In the heart of Emilia-Romanga sits Ca' De' Medici, whose story parallels Lambrusco's evolution. The estate of Ca'De'
Medici, since its origin in 1911, has
been managed by the same family starting with founder Remigio Medici,
and has been passed down from father in son as a part of the inheritance. The
main focus of Ca' De' Medici is to continually invest in the
quality, thanks to the constant scientific research regarding he best
technologies of production and ensuring the selection of the very best
grapes in the territories where the Lambrusco vineyards reign.
The Ca' De’ Medici winery dates back to 1911 when it was founded by
Remigio Medici, at the age of 48 years old with his young sons. At the
beginning he owned an “osteria” in Reggio Emilia which also
commercialized bulk wine. The change from restaurant owner to winery
operations was gradual over time when his children were old enough to
contribute to the business. At that time, Remigio sold the “osteria”
and his land to acquire sufficient capital to develop a new winery. Following the success of Lambrusco "Val d'Enza", the winery expanded
its selections, offering in addition to several varieties of wine
Lambrusco , Malvasia and wines from Scandiano and Canossa hills.
