What's Sunrise Imports all about?
Manuel Magnani, a young Italian man from Rome, with a passion for travel and geography, embarked on a journey of self-discovery in the United States in 1993.
At his first job at the Epcot Center in Orlando, Florida, he developed a newfound love of wine which changed his life forever. After a few years of focus in the Wine Industry, his knowledge and confidence thrived, and he started his own Import Company in 2004, called Sunrise Wines.
In the past three years, he has established a Wine Distributorship, as well.

He is a humble businessman who tirelessly works daily to share his distinctive wines of quality. His approach to life is pure and organic with love for people. Thus, his imported wines reflect the same essence of his life. The wines come from small, boutique wineries run by people that Manuel knows personally and share his same passion for life and wine.

Sunrise Wines is headquartered in Raleigh, NC, serving the state with his delicious, heartfelt wines. He has also recently expanded to South Carolina, Tennessee, Ohio and Kentucky.

More about Sunrise Wines:

"Sunrise Wines is new to the Asheville area," says Gina Trippi, co-owner of MetroWines. "The selection of Sunrise Wines for the tasting are well priced, versatile, and perfect for the transition to the cooler weather."
