Our history began on 14th May 1920, when Cantina Sociale of Formigine was founded by 49 local growers. Mr. Eugenio Guastalla, forward-looking landowner of jewish origin, was designated as first president and managed the winery until 1938, when he had to resign following the approval of racial laws. The work started by those pioneers has never been broken off and, just after a century, the company has turned into “Cantina Formigine Pedemontana”, a modern concern set up by merging the Cantina Pedemontana of Sassuolo, formed by roughly 380 partners who grow rare grapes on an expense of 600 hectares of vineyards, 70% of Lambrusco Grasparossa di Castelvetro DOC.
The new factory, opened in 2006, has been conceived through forefront solutions, but without leaving out the tradition; a fusion of past and future thus combining the age-long experience of traditional wine-making and the refinement of a modern flavour. A tasting point and a practical and functional wine-shop welcomes the customers and offers high-quality products. Directly from the viticulturist to a custom, with dedication, abnegation and passion.
