Owner of Copa di Vino comments on Shark Tank wine scammer


James Martin, owner, CEO and Founder of Copa di Vino, emailed Wine Industry Insight a statement on the Shark Tank wine scammer:


“Joseph Falcone did not pitch Copa di Vino on Shark Tank, nor was he ever an investor in the product. I was the only person to appear on the show on behalf of my brand. In fact, I did not engage with his company, 3G’s VINO LLC, until four years after my Shark Tank pitch.


“I am not familiar with any details around his indictment as we were in no way involved, but was very saddened to hear that he was using our Copa di Vino brand to mislead investors. His company was strictly our distributor. We severed ties with Joseph and his company in 2016. “
