60 Years history
It’s hard to say with precision in which years our ancestors came to own the first parcel of land cultivated with vineyards. We know for sure, though, that the firm was born with the union of our grandfathers’ families’ lands, with their marriage in the 1960’s. Their first activity was growing and selling grapes to other wine-producing companies.
It was Giuseppe, Mauro’s father, who first decided to start independent wine production and sale. The “Azienda Agricola Rei Giuseppe” was then born.At the beginning, it owned only about seven hectares of land. Thirty years later, during the 1990’s, the firm passed on to Mauro, who considerably increased the vineyards and began bottling wine.
He also changed the company’s name into Azienda Agricola Mauro Rei. In the year 2000 he achieves to build new wine-making facilities, on the top of a close by hill, where they are still today. Currently the company has about 32 hectares of vineyards and 50 of fields cultivated with wheat, barley, soybean, sunflower. Nowadays the firm owns about thirty hectares of vineyards and about fifty of wheat, barley, soy and sunflower fields. We succeed to produce about 200.000 litres of wine per year.
