My great-grandfather Pietro, who founded the firm in 1895, initially concentrated its activity on milk production and field growing. His son Aurelio continued his activity and added also the viniculture and a littie wine production, mainlyto cover the family s needs. Afterwards my father Giorgio decided to specialize in viniculture, increasing the size of the vineyard and the wine production. After a long and dose collaboration with my father, I took over his activity and since then I have been focusing exclusively on viniculture and oenology. Nowadays our vineyard covers almost 30 acres and is elaborated with the method the integrated production. In average we make more than 95 000 bottles in a year, provided with the D.O.C label (Denominazione di Origine Controllata, the denomination of controlled origin).
