FERRARI TRENTO

FERRARI TRENTO

Established in 1902 in Italy's northern region of Trentino, Ferrari has earned worldwide recognition as the premier producer of Italian luxury sparkling wines. Ferrari is Italy’s leading Metodo Classico winery and a symbol of the Italian Art of Living.

Cultivated along the foothills of the Alps, all Ferrari labels are Trentodoc; bottle fermented sparkling wines produced with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes and are known for their remarkable elegance and finesse.

In its century long history, the Winery has maintained its authentic roots as a family-owned company with deep ties to the Trento region. It is led by the 3rd generation of the Lunelli family, proud descendants of Bruno Lunelli, who in 1952 purchased the estate from its founder, Giulio Ferrari. Every generation since has upheld Giulio Ferrari's uncompromising search for excellence in each step of the production process. The winery is today a mountain winemaking and sustainable agriculture advocate.

Ferrari has long been the ultimate toast of Italy providing the perfect accompaniment in most significant moments in statesmanship, culture, artistry, fashion and sport. No stranger to red carpet events, Ferrari is a favorite of Hollywood stars, poured at galas such as the Emmys and the Oscars.
