Ours is a family property that has grown from the union of wine with hospitality. Umberto Salvioni, who had studied agriculture, chose to make wine so that he could offer it to his friends. His son Giulio decided to extend the range of friendship, creating a winery that could produce a limited number of bottles of absolute excellence. The first Cerbaiola Brunello was the fruit of the 1985 harvest, to be followed by other remarkable vintages that carried the name of Montalcino and the passion of the Salvionis far further afield. Following his degree in Agriculture, Giulio’s son David joined the family concern to help with vine husbandry and winemaking. More recently, his sister Alessia has completed the team, working alongside her father on marketing, sales and administration.
