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.
