ABOUT US

  • At The Winefathers
  • we look for
  • and
  • promote
  • Italian artisanal winemakers
  • whose strong passion for quality constitutes their only philosophy.
  • From our perspective,
  • this should be the norm, not a luxury.
  • To offer anybody the opportunity to become a relative of an Italian winemaker:
  • that is what The Winefathers is about.
  • The Winefathers was conceived and launched in 2014 to satisfy the ever growing need
  • of tasting good quality, natural wines, made with passion, tenacity and respect for the land.
  • While developing our project,
  • we met winemakers who are deeply passionate about what they do
  • and we learnt to appreciate their own methods of "making wine".
  • We realized that the need underlying the project went beyond our expectations,
  • encompassing the urgency to build relationships, to know each other in our diversity and trust others.
  • So we realized that this was what we wanted to create.
  • No,
  • we are not a company, based on hierarchies and fixed procedures.
  • We are first of all friends who have known each other for many years:
  • a husband with his wife, their wedding witness with his sister-in-law,
  • a former colleague and a former five-a-side football teammate.
  • We are a family, rather than a company,
  • who gathered around this project and firmly believed in it.
  • We come from a borderland named Friuli,
  • the door of Italy to the East, whose people are always in tension between their inner and outer dimension,
  • between a profound sense of belonging and a feeling of exclusion.
  • This "borderland spirit" must be the reason why we want to open ourselves to the world through our winemakers' wines, which are shipped to all continents.
  • But there is more to it as we learn to rediscover our land, the farmers' origins of our parents, the pleasure of hopping on a bike,
  • taking a dirt road and finding ourselves suddenly immersed in the vineyards, ravished by the unmistakable fragrance of maturing grapes.
