WEBSITE

Ermanno Costa’s grandfather, Pietro, worked these vineyards as a sharecropper (mezzadria) in the 1950’s. Twenty eight years later his son purchased the property seeking to make wines with their family’s name on the bottle. Their first vintage was 1981. Today the fourth generation carries on the family business and passion in Ermanno’s children, Simone, Fabrizia and Giorgia.
