More about Ferrowine:
The adventure of the Ferro family began in 1920 as a tavern with a shop and then developed as a cellar. In those years, in fact, Giovanni Ferro bought grapes in the neighboring production areas and vinified them. A small business that supplied taverns, families and customers.
Shortly thereafter, the first home distributions also started, which took place with a simple cart pulled by a horse.In the following years, his son Gastone transformed the winery business into a commercial company. He immediately joined wine with drinks, specializing in the trade of grappa, vermouth, chinati, French liqueurs and Marsala which were among the most popular products at the time.
In 1990 his sons, Michela and Giovanni, took over the company and through expansions and acquisitions extended the commercial boundaries to the Montello and Pedemontana area. A more organized sales network and a new strategy allowed a wider and more widespread distribution.
