Founded in 1980, Regal Wine Imports is an importer and wholesale distributor of fine wines and craft beers based in Moorestown, New Jersey. Co-founders Dan Bada and Charlie Trivinia believe that expert palates and the development of long-term, meaningful relationships are the keys to building a successful company. For over 30 years, Regal has held true to that vision.

Dan Bada

President & Co-founder

Dan and Charlie have known each other since childhood. In fact, their mothers emigrated to the U.S. together from Le Marches, Italy, and lived in the same house for some time.  Going their separate ways for their university years, Dan attended Trenton State College and started a career in special education after graduation.  Several years later, he and Charlie reunited and decided to launch a wine import and distribution business.  In the early years, they both performed all aspects of the business from wine selection and purchasing to sales and delivery.  Today Dan serves as the company’s President and spends most of his time in a Sales capacity, while continuing to play a key role in shaping the company’s portfolio.

Charlie Trivinia

CEO & Co-founder

Dissatisfied with the work environment of his job after graduating from Dayton University, Charlie re-connected with his childhood friend, Dan, and together they decided to create a new company that would be a great place to work.  From that beginning in 1980, Regal now counts over 75 employees, with three offices and a broad wholesale and distribution network.  Charlie has assumed the role of Chief Executive Officer, focusing on the firm’s day-to-day operations and strategic planning to continue the company’s growth.  Both Charlie and Dan strive to maintain mutually beneficial relationships with employees, customers, and suppliers alike.  This aim and the desire to build a nourishing and rewarding work environment form the heart of Regal’s Core Values.

I'm a St. Louis native and a proud graduate of Indiana University (Go Hoosiers!) A classically trained actor and singer, I recently discovered that my passion for performing complemented a new found passion for wine and viticulture. I've enthusiastically worked for Regal since March 2016 and have loved every minute of it.

After stints in finance and dot-coms, a passion for food and wine led me into the world of restaurants and then wine importing. So, now I taste wine for work and do spreadsheets for fun.

I joined Regal in 2018 after being a professional chef and hospitality professional for years. I love dogs, my family, and days spent in the sunshine on the lake! Studying wine keeps me busy, as does running around this crazy city. My favorite wine to drink is Malbec.

Awesome customer service rep by day, liquid courage slinging bartender by night & proud mother all the time. I don’t always have personal time, but when I do, I enjoy sleeping and watching Law & Order marathons. I like pina coladas & getting caught in the rain. I’m not much into health food. I am into champagne.

I have two great daughters, a son-in-law, and a little shih-tzu named Gizmo. The most relaxing time of my day is coffee in bed while I watch the morning news. I never leave the house without making my bed. I love going out to dinner, espresso martinis and chocolate. Go EAGLES!!!

I initially worked at Traino’s Wine and Spirits in Marlton, N.J., a boutique spirits shop, for 3.5 years before coming aboard to Regal in January 2018. I have my WSET level 2 certification and extensively expanded my tasting palette and wine knowledge working under the wine director Nina at Traino’s, which ultimately led me to my current position of Brand Manager here at Regal. I love my job!
