Cantine SpinelliOur roots are so deep, that it is hard to say since when we produce wine. For centuries, surely. Long ago in the past, we produced the wine for home consumption, a big house, with many generations and families that lived together. Today we produce 3 million and a half of bottles a year, but the love for the vine never changed. A real passion that has been cultivated and matured during generations and in the end brought to one result. It will be Vincenzo Spinelli the first one to face the challenge, in other words, the commercial enterprise: “We have the land and the vine: if we can make the good wine for us, why can’t we make it also for the others?”. In the beginning of the seventies the consumption still has a common character. It is sold in the wholesale, but for Vincenzo the quality is always in his mind. He will have to wait about ten years, when the sons Carlo and Adriano will work full time in the company to give a crucial impulse to his project. The production capacity increases and, with great care, they start to control all the production stages, starting from the selection of the grapes, to the vinification and to the bottling. The quality is, now, the rallying cry. Therefore, the commercial strategies change and are refined, and so is the development of the sales network. In the past century, the last big leap happens with an expansion of the company in 1992, that represents the crowning achievement of a work. With the new and wide production rooms and with advanced machines and equipment, Vincenzo Spinelli finally completes the project, for which he spent a life for: a company able to combine high quality with high production volume.

Vini La Quercia - Società Agricola, Azienda AgricolaThe farm is run by four friends who became colleagues by chance in the late 80s. Elisabetta started her career in the administration department of a big winery where Antonio and Luca were already engaged as, respectively, oenologist and sales manager. A few years later Fabio was hired as cellar man in the same company. They worked together until 2000, when they decided to take the big step and took over a small winery called La Quercia, with whose owner they had already cooperated as consultants. La Quercia is a small winery stretching for about 12 hectares in vineyards and 3 in olive tree groves. It also has oenological plants for 400 square meters, with a productive capacity of around 4000 hl of wine. The activity of the company is eager to respect nature and environment in order to attain good and healthy products. During cultivation and processing, treatments are decreased to the minimum in order to let you find a reflection of the place of origin and its peculiarities in your glass. Cultivation and processing are based on high quality and the small details able to give relevance to the vine variety, the land where it grew up and the atmospheric phenomena that characterised the year. Quercia means Oak tree which beyond being a beautiful and majestic tree is also a symbol for its strength and genuineness. It took a little sacrifice to the four partners to set in such a crowded and keen market, but in the end constant work and commitment paid back: the first awards came as soon as they presented their first production at the most important Italian wine fair, Vinitaly, then La Quercia started to have its wines and oil listed in the main food & beverage guides and in the best Italian restaurants and shops menu. From 2005 La Quercia hit the international market: USA, middle and northern Europe, Japan, China and lately Canada (not to speak of a very challenging project about a chain of restaurants branded “La Quercia”).
