The Perfect Vacation: Aldo Disorbo on Italian Vineyards


There are fewer sights more beautiful than Italy, notes Aldo Disorbo, an Italian-American businessman from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

The Italian countryside is filled with the sweet scent of success, explains Aldo Disorbo. The landscape is dotted with vineyards and wineries, both new and old. According to Aldo Disorbo, Italy has something for even the most ardent wine enthusiast. Here, the founder of Nationwide Relocation Services opens up about his

family’s heritage and shares some of his favorite spots for romance and relaxation.

ZRYLW: Good evening, thank you for taking time out of your schedule to chat with us. Can you tell us a bit about your business for those readers who are unfamiliar with Nationwide Relocation Services?

Aldo Disorbo: Yes, thank you. Nationwide Relocation Services is a moving brokerage firm. We help people and businesses pair up with a mover who has the capabilities the client needs.

ZRYLW: Capabilities? Aren’t all movers the same?

Aldo Disorbo: Many movers cannot handle large items such as pianos or vehicles. Some may not have a truck large enough to manage a cross-country trip.

ZRYLW: So, movers are chosen according to the customer’s personal situation?

Aldo Disorbo: Exactly.

ZRYLW: Getting on track with tonight’s topic. What are some of your favorite places in Italy?

Aldo Disorbo: There are three districts that come to mind: Piedmont, Tuscany, and Sicily.

ZRYLW: And what is so special about these places?

Aldo Disorbo: They are all very well-known for their artisan winemakers.

ZRYLW: What are some of your favorites?

Aldo Disorbo: In the Piedmont area, the Ceretto Aziende Vitivinicole winery offers a great tour. It is a third generation winery and stretches across four villages.

ZRYLW: That sounds like a very large corporation.

Aldo Disorbo: A corporation it’s not. This, like most vineyards in the area, is a family owned endeavor.

ZRYLW: What’s notable about this particular establishment?

Aldo Disorbo: Unlike most traditional winemakers, the Ceretto family tends to lean toward modern art. In fact, visitors may elect a tour that specifically highlights the estate’s art collection.

ZRYLW: Moving on. You mentioned Tuscany?

Aldo Disorbo: This is one of the most historical wine regions in the world.

ZRYLW: Give us a history lesson.

Aldo Disorbo: Let’s look at the Villa Vignamaggio. This 14th century estate has been making wine since at least the early 1400s. This particular establishment covers over a third of Chianti.

ZRYLW: And it is operational today?

Aldo Disorbo: Yes – more so than ever. The estate has a wellness center as well as luxury accommodations.

ZRYLW: You mentioned Sicily earlier…

Aldo Disorbo: One of my favorite places to visit when I’m in Europe is Sicily. As for wineries, Planeta is situated amongst the most beautiful and romantic surroundings in the world.

ZRYLW: Is this a historical site?

Aldo Disorbo: The winery no; the grounds yes.

ZRYLW: Explain, please.

Aldo Disorbo: The on-site winemaking business was not launched until 1995. However, the property is the site of an ancient Arabic castle, which is steeped in antiquity and old-world charm.

ZRYLW: Are all of these locations available to the public?

Aldo Disorbo: Yes, but I’d recommend calling ahead to ensure they are available for tours.

ZRYLW: Great travel tips. Thank you for your time today. We look forward to hearing more about Italy later.


Aldo Disorbo has always strongly identified with his heritage. He believes that respecting the past is the best way to prepare for the future. Through Nationwide Relocation Services and his other business endeavors, Aldo Disorbo has found success utilizing his family-instilled values if hard work and integrity.



Consultant Aldo Todini explains Business Management Systems

We recently sat down with Aldo Todini, a business consultant based out of Udine, Italy, about Business Management Systems and why using a trained auditor can greatly increase its worth.

Q: Thank you, Aldo Todini, for speaking with us today. We are pleased to present you to our international readership.

Aldo Todini: I am very happy to be here.

Q: First, can you explain what a Business Management System is?

Aldo Todini:  Essentially, it is having procedures and plans written out as guidelines for running a business. An effective plan will be written so that every operation in the company can be performed by anyone reading it.

Q: So it means to create standard operating procedures?

Aldo Todini: This is just one aspect of a proper business management plan.

Q: If you had to simplify the process, how would you describe it?

Aldo Todini: Evaluate your procedures to determine areas that need improvement and then do it.

Q: How is that achieved?

Aldo Todini: It depends on the business and its needs.

Q: How long does it take to create and begin using a business plan?

Aldo Todini: It can take weeks or months to really get started. After areas of need are identified and SOPs in place, it’s a continual process of monitoring for compliance and finding new areas to improve upon.

Q: How are they monitored?

Aldo Todini: Many companies choose to have both internal and external audits. An internal audit will usually be performed by a team of executives and supervisory staff. An external audit is completed by an outside source familiar with the company’s industry.

Q: Why have outside auditors?

Aldo Todini: There are many benefits to this. First, an independent audit can identify deficiencies possibly overlooked by staff. And, many top companies require their suppliers to pass a certain level of compliance with industry standards in order to do business with the company.

Q: You mention industry standards. How does a company get certified as compliant?

Aldo Todini: An external auditor can verify that the business they are inspecting maintains operational procedure standards and quality. This makes the company more likely to gain customers who need products manufactured to certain standards.

Q: We appreciate your time today but we must close for now. Thank you.

Aldo Todini: The pleasure is mine.

Aldo Todini consulente d’azienda spiega i sistemi di gestione aziendale.

Un recente incontro con Aldo Todini, consulente d’affari con sede a Udine, Italia, sui sistemi di gestione aziendale e perché con un auditor addestrato può aumentare notevolmente il valore d’impresa.

Domanda: Grazie, Aldo Todini, per questa chiacchierata. Siamo lieti di presentarla ai nostri lettori di tutto il Mondo.

Aldo Todini: Sono contento di essere qui a parlare con voi.

Domanda: In primo luogo, si può spiegare in cosa consiste un sistema di gestione aziendale?

Aldo Todini: Essenzialmente si tratta di definire procedure e piani strategici come linee guida per la gestione di un’impresa. Un piano efficace sarà scritto in modo che ogni operazione in azienda possa essere eseguita da chiunque abbia letto la procedura.

Domanda: Quindi significa creare procedure operative standard?

Aldo Todini: Questo è solo un aspetto di un piano di gestione aziendale.

Domanda: Se dovesse esemplificare il processo, come lo descriverebbe?

Aldo Todini: Valutare le procedure per determinare le aree che necessitano di miglioramento e poi applicare i correttivi necessari.

Domanda: Come viene raggiunto questo obiettivo?

Aldo Todini: Dipende dal tipo di business e dalle sue necessità specifiche.

Domanda: Quanto tempo ci vuole per creare e applicare un business plan?

Aldo Todini: questa fase iniziale può richiedere settimane o anche mesi in funzione della complessità. Dopo che le aree d’intervento sono state identificate e sono state applicate le SOP (Standard Operating Procedures, Procedure Operative Standard), si tratta di un processo continuo di controllo di conformità e la ricerca di nuove aree da migliorare.

Domanda: Come vengono monitorati i processi?

Aldo Todini: Molte aziende scelgono di avere controlli sia interni che esterni. Un audit interno di solito effettuato da un team di dirigenti e del personale di controllo. La revisione contabile esterna è completata da professionalità esterne con esperienza nell’industria dove opera la società.

Domanda: Perché abbiano revisori esterni?

Aldo Todini: Ci sono molti vantaggi. In primo luogo una verifica indipendente permette di identificare le carenze eventualmente trascurati dal piano e dal personale di vigilanza. Inoltre molte aziende richiedono ai loro fornitori certificazioni specifiche prima di poter avere relazioni d’affari con l’azienda cliente.

Domanda: Lei parla di standard di settore. Come fa una società a ottenere le certificazioni necessarie?

Aldo Todini: Un revisore esterno è in grado di verificare che l’azienda che sta seguendo mantenga gli standard di qualità e procedure operative necessarie per la certificazione. Questo offre all’azienda maggiori possibilità nella fase di acquisizione dei clienti che necessitano di prodotti fabbricati secondo determinati standard.

Domanda: Grazie per il tempo che ci ha dedicato oggi. Grazie.

Aldo Todini: Il piacere è mio.
