In 1964 Albrando Dei came across the land of Bossona, a known grape growing enthusiast Abrando quickly recognised that Bossona was predestined to produce great red wines, and promptly purchased the land and planted vineyards.
In the first years, the harvested grapes were sold. However, considering the quality of the grapes picked, the family soon decided to embark upon the path of their own wine-making tradition and in 1985 -an exceptional vintage year -they decided to produce the first bottle of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Dei, renting an old winery in the historic town centre.
In 1989, the family built its own winery, beside Villa Martiena, in the heart of the vineyards.
