Growing grapes and crafting high quality wines have always been our family tradition. We were born and raised in the hills that link Grinzane Cavour to Serralunga d’Alba, in the heart of Langhe, part of the Unesco Heritage. Careful work in the vineyard, commitment in the winery, respect for the environment: a passion for wine that has been handed down for decades, in Langhe, where the best plots are selected for the production of Barolo. This history talks about the territory, in full respect of the tradition. 1957 : Giacomo Grimaldi starts selling grapes and in the 60s (his son) Giovanni Grimaldi begins to produce wine and sell it in bulk. Giovanni builds our pillars: he is very careful about winegrowing, in full respect of the vineyard and wine. He bottles the wines in the best vintages creating an important library stock and values the vineyards and grapes. Questing for quality from the vineyard to the bottle is already a key aspect of Giovanni’s philosophy while he has been the beating heart of the business for many years. In the following decades, our history is marked by the work in the vineyard and the careful winemaking which both enhance the quality of the grapes. These remain two key aspects and are still crucial in our approach to the vine today. 1990 : A new chapter begins: Bruna Grimaldi and her husband Franco Fiorino bring enthusiasm and new competences to the winery. They buy selected plots in order to produce wines only from their own vineyards. A new winery is built. The work is improved and our wines are proposed to new markets. Passionate and knowledgeable, Franco is deeply committed to the vineyard management and winemaking. He is a very careful and precise oenologist and is the driving force in the company. He loves nature, the mountains and the hills of Langhe. In his opinion, Langhe is all about Nebbiolo and Barbera. Bruna has been cultivating her passion for wines for years. Today, she manages the family business with her husband Franco. She is oenologist and a member of “Donne del Vino” Association. She would only replace a glass of Barolo with a glass of Champagne, and nothing else. She loves smiling. Her wines communicate her joy and conviviality. She is attentive with people and a great ambassador of our territory. Today : Since 2013, Simone and Martina, son and daughter of Bruna and Franco, bring their passion and enthusiasm to the family business. In the recent years, their parents’ experience has combined with the different studies of Simone and Martina while our brand, Bruna Grimaldi, becomes more recognized, thanks to the quality of the wines. A family passion, a knowledge handed down to generations and improved over the years that put the vineyards and the meticulous work at the heart of the business
