THE HISTORY
 

The historic presence of the Gini family, vine growers in the area of Monteforte d'Alpone, dates back to round1600, according to documents and other evidence. At this time Camillo Gini, progenitor of a family which today still has the name Camillo as a "nick name". A deed of sale dated 1852 during the Lombard-Veneto Reign testifies that Giuseppe Gini acquired a vineyard in the area of Contrada Salvarenza, where the family had owned land since the 18th century. Generations of wine growers, men who with their hard, back breaking work cultivated our land with great attention and who handed down an enormous amount of experience to the present generation. Olinto who was born in 1929 and is a master wine maker has passed on his passion to his sons Sandro and Claudio and together they have made these vineyards into one of the most beautiful and famous in Veneto.
