Listed below are the Producers we list wines for. We believe we've got a superb selection including some of the smaller, 'boutique', family owned/run wineries.
In our opinion they all have one thing in common: produce fantastic, top quality wines.
- Italy Piemonte
In 1891 Giovanni Cossetti began a business that would soon prove prosperous, changing the family farm into a winery. As a land of excellent wines, full of history and well recognised by end of the nineteenth century, Monferrato was an excellent wine-growing area from which the family, with its deep rooted ties to the area, established its philosophy of quality.
It was Clemente, son of the founder, who would begin to make his wines known throughout Italy and abroad in the 1920s. Sons Giovanni and Mario in the following decades consolidated the business in all its aspects, from vineyard and cellar to marketing.
It is now the family`s fourth generation who enthusiastically continue a history toward the future, beginning with the right balance of tradition and innovation, attention to developments in the market and above all in the tastes of those who love fine wine and its most distinguished terroirs.
- Italy Piemonte
Azienda Giribaldi Mario was founded at the beginning of the 20th century and is now being managed by a third generation of the family. The winery today produces a wide range of wines with the same passion as the previous generations.

The farm expanded further under the guidance of Riccardo Bettarini who took it over from his uncle Othello after leaving his manufacturing business to dedicate himself entirely to farming.
