A BRAND, A LONG ADVENTURE OF DREAMS AND OF PASSION

Umberto Cesari
Umberto Cesari

This is a challenge that Umberto Cesari eagerly took up in the 1960s, with 20 hectares of vineyards right in the very heart of Emilia Romagna. Over the years, he was able to add other vineyards, different grape varieties, and unprecedented, exceptional new wines.  Over all those years, though, one thing remains unchanged: his passion for wine.

VINEYARDS AND VINE-ROWS

680 kilometres of mesmerizing green waves

The hillslope vineyards on the border between Emilia and Romagna are a truly providential spot for growing this area’s native grapes, such as Sangiovese, Albana, Pignoletto, and Trebbiano, as well as a few international varieties, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot.
The vineyards spread out in all directions, but the focus has always remained on the meticulous care given to each:  every hectare of vineyard is cultivated as if it were the only one.

THE PROPERTY

Six separate estates, 175 hectares of vineyards, 18,000 square metres of winecellars and main offices, completely re-structured.

The six estates– Ca’ Grande, Liano, Laurento, Tauleto, Casetta, and Parolino–each boast individual qualities and personalities, comprising the winery’s true treasure.  Our main winery buildings rise above the hills, a complex fully combining innovation and tradition, offering the guest a tasting salon and wine shop.  This is the ideal spot to step into the world of Umberto Cesari and feel at home.
