As the world’s top wine producer by volume, Italy possesses indisputable wine wealth and expertise dating back to the 7th century BCE. From Piedmont’s hills to Puglia’s sun-drenched parcels, each region has its very own character. The unique and diverse terroirs grow incomparable indigenous varieties and especially well adapted international ones. Needless to say, Italian wines reflect the local cuisine: versatile, varied and irresistible.
The impressive range of Italian wines and passion of the artisans who produce them are what Alessandro Berselli seeks to highlight. With meticulously selected cuvées from eleven wine-growing regions, he turns the spotlight on local expertise and know-how.
Skill and experience
When Alessandro Berselli started his business 30 years ago, French wines dominated the market. Still, he knew Italy’s over 350 indigenous varieties, wide-ranging and incredibly rich terroirs and extraordinarily skilled winemakers held inestimable potential. Looking to Italy’s wine-making heritage, he refined and innovated by creating authentic and balanced offerings. Today, with some 50 million bottles sold worldwide, he can certainly say mission accomplished!
