While in Italy in June 2014, and searching online for more Simioni, we found Simioni Imports in Evanston, Illinois, USA. It's crazy -- I have family I visit there and never knew about this company.
I've been chatting with Danny Simeone (name spelling changed by his grandfather).
I can't wait to go back to visit family and friends in Evanston and Elmhurst to meet Danny and his father Roberto in person (and maybe drink a little wine?)
It's possible that someday they will produce a Simioni label wine. That would be fun, wouldn't it?
Their family is also from Cittadella and Castelfranco Veneto so they may be related to some of our families.
Danny: maybe you can give us a little Simioni family tree info: great-grandfather's name, etc.
