Michael J. Noonan
President & CEO
Through humble beginnings as one member of a family of eleven children, the President and CEO of Global Wines, Inc. has emerged as a seasoned entrepreneur with over 25 years’ experience, primarily in the telecommunication industry.
Michael J. Noonan has been a pioneer in the development and commercialization of fiber-optic technology, supporting a vast array of product development. The culmination of his efforts was in the deployment of key, optical components utilized in Verizon’s $23 billion-dollar FIOS program.
Mr. Noonan’s passion for wine led him into this recent venture. In 2006, Michael began his search for sourcing quality, valued wines from all over the world, to bring to his community.
Mr. Noonan has served on various boards of directors and continues to invest in technology companies. Michael and his wife Marybeth have been very active in philanthropic work throughout Central Massachusetts. They have made significant contributions to education, healthcare and the arts in Worcester County, over the past 10 years. In 2005, after the sale of FONS, they established their own private foundation that continues to help the needy in Massachusetts.
Antonio Delle Donne
Portfolio Director & International Business Development
Antonio Delle Donne is Global Wines’ resident third-generation wine maker from the Abruzzo region of Italy. Most of Antonio’s winemaking experience has been in Tuscany, in the Chianti and Brunello appellations, two of the world’s most prestigious wine regions.
Antonio began his craft working alongside his father and grandfather at their home vineyard when he was a young boy. His career has brought him all over the world and to nearly every wine region, but his favorite varietal remains Montepulciano – as it is the “King Grape” of his home village, Abruzzo.
Since moving to the US in 2013, Antonio has developed our Global Wines portfolio to where it is today. Antonio works with all of our suppliers to masterfully craft each, individual varietal blend that GWI imports. The strong partnership that Antonio and GWI have cultivated with its partner suppliers have enabled our team to be extremely involved in the wine importing process; from the production of wine, to the ownership of the packaging.
Marketing & Branding
Global Wines is unique in that we are not only an importer of exclusive, Estate label wines, but we hold an in-house branding department as well. The Global Wines marketing team works with Antonio and the sales team, to gain a full understanding of the market demands.
From brainstorming concepts to focus group sessions, the GWI marketing team is able to design and develop labels that fall in line with demands and trends. By holding Trademark and Copyright protection over brands, Global Wines is able to maintain full protection of the packaging, and therefore guarantee exclusivity on its entire portfolio.
The marketing team is responsible for hosting promotional and tasting events throughout our distribution territories. By encouraging consumers to try our exclusive brands and fine wines, we are working to create a market demand for our labels among every segment of the market.

Our drivers provide unmatched professionalism and customer service when making deliveries and merchandising any store location.
National & Regional Sales
Our sales force works directly with retailers and edges out competition through the formation of personal relationships and by closely working with the customer. GWI sales representatives are reliable, who, at all times, remain loyal to the retailer and intelligent about the consumer. With an entrepreneurial spirit and passion for the wine industry, our sales team strategically and aggressively targets customers with an understanding of their market needs and inventory “wants”.
Several of our field representatives are Certified Wine Specialists and are able to speak and present at every retail level. Global Wines, though a relatively small organization, is able stand up against its competitors when presenting to major national retailers, and local family wine shops alike.
