Leo was born and raised in San Francisco, and into the restaurant and wine business as well. The family not only has the Petroni Vineyard, but also the North Beach restaurant where Leo spent much of his time growing up.
With an Italian immigrant father, Leo never had to worry about having a good meal, or the accompanying glass of wine that came with it. Leo shares his passion for the wine business with his father, as well as time with family and friends.
These days, Leo travels back and forth between visiting his mom in Palm Springs and the family home in San Francisco and enjoys long walks on the beach with his Pomeranian, Bubba. Leo serves on the Board of Directors of the St. Mary’s Medical Center Foundation.
