  • Galantino

    The Galantino family business dates back to 1926, when Vito Galantino had the foresight and determination to acquire a majestic Nineteenth Century mill-house, and turned it into an olive oil mill. Since then, two generations of the Galantino family have run the mill, carrying it to dizzying heights of quality. Today the Galantino Mill uses olives from the Fenice family estate and from 2.000 reliable growers. Careful handing of the olive fruits at the best stage of ripeness, careful selection, washing and crushing in the great stone olive mills, cold pressing and centrifugal separation, enhance the flavour and fragrance of Galantino Extra Virgin Olive Oil. After laboratory analysis and organoleptic assessment, and only then, does our Master of Olive Oil select and certify the oil.

  • Costa dei Rosmarini

    Liguria is an astonishing Italian Region where mountains touch the sea, little fisherman villages keep their ancient beauty and olive trees grow in stone made terraces. Rosmarino Farm is an old house dominating the Tigullio Gulf right in front of the famous Portofino village.

  • Bellavista

    The Temecula wine region began developing in the mid-1960’s when The Kaiser Land Development Company purchased what was known as Vail Ranch in 1964 and began investing in and marketing the Temecula Valley. Horticulturalists were brought in to evaluate the area to learn what type of agricultural products could be grown. Along with avocados, the experts determined that wine vineyards were well suited for the valley. The cool moist air from the coast would settle in the Temecula Appellation in the evening and would burn off the following morning, perfect for grape growing. Vines were planted on our Calle Contento property in 1968 by the first owner. Five acres of the original acres are still producing adjacent to the winery, which was built in 1978.

    In 2004, Imre and Gizella Cziraki purchased the former Cilurzo Winery, the location of Temecula’s first commercial vineyard.

    Bella Vista’s owner Imre Cziraki began making wine at age 7 with his grandfather in Hungary. He purchased his first vineyard in La Cresta in 1982 which was followed by the purchase of his Bella Vista Vineyard in 1998 and the winery property in 2004.

    The first renovation was to take a large storage room and transform it into our expansive tasting bar. Other changes include improvements to our cask room where parties and receptions can be held.

    In the coming months the vista area above the winery will be completed with shady palapas areas along a brickwork walkway that circles our duck pond. In the future, facilities will be added to accommodate weddings, parties and events.

  • Il Boscetto

    An old Italian proverb says: “ For a good salad we need – the salt of a wise man, the vinegar of a miser, the oil of the altruist – a juggler to toss it and the hungry to eat it” All these characters are to be found at “Il Boschetto”; the wise man expertly conducts; the philanthropist lavishly provides excellent ingredients; the juggler skilfully mixes the ingredients and the miser spares nothing in passion or fantasy: the hungry ultimately enjoy the results!

  • Mulino Marino

    Our milling activity began in the mid 1950s when our father, Felice Marino, learned that there was a small mill for sale in the town of Cossano Belbo, complete with the original mill stones and rollers. Fascinated by the milling activity, he decided to buy it. Together with his wife and her parents, he began to produce a range of flours. At the time, it was mainly the roller mill that was used to produce "easy to work" and "fast to bake" flours — a symbol of modern times taking their toll. The products were widely distributed and and used mainly by bakers for bread making.

  • Podere Forte

    Pasquale Forte has a passion. The land. It is a passion with time-honoured origins; his Calabrian parents had land, vines and olive groves. Then the transfer of the family to Lombardy, his studies, his entrepreneurial adventures, which continue today, directed Pasquale Forte’s ambitions towards new destinations, new challenges. But the land and its products, wine and oil, have an irresistible charm for him. The Podere, which now takes his name, is of ancient origins. Having belonged to the historic Petrucci family of Siena for centuries, it was passed from owner to owner on the basis of the umpteen tortuous partitions among the heirs. Forte was looking for a farm in order to fulfil a dream. The Podere an owner that could return it to its former splendour. This meeting took place thanks to the research of architect Fabrizio Zambelli. And straight from the off the mission was a serious one: to regenerate the lands to produce a di-vine wine.

  • Caparzo

    The “Caparzo” name seems to originate from Ca' Pazzo, as seen in several ancient maps. The vineyards, cellars and all wine-making equipment were developed towards the end of the 1960s, with progressive adaptation and constant up-dating of both the land and the cellars. Innovative cultivation systems and, in particular, several clones are still experimented today on the estates - extending over an area of 200 hectares (470 acres), comprising 90 hectares of vineyards, 4 of olive groves, 87 of woodlands and 19 of sowable land. Caparzo aims to ensure top quality products through meticulous, craftsmanlike techniques while equally taking a modern approach to management, efficiency and business relationships. More than forty years have passed from the first rows of vines and from the first wine-shop experiences. Caparzo has since grown while keeping faith with the traditions of Brunello and the various localterroirs, at the same time as enhancing its wines with creative spirit and dedication to innovation as a means of ensuring the highest possible quality. This is why Caparzo wines are served by the most famous restaurants in the world, as well as at international meetings and on official State occasions.

  • Franz Haas

    The Franz Haas Winery has endeavoured to show the wines it produces always in the best light. It was established in 1880 and has been handed down through the generations up to now to a Franz Haas. Around 55 vine-planted hectares are worked, subdivided among owners, renters and assignees.Franz Haas has always been recognised as a great enthusiast and cultivator of themost difficult vine, one that is the most sensitive and repays the greatest: the Pinot Nero. Another detail that makes Franz Haas stand out is the collaboration with the artist Riccardo Schweizer, who designed the labels. He actually painted together with Picasso, Chagall, Cocteau, Paul Éluard oder Le Corbusier. All the labels were given to Franz by Maria Luisa Manna, as a good omen when he released his wines. The first label Franz chose was the fashionable Pinot Nero Schweizer label, whose first year was ’87, but released in ’90. Twenty-one years ago, much more traditional, simple labels were used, then the black and gold label came out, and as simple as it was, it certainly had an impact. But apart from the quality of the wine, people began to appreciate this type of label a lot, and even today, twenty years on, they stand out and are remembered on wine shop shelves and restaurant tables.

  • Venica&Venica

    Our history began in Mernico, a tiny village of 30 people just 3 kilometers from Dolegna del Collio where great-grandfather Daniele was born on March 9th 1898. He was the 2nd male of 11 children in a big farming family. Daniele was born and raised as an Austrian but on the February 6th 1930 he bought a small house and a hill in Dolegna del Collio. A few months later he became father of Adelchi, the only male of 3 children. After the war the property was a farm where vines and fruit trees were grown together biologically. The farm sustained the family's needs first and the excess was sold to restaurants in Udine and Cividale. For years Daniele and Adelchi worked together buying and working abandoned vineyards, experimenting to find the perfect combinations of vine and vineyard and creating a peculiar mosaic of microclimates surrounded by forest. Adelchi then had two sons, Gianni and Giorgio. They continued the viticultural philosophy of their parents and decided to maintain the same respectful approach. In the last three decades they developed ways to express in the cellar that peculiar sense of site that our wines are able to communicate.

  • INAMA

    We are a family who has been producing wine for more than forty years as our only activity. Now, at our third generation, we have a well-defined project: to produce different wines whose only aim is to represent our vision of the land, despite the styles and trends of the moment. Our agricultural system is organic because we think it yields better fruit, but we do not include this on our label. We believe in wine that generates emotions, preferably at “blind tasting” and, in order to do this, we have developed our own know-how without consulting experts and wine gurus. We believe in everyday living and oenological minimalism, respecting the winemaking good practices that have lain the foundations of modern wine.

  • Col Vetoraz

    Col Vetoraz lays on the very top of the homonymous hill next to the "Mont" of Cartizze in S. Stefano di Valdobbiadene.

  • La Casearia Carpenedo

    Antonio Carpenedo and his sons Ernesto and Alessandro, owners of the company "La Casearia Carpenedo srl.", come from an old family of cheese merchants. They have over thirty years of experience in the dairy-cheese sector and today devote themselves to producing innovative cheese. In a world spinning faster and faster where perfumes, tastes and colours are lost between the hands of the clock and the incessant quest for business, there is a "kingdom", in Camalò, as the press calls it, where true love for one's work, imagination, unceasing research and the recovery and the respect for traditions become real art. Art where not just experience but also creativeness and imagination are given full rein. This company has walked its path in the fascinating world of cheese since the time when to buy it one bartered it for other foodstuffs. The history of the Company began in the early 1900s when Ernesto Carpenedo, Antonio's father began to work as a "casoin" (a dialect term meaning a cheese seller) in a little shop in the village of Preganziol (TV). They certainly were not golden times but passion and commitment made it possible to lay the basis for a solid company that he then handed down to his son. Antonio with twenty years of dairy experience under his belt has, since 1976, dedicated all his efforts to refining and it was precisely in that year that the first rounds of cheese were steeped in the vats of vinasse giving birth to the cheese called Ubriaco (the Italian word for "drunk"). From that year on, he began his splendid career as refiner, where all his will to create and his imagination have been turned into unique products distinguished by passion and experience. Today, also thanks to the assistance rendered by sons Ernesto and Alessandro, "the Cheeses of the Antonio Carpenedo cellar" are not only appreciated around Europe but overseas as well.

  • Monograno felicetti

    For more than a century the history of pasta making and the history of our family have been inseparably intertwined. It took fourth generations and finally our grandfather Valentino’s vision, which saw his small workshop grow into a successful company that is well-known for its quality products the world over, has come true. In order to achieve this, our family dedicated their lives to this work in times of war and crisis, and by facing down big challenges our company emerged successful. One can only understand the meaning of this history when tracing what has never changed through all that happened. Since 1908 the same family, with the same values, has been working passionately in the beautiful landscape of the Dolomites.

  • Fabbri

    More than 100 years have passed since Giovanni Fabbri began producing pasta in a small village in the heart of the Chianti. It all started, in the way that things usually start, with an idea, a few available means and lots and lots of passion. After four generations, naturally much has changed, including many things in the Fabbri pasta factory…

    …and yet that passion has remained intact!

  • Antica Ardenga

    ANTICA ARDENGA is a small company, producing a limited quantity of ‘salumi’ in the north-east part of the province of Parma. Known as ‘Bassa’ (that means lowland), is characterised by the proximity to the river Po; this area has an important tradition for the production of high quality ‘salumi’. One of the reason is the ideal climate, with its cold and humid winters. The production is concentrated in the winter time; this is actually the most favourable time, when this rigid climate, with its fog and the typical freezing of the soil in the early morning. This conditions are ideal to work the meats in the traditional way.

  • Macelleria Falorni

  • Loison

    Three generations of passion. To make such soft and delicate confections, that yield the same fragrance that artisan bakeries can produce, takes special ingredients, a slow and natural rising process, gradual cooling and patience, because good things cannot be rushed. Something that not all businesses can accomplish. But above all, what it takes is three generations of passionate people. Grandfather Tranquillo, the first to fall in love with the art of bread making, passed it on to his son Alessandro. Together they turned the bakery into an actual family-run business with a new workshop that opened in 1969. Dario is now the head of the company with over 75 years of experience and progress.

    Skillfully mixing simplicity with love for genuine products, time and foresight can yield one-of-a-kind results, because artisan pastry making cannot be rushed: time is needed to exalt and skillfully combine delicate flavors full of history. It is the art of transforming tradition into quality.

  • Brandini

    ...Sometimes, in order to reach an ideal, one has to muster the courage to take the most difficult road.

    We have been practicing organic agriculture for years, because we want to leave our soil in a better state than we found it in. All of our choices are based on our respect for the environment, for those who work with us, and for our clients.
