Regions Trentino-Alto Published on 18 November 2016

Established more than a century ago in Italy’s northern region of Trentino, Ferrari has earned worldwide recognition as the premier producer of luxury sparkling wines. Comparable to the nest Champagnes in terms of winemaking technique and structure, Ferrari wines are proudly Italian in craftsmanship and by reputation.


Ferrari was founded in 1902 by Giulio Ferrari. After studying in France, Giulio returned to his native region of Trentino with a conviction that the terroir and climate were ideal for producing world-class sparkling wines. Giulio Ferrari was the rst viticulturist to plant Chardonnay vines in Italy, and by 1906 his pioneering vision had already borne fruit with numerous international awards. Ferrari was well on its way to producing what would rapidly become the most loved sparkling wine of Italy.

Remarkably, Ferrari has maintained its authen- tic roots as a family-owned company with deep ties to the Trento region. The winery is led by the third generation of the Lunelli family, proud descendants of Bruno Lunelli, who purchased the estate from Giulio Ferrari in 1952.

Every generation since has upheld Giulio Ferrari’s uncompromising search for excel- lence in each step of the production process – elevating Metodo Classico as a production method par excellence – and remaining true to Trentino’s unique identity. The Lunelli family reinforces these values, balancing innovation with a deep respect of tradition.

The winery is a passionate advocate of mountain winema- king and sustainable agriculture, practiced in its estate vineyards and reinforced by long-standing grower relationships. Ferrari’s team of eight oenolo- gists and six agrono-mists meticulously supervises the vineyards, and provides continuing technical support to the families under exclusive contract to grow grapes for Ferrari.

Ferrari has long been the favoured toast of Italy. The Trentodoc wines provide the perfect accompaniment to the most signi cant moments in statesmanship, culture, artistry, fashion and athletic achievement. Ferrari is proudly served at the Quirinale, home of the President of the Italian Republic, and was selected as the of cial toast to the 150th Anni- versary of Italian uni cation as well as the Italian Pavilion at Expo Milano 2015. No stranger to red carpet events, Ferrari is a favorite of Hollywood stars, poured at galas such as the Emmys, the Oscars and the Venice Film Festival.

As a symbol of the Italian Art of Living, Ferrari has become the quintessential toast at Italy’s most signi cant lifestyle events, in particular in the elds of fashion and design. The Italian Art of Living celebrates the passion for beauty, taste, and elegance, and a zest for life that is
the very soul of the Ita- lian spirit. Ferrari is a founding member of the Altagamma Foun- dation, an organization whose members both embody and promote the most re ned pro- ducts from Italy in the elds of fashion, de- sign, food, wine and hospitality.
