(Emilia-Romagna, Italy)

In 1919, Bruno Zanasi was born and from a young age he was introduced to the world of agriculture, learning a trade which had already been launched by his father. So, in 1957, the teachings of his father led him to buy a piece of land in San Vito which had an area of almost 10 acres. However it was this period which saw the birth of the industry and young workers, attracted by this innovation and the prospect of higher wages, abandoned farming and working in the fields. Over time, the Zanasi family restructured its estate, buying other plots near Castelnuovo, Castelvetro, and Spilamberto. Now Bruno Zanasi’s grandson, Marco, is a true professional, thanks to the teachings of his grandfather who prepared him, with patience and passion, for the procedures required in the processing and producing wine. He now also attends to the company, anticipating the day when his younger brother, Matteo, who is currently a student, can then collaborate with him to move the company forward, and continue that which their grandfather built with hard work and sacrifice.
