The Luigi Zanini wine growing history begins in the distant year 1964. His grat interest in discovering new wine growers and wine producer made him go travels trough Italy and France, regions with a heavy wine growing tradition. After setting up the Aristocracy of Italian Wines in Switzerland, in 1985 he had the idea of founding the Vinattieri Ticinesi.
The Vinattieri Ticinesi administers some 47 hectares (129 acres) of wine growing territory. In 1995, a garden dedicated to the grape vine was established, today harbouring more than 400 different types of vines. Luigi Zanini made his first wine in 1971. Then he stopped and prepared himself for resuming his wine growing activities in 1985. With his 20 years of specialized experience in wine growing and wine pressing, he then began the story of the Vinattieri together with his son Luigi Jr. Results showed soon to their great satisfaction.
