Gino Desalvatore began working at Franklin Wine and Spirits in 2011 when Dave Clark first bought the store and in 2018 when Dave wanted to semi-retire, Gino stepped in and purchased the store. Gino’s day job is Director of Therapeutic Foster Care, Prevention Services and Early Intervention Services for Centerstone. He has been working in the social services field with kids for close to 40 years.
Gino has also been around wine for 40 years! He and his wife Vicki ran a catering business in Boston, pairing wines and other beverages with prepared foods. They regularly attend wine tastings in California and travel to Italy and Spain to explore wines in these countries. Future plans for the store include - hosting in store events and expanding wine tastings to the community at area condos and apartments as well as nearby corporate offices.
Franklin Wine and Spirits is located in the McKay's Mill neighborhood next to Publix.
We look forward seeing you!
