THE EMILIA WINE GROUP
A MODERN VISION WITH DEEP LOCAL ROOTS
A vision not followed up by action remains a dream. Emilia Wine is a winemaking and cooperative development entity testifying to the importance of people and their sense of being part of a project. Prioritising the work of our partners is also a matter of a positive attitude to change and taking an active part in a flexible market increasingly focused on the pursuit of quality.
OUR HISTORYTHE EMILIA WINE COOPERATIVE WAS CREATED IN 2014 BY A UNION BETWEEN THREE HISTORIC REGGIO EMILIA WINERIES, THE ARCETO, CORREGGIO AND PRATO DI CORREGGIO WINERIES.
United by a shared passion for their homeland and a desire to conserve and pass on their traditions, the cooperative’s founders brought together more than 700 members managing around 1870 hectares of vineyards between the River Po and the Reggio Apennines. Once again in 2014, the historic Reggio winery Casali Viticultori, based in the Scandiano village of Pratissolo, also joined the cooperative.
Anyone travelling along motorway A1 cannot fail to notice the bridge designed by Spanish architect Calatrava in Reggio Emilia. The Emilia Wine logo is inspired by this bridge, a dynamic symbol of an area on the move, a unique and identity-generating construction. It was a choice which went beyond architecture, however, as the bridge also symbolises union, a fundamentally important value for those who joined forces in this project and chose to work side by side.
