Barone Pizzini

The Pizzini family arrived in Franciacorta in the 1870s.  Since then, the estates  have passed through many generations of the same family, until in the 1990s a group of local wine entrepreneurs, bought the estate and started to invest in the business putting people, and the environment first. Organic techniques followed and soon they expanded their horizons by investing and buying new properties in the Maremma Toscana area and in the Marche, Castelli di Jesi. With a full range of wines from three important wine regions of Italy, Barone Pizzini are a dynamic, quality driven group whose wines are enjoying increasing recognition. We are very pleased to be working with more of their wines in the UK this year.
