Vitaleone

Vitaleone was created in 2020 when Jonny Vitale (of the Vitale restaurants) moved to Sicily with his new wife, who is a native of Italy. Her family has owned and operated an olive grove for over 70 years and Jonny saw the opportunity to import the amazing Italian food products to America. GRVC invested in the business in October of 2020 with the goal to provide capital and strategic oversight on the business. Vitaleone's first harvest is here and will be hitting the shelves throughout 2021.
