The origins of Cantine Giorgi date back to 1875. The first generation of the Giorgi family produced wine for the families of neighboring countries, according to the customs of the time, but even then went so far as to sell their wine outside their own borders. .
The Giorgi family have always strongly focused on the entire production chain: from grapes to bottles, from the very beginning laying the foundations for their great project of creating a wine company of primary importance. This project became a reality already in 1970, when the brothers Gianfranco and Antonio built a second cellar, modern and technologically very advanced, in Canneto Pavese. One winemaker and the other marketing man, they managed to build an image of the company and the quality of the wines produced that has remained indelible over time.
In the 1980s the winery finally reached national consecration and today we can say that Cantina Giorgi represents Oltrepò Pavese in Italy and in the world. All this was possible above all thanks to a foundation that is always present in its history: the family at the heart of the business. Antonio, the father, with his long experience coordinates and supervises all business operations assisted by his children: Fabiano directs the company dealing with sales and marketing and coordinating the winemakers from production to bottling.
