In 1900, John Volpi arrived in America from his home in Milan, Italy. Longing for the vibrant tastes of his homeland, John founded Volpi foods in 1902. From his small storefront in St. Louis, John delivered authentic Italian cuisine to a new audience. Today, the Volpi continues to live out John's dream, supplying Americans across the country with fine Italian fare made from exceptional ingredients.
On the northern edge of the Apennines is the region of Emilia-Romagna. The region enjoys a rich and ancient history, accentuated by the vibrant capital city of Bologna. The spiritual home of parmesan cheese, prosciutto, and traditional aged balsamic vinegar, Emilia-Romagna is home to some of Italy's most treasured culinary traditions.
