The family behind the winery
Graziella and Adriano Peri bought the palace, with the historical cellar and vineyards, in 1946.
Their son Mario, alongside his wife Maria, started feeling a strong passion for managing the winery and in 1972 decided to bottling the best selection of their wines, creating some labels that are still produced now by the Peri family.
From 2008 the 3d generation, Andrea and his wife Francesca.
