About the Vineyards

Cantina Fratelli Pardi was founded in 1919 by the three Pardi brothers, Alfredo, Francesco, and Alberto. The vineyard produced white and red varieties, including Sagrantino, the wine world’s rising star. In 1949, the family decided to focus on their textile business, and shut down the vineyard. In 2002, three grandnephews of the original brothers re-launched the vineyard to keep tradition alive.
