The art of winemaking has always been the main occupation of the Fiamberti family, who live on the gorgeous hills of the Oltrepò Pavese area in Northern Italy. This is mentioned in a lot of documents that trace back up to two centuries ago. Over the decades anyway we have brought along a modern and efficient complex, so that now Fiamberti has mixed the families oldest traditions with modern structures. Therefore today the winery represent a great example as far as farming and enology are concerned. Producing a tasty wines is the result of great effort. The first step towards such an achievement, of course, is taking care of the vineyards. Fiamberti terrains stretch for over 15 hectares, on a very harsh and steep area, and all carry the “Denominazione di Origine Controllata” DOC appellation. The great efforts Fiamberti put in farming this rough land is paid back when it comes to taste the quality of the grapes that are produced in such a harsh environment. Every single vine is associated with the most suitable grapes, with special implants, and is given the opportunity to face the sun light all day long. Another important step is the harvesting, still made by hand, when it is up to the professionals to choose the good grapes and let the bad ones stay. The hills around Canneto Pavese have always been considered exceptional for the production of red wines, such as Buttafuoco, Bonarda, Barbera and Sangue di Giuda, but recently we have proven that the Pinot and Riesling grapes also produce great wines in the area. Some of the wines are produced with grapes of other local wine growers who have grown up with them under the supervision of the Fiamberti winery. Inside state-of-the art cellars, located right in the centre of Canneto Pavese, next to the XVII century church, the wine comes to life and where soon after it is bottled. Here is where the quality of the wines produced has to meet the demand of our competent customers, to whom Fiamberti's great products are dedicated with gratefulness. Every single member of the Fiamberti family deals everyday with the business, so that the quality of the wines is guaranteed by the Fiamberti family directly.
