My father was a farmer, and he transmitted to me his passion for our land, but the first 10 working years, I’ve started in the industrial environment. One day I found the vines of Santa Colomba, located in that wonderful park, a creation of prince Giovannelli: I fell in love, but time was not there yet… University of Oenology in Verona in 2003, then a meeting with Loacker (the one from the wines, not the wafer’s one…) Seven years with him in Montalcino, and an experience in the valley dell’Agno with Franco Masiero. Then a transfert in Lugana, to my university collegue Alessandro Cutolo. Finally I return to the origin of everything: Santa Colomba, and a new beginning…
We are dedicated to craft wine. Real wine produced by real people in limited quantity, from the new generation of natural winemakers to the classic high-end Burgundians. Sorry, no industrial wine here!
We are not just another Direct-to-Consumer website. Actually, we don't sell directly to consumers at all, as we believe selling wine is an art. We don't want to replace it, rather just make it easier, so you can focus on the art.
We believe the trade should be as fluid as wine. Processes, information and transactions should flow as a fine wine, in and out of a Zalto glass. That's where a Digital Platform can help.
For the wine market to be healthy, firstly it must take care of the producers. We believe that the trade should be fair and transparent, across all channels, from the producer to the final consumer.
