Zonin 1821’s History and Philosophy

Large companies, especially those producing an important number of bottles, tend to be somewhat suspect among quality wine connoisseurs. This is obviously a prejudice, which names of companies such as Mondavi in ​​the United States and Antinori in Italy, should have silenced and it should be remembered that, in Bordeaux, the Médoc region has over 80-100 hectares of vineyards which, in the years best, it comes to produce half a million bottles.

This is only an introduction to the possessions of the Zonin family , owners of a substantial amount of hectares of vineyards in many parts of Italy. The construction of the empire naturally began generations ago and was based on the family’s main company in Veneto . This suffered a sudden acceleration in the years following the Second World War. And the purchases were not in small lots, in fact the company policy has always been oriented to acquire, in the selected areas, significant numbers of possessions to be cultivated.

Large estates are now owned and managed by Zonin in Friuli (around Aquileia ), in Tuscany ( Chianti, Maremma, San Gimignano ), in Lombardy ( Oltrepò Pavese ), in Piedmont (in the areas of Barbera and Grignolino d’Asti) , in Puglia (around Brindisi ) and in Sicily (in the central-eastern part of the island). The new generation has decided to bet not only on the soils, well managed and varied, but also on producing wines of true quality which, with the assistance of high-level internal and external wine consultants, achieve excellent results.
