Owner of an extensive estate in Rocca de’Giorgi for many centuries, our family has long played an active role in enhancing the quality of the wines of the Valle Scuropasso, by using the best of state-of-the-art technology. In so doing, we have help enhance the reputation of the wines of the Oltrepo Pavese, the area to the south of Pavia. Carlo Giorgi di Vistarino introduced the Pinot Nero grape to the Oltrepo Pavese between the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century, going on to win awards in both London and Paris for the sparkling wines thus produced. Covering 826 hectares, mostly in the district of Rocca de’Giorgi, the Giorgi di Vistarino estate has remained faithful to the farming traditions and to the style of the great estates of the nineteenth century. While the 180 hectares of vines — all listed in the official Albo della DOC Oltrepo Pavese — constitute the heart of our family’s work, we also have 200 hectares of woodland, 120 hectares of arable land, and 100 hectares destinated to become forestland. Our family’s dedication to the land and its values has led to the estate’s conserving both its landscape and animal life, this just seventy kilometers ‘ 40 miles — from Milan. His work was taken further by Ottaviano and Carlo, and is today in the hands of Ottavia Giorgi di Vistarino. The objective remains the same: to create elegant, authentic wines that express their terroir.
