A story that began in 1796

The origin of the cellar is rooted in the ancient history of the della Gherardesca family. Since the mid-nineties, Federico Zileri Dal Verme has strived to produce wines that represent the highest expression of Bolgheri’s terroir in terms of complexity, elegance and longevity. Situated at the heart of Bolgheri, the two-storied cellar stands as a testament to time.

On the first floor, located at the level of the main road, you will find the wine shop, where you can taste and buy the estate's products and learn about its ancient history. On the same floor is the area of vinification and warehousing, where the final aging of our wine takes place.

The subterranean floor boasts a temperature-regulated vinification section with steel tanks and a dedicated space where wine undergoes aging in wooden containers, including barriques, tonneaux, and oak tanks.
