The Cheese Shop is hopping with excitement to have a return tasting of Bacchus Import’s Agricola Cottini and Tenuta La Falcona, and to include one of the Cottini family members as well! Agricola Cottini is nestled in the hills of Valgatara where the family applies their experience and passion to produce limited quantities of traditional Valpolicella wines. Tenuta La Falcona, or the “Falcon Estate”, extends over the glacial hills between Valeggio sul Mincio and Lake Garda. This estate was purchased by the Cottini family and has been returned to its antique splendor through the unification of the original parcels of land and the gradual restoration of the vineyards.
Sergio Cottini and his children, Giorgio, Laura, Michele and Bruno, continue the family legacy to produce an authentic product of the highest possible quality. The winemaking tradition has been passed down from generation to generation and the family members are personally involved in each phase of the process from grape cultivation to wine production. The family holds true to the artisan style both in the vineyards and the wine cellar.
Bruno Cottini is the youngest of this generation of the Cottini Family. He grew up playing in the vineyards with his fellow siblings and has a deep passion for all aspects of winemaking. Bruno studied Agrotechnics and joined the family business full time after earning his degree. He has broad level of experience that includes viticulture, winemaking, marketing and international business relations.
