THE BRAND

Our passion originates in the wait for harvesting, to produce wine and discover the fragrances it will develop. The search for a perfect balance between taste and colour led to the establishment of Cantina Velenosi in 1984. The entrepreneurs Ercole and Angela Velenosi have combined artisan tradition and cutting-edge technology, creatively interpreting the wine-making process and thus starting a company which grows continually, with Paolo Garbini joining in 2005, and which today spreads worldwide the scents and colours of the Piceno territory through its unique wines.
