Al Rocol Winery, a Great Passion for Wines
Al Rocol is a family run business that revolves around wines with a cellar and an agritourismo. The winery is located in the Franciacorta wine region. From the beginning of the 20th century, the property has been run by Gina Castellini and her brother Isaac. In 1968, the company was solely on her until 1992, when her son Giovanni Vimercati took over, deciding to devote himself full-time to his passion of viticulture. Currently the modern winery is managed by the latest generation of the Castellini family, Gianluigi and his sister Francesca who have been able to bring a remarkable prestige to the winery, reaching important goals.
