhat off-beat fun-loving uncle we all may have) that we bring to you some of our favorite things to enjoy.  As with the filmmaking endeavors, ZIOBAFFA products take pride in authenticity with an attention to detail and quality.  Handmade by artisans with a focus on traditional and organic production, these are the things we keep going back to places like Italy for…   Now, we are bringing them to you.

Bella Vita

Born of mistral winds and witness to the birth of Western Civilization, the waves of the Italian coast have carried merchants, fishermen, travelers and kings. Preserved like a Roman ruin, the surf of the Italian coast now carries surfer, artist, and environmentalist Chris Del Moro on a pilgrimage back to his ancestral homeland to explore a culture where old-world-convention and traditional craftsmanship have matured into a modern surf lifestyle and destination.

Filmmaker Jason Baffa chronicles Chris and his friends Dave Rastovich, Lauren Lyndsey Hill, Conner & Parker Coffin and Italian stand-outs Alessandro Ponzanell and Leonardo Fioravanti as they explore the burgeoning new surf culture blossoming among the Mediterranean’s oldest and cherished traditions.

A visual epic captured in stunning 35mm, Bella Vita is an intimate and powerful journey of self-discovery, seeped in culture, tradition, and passion- where family comes first.
