At the beginning of the 1920s, Valtellina found itself in a context of poverty and emigration. A strong desire to emerge pushed Aldo Rainoldi to give life to his business as a wine merchant in 1925.
In the second half of the 1950s, his son Giuseppe decided to join him. The qualitative growth began with the purchase of grapes instead of wine and when the sale in bottles started replacing that in chestnut barrels. This phase coincides with the expansion of the markets: not only Lombardy and Switzerland, but also the United States, Japan, Northern Europe, also thanks to a wider and differentiated wine range.
At the end of the Nineties, after completing his studies in viticulture and oenology, Aldo Rainoldi, Giuseppe’s grandson, joined the company in the sign of family continuity. The goal is to combine qualitative growth with respect for the environment, leading the company towards the next generational transition.
