Tallarini, in the Heart of Green Bergamo
Immersed in green hills of Valcalepio, the Tallarini Winery is located in Bergamo province of Lombardy, Italy. The owner of the winery has developed a collaborative relationship with landowners of the Bergamo region, and today the winery boasts 20 hectares of vineyards.
Tallarini Winery, Vines and Bees in Harmony
The story of Tallarini began in 1983 when Vincenzo bought Il Fontanile, a beautiful historic village with laced with ancient buildings. Later in 1985, he started the winemaking business by cultivating grapes, along with beekeeping. After winning a couple of awards for his wines, he expanded the business and started the construction of a cellar in Bergamo.
Taste Delicious Homemade Honey
With great attention towards nature, Vincenzo cultivates two varieties of grapes, including top-class Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon within the Lombardy DOC and DOCG regions. He uses both traditional and modern methods of vine cultivation to produce high-quality wines, such as red, white and sparkling wines, along with delicious dessert and rose wines under Valcalepio DOC status. Besides wines, he breeds more than 600 beehives, the prime activity of the winery throughout the 80s, and produces rich-quality honey. A solid and modernized cellar, the heart and soul of Tallarini, is divided into three rooms, each for processing, preservation, and wine tasting. The red wines are stored in wooden barrels for effective aging and refinement while for white wines, the estate has large steel tanks. Every year, the Tallarini Winery produces about 240,000 bottles of wines and beautifully positions them along the walls of the cellar.
