This story began way back in 1882, when Achille Ferrari, carpenter and expert cooper met Antonio Perini, a young farmer and vine-grower from Val d’Arda. Their enthusiasm in producing wine transformed this occasional cooperation into a real wine-growing vocation, which, exalted by passion, has been handed down from generation to generation with increasing commitment and professionalism. Their respective children, Renato and Guido, were assigned the task of driving the business through the two wars. And their grandchildren, Marisa, Francesco, Delfino, Emilio and Bernardo, were called to consolidate and expand upon it. Their great grandchildren, Paolo, Massimo, Stefano, Lucia, Paola and Sandra, were then put in charge of guiding it professionally and with true passion, into the new millennium, together with the new “recruits”, Alessandro, Giulia and Camilla.
In the late 1800s, the horse-drawn carts were called to take the vats of grapes into town. “They came to Piacenza from the hills and our grandfather would make the wine”, Marisa Perini (maiden name: Ferrari) recalls.
A marriage then further strengthened the united destinies of the two families, between Marisa Ferrari and Emilio Perini, both children of the family heads. This sealed the start of an era that would open up to great growth.
Today, the wines of the Ferrari and Perini families are mentioned in the very best national food and wine magazines and guides.
