Dive into a Story of a Lawyer-Turned-Winemaker
After leaving the law profession, Enrico Piantato decided to follow his winemaking dreams and ancestors’ footsteps. He established Laficaia in 2013, along with an enotourism resort attached to the winery. His grandfather, Clemente Guasti, was also a winemaker who inspired him into the world of wines. He expanded the winery operations by purchasing more vineyards in Casalotto di Mombarruzo and incorporated advanced wine production techniques into the cellar. He doesn’t limit the production to grapes but also figs and olives.
