Ferrari is a leading Italian winery specialized in the production of Traditional method sparkling wine, also called metodo Classico.
The company was founded in 1902 by Giulio Ferrari, heir of an affluent family native of the Trentino region in Northern Italy. After completing the studies of agronomy and learning the secrets of viticulture and enology from companies in France, Germany and Tunisia, he started experimenting with new varieties and innovative wine-making techniques at the family’s winery.
His ultimate goal was to create an Italian sparkling wine that could challenge the quality of Champagne, so he started selecting the best vintages of Ferrari, aging the wine in bottle for years.
In 1952, without any direct
descendant, Giulio Ferrari sold the winery to a notable local wine merchant, Bruno Lunelli, who in few years
doubled the production and boosted the company’s growth. Today Ferrari is part of the Lunelli Group, led by the third generation of the Lunelli family.
