The Marchesini Family: passion for life and the land.

It all started at beginning of 1950’s, when Plinio Marchesini, a farmers son with a great passion for the land, farming and in particular the vines, started to produce a small amount of wine to enjoy with his friends.

The great dedication, determination and love that he put into this new passion, in a short space of time brought a new business of producing and the start of a detailed trade in the Veronese area.

The huge predisposition to satisfy his clients, offering a door to door service gave him the opportunity to make his products known and appreciated in the whole of the North of Italy.
The importance of keeping a genuine and very high quality wine was passed on to Plinio’s son Marcello, who slowly started to be his fathers right hand man from the 1990’s in order to learn, follow and enlarge the family’s activity.

Over the years the business has extended it’s brand on most of the national and international territory.
Germany, Belgium, Holland and other European countries are just some. There have been some important international business in process for some years now working with professionals in North America and more recently an important collaboration with China.

Wine making and processing: a mix of manual and technological works.

Over the years the company has constantly updated its wine-making systems making sure it keeps pace with the times, new technologies and machinery.

Pressing, which is used especially for white and Rose wines is a fundamental process, it uses a pneumatic press for the central membrane that allows you to extract only the juice from the skins and give it the ability to start the fermentation with a higher quality than any other system with a thermal control of musts and wines.

A totally manual management can be done as the vineyards it is a medium-small sized business. The works on the land are carried out with particular care from pruning in the summer, when the best grapes are selected, the collection is a fundamental moment for a successful wine.

The grapes are taken to the cellar with great care in order to keep them totally integral.

A selection is made from the 1500 hectoliters of the annual production and a selection is made in the best tanks.

50 % remains in the family run business and is destined to be bottled, the remainder however, is marked in bulk.
