About the company

I would like to take you on a journey through Italy with our delicious Pasta Chips, an idea born in the hills of Tuscany at a small, authentic Osteria, where food comes alive with the passion associated with Italy. It was here I was served fresh pasta dough drizzled with olive oil, topped with a few salt crystals. Everything was gently baked. I was in LOVE. As soon as I tasted this unique chip, I wanted to share with each one of you. SO simple but so good! This was the perfect chip.

Pasta Chips are made with semolina flour and Italian herbs. We’ve married this Tuscan inspired chip with different seasonings based on regional Italian favorites, steeped in hundreds of years of Italian culture and living. I hope you enjoy Pasta Chips and the journey which brought it to life. I thoroughly enjoy creating innovative and interesting snacks. It’s my passion! - Jerry Bello, Founder

Spirits Spotlight: Enovation Brands, Inc. Announces the Launch of Gemma di Luna


Italian-centric Importer Adds a Premium Sparkling Moscato in Stand Out Bottle to Their Inimitable Portfolio of Innovative Brands

AVENTURA, Fla., Nov. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Enovation Brands, Inc. is pleased to announce the introduction of Gemma di Luna Moscato to its product line-up. Gemma di Luna embodies the company's mission to deliver distinctively original, high quality products in equally creative packaging.

Gemma di Luna is a premium Italian sparkling wine intended to elevate the Moscato experience. The wine is crafted from premium Moscato grapes grown in Italy's Piemonte region and boasts a fuller effervescence than the gentle frizzante style typical of moscato for a fully sparkling or "spumante" quality. The wine displays a lovely straw color and delightfully persistent perlage, an intense, yet delicate bouquet with juicy grape notes and the luscious fresh fruit flavors of nectarine, peach and apple balanced by a vibrant acidity. Winemakers Walter Zuccotto and Michela Bandinelli worked together to create a Sparkling Moscato of superior quality, and at 7.5% ABV, Gemma di Luna also satisfies the growing consumer trend towards lower alcohol choices.

The Gemma di Luna bottle reflects the creativity and quality of the wine inside. The distinctive teal bottle is adorned with a pearl white label and capsule enhanced with a laser foil effect reminiscent of pavé diamonds.

"Gemma di Luna represents and delivers on the dedication of Enovation Brands to create, differentiate and innovate for today's adventurous consumer," said Lisa Schuster, National Marketing Director. "We will continue to meet their insatiable appetite for discovery, break down barriers and biases in the wine space and unabashedly meet this need head on with relevant, story driven, purposeful products like Gemma di Luna."

The marketing campaign behind Gemma di Luna presents the wine as "Italy's New Gem" and stems from the meaning of the brand name, "Gem of the Moon". The color scheme and sparkling aspect of the packaging are reflected across the marketing mix. Social media will inspire and engage consumers with the call to create and share their "Gemma Moments", while a targeted events platform will engage the bridal and special events communities from both a consumer and trade perspective.

Gemma di Luna is available nationwide for a suggested retail price of $16.99.

For U.S. sales and distribution inquiries, please contact 305-794-4668 or info@enovationbrands.com. More info is available at www.gemmadiluna.wine.
