Principiano Giuseppe company history has long-standing roots and a strictly family tradition, which has been intertwined for many years with the rows and vines.
The vineyards have been working for four generations now, since the great-grandfather Giuseppe in the early twentieth century began planting and working the first vines. They were difficult years characterized by two world conflicts, but Giuseppe, flanked by his son Francesco, following the destruction caused by the wars, through great sacrifices, tenacity and stubbornness, continued the cultivation of the vines.
Francesco in turn transmitted his great passion to his son Giuseppe, who with commitment and dedication managed to expand the boundaries of the company by buying new land, increasing production and improving the quality of the grapes and wines.
Currently the family company is run by Giuseppe Principiano with his wife Lucia and their son Francesco, that with their experience, in respect of the precious teachings handed down from their ancestors, combined with modern techniques, play with careful care every phase of the production cycle that is followed in the vineyards, up to the work in the cellar.
