Umberto Luchini is the Founder and Proprietor of Wolf Spirit LLC, a company which develops and owns spirit brands – such as Blood x Sweat x Teams Vodka of Eugene, OR — as well as imports and markets others, such as Tom of Finland Organic Vodka from Finland.
Umberto was born in Milan, Italy into a small, tight-knit family. He attended school in London, worked in France, became jobless after 9/11, and took a low-paying job with a great brand: Campari (Monaco). Umberto rose through the marketing ranks, ultimately moving to San Francisco in 2004, where he resides today as an American citizen.
Umberto remained in Campari America for 17 years, during which he formed an award-winning team of 30 marketers; and developed Espolon tequila (which is often compared to Tito’s Vodka because of its explosive growth). In 2018, Umberto founded Wolf Spirit.
Umberto is happier than ever and working harder than ever to grow his own company and brands, as he did in the past for many others. In his spare time, he enjoys high-endurance sports and traveling.
