Over a century of winemaking: four generations of passion, tenacity, investments and hard work. The origins of Agricola Marrone date back to before 1887. A family that cultivated local grape varietals and showed ambition from an early phase.
In the early 1920s/30s the winery progressed and started cultivating vineyards using techniques that were revolutionary at the time: reducing production yields to prioritize higher quality and avoiding sowing wheat between vine rows, a standard practice at the time. An early adoption of what became modern cultivation practices. The family grapes became the most beautiful of the village, so slowly all the vineyards converted to that modern production system.
Since 2011 the winery is run by “Tre Fie,” the three daughters of Gian Piero and Giovanna. Valentina is the winemaker, Serena runs marketing and business operations, and Denise is the hospitality heart and manager of the visitor programs and restaurant. They farm with the least intervention and carry that through harvest to winemaking. “Oak in wine is like salt in soup.” This statement perfectly illustrates the careful attention the Marrone family pays to their wines – resulting in elegance with structure, delicious and judiciously crafted wines that are enjoyable at release and evolve for decades.
