Located in the heart of Sorbara, in Emilia Romagna, in the fertile province of Modena, the Paltrinieri winery is a family-run farm, engaged in the production of Lambrusco di Sorbara for three consecutive generations. The activity of the Paltrinieri Winery, in fact, began in the mid-20s of the last century, when Achille Paltrinieri, the town's esteemed and enterprising pharmaceutical chemist, built the first part of the cellar, which was then expanded and developed by his son Gianfranco.
Born exactly in 1926, the Paltrinieri Winery has always vinified exclusively the grapes harvested in its own vineyards, which currently extend over a total area that reaches fifteen hectares, arranged in a thin strip of land between the Secchia and Panaro rivers. .
Both between the rows and in the cellar, thanks to a combination that combines ancient wisdom and modern technologies, the necessary operations are always carried out scrupulously, within a context that respects the strictest regulations on environmental protection and guarantees. for consumer health.
Managed by Alberto Paltrinieri and his wife Barbara, who avail themselves of the invaluable help of the oenologists Attilio Pagli and Leonardo Conti and the agronomist Stefano Dini, the company is now run with extreme rigor and attention. The fundamental operations of the Sorbarese wine tradition are interpreted with care, but at the same time, the wines branded "Paltrinieri" want to be a cure-all for the mind and heart, and want to speak through unique emotions and sensations.
Of the wide range of labels produced by the winery, without wanting to omit any, we must undoubtedly mention the Lambrusco di Sorbara DOC “Radice”, the Spumante Lambrusco di Sorbara DOC “La Riserva”, and also “Eclisse”. All bottles, those that carry the name “Paltrinieri” superimposed, great expressions of a fantastic territory that is second to none when it comes to wine.
