Casa Girelli SpA

History, Tradition and Internationally Acclaimed Casa Girelli

Trento is the capital of the city Trentino, located in the Adige River valley in Trentino- Alto Adige/Sudtirol, Italy.

In the 16th Century the city was the location of the Council of Trent, one of the Roman Catholic Church’s most important ecumenical councils and has been described as the embodiment of counter reformation.

Casa Girelli was founded in the 19th century in the historic town of Trento is a company that has turned winemaking into an art and has become the countries’ fourth largest winery.

The history

It all began when Giovanni Girelli purchased a small vineyard in the village of Borghetto in the south of Trentino which became a successful winery, but unfortunately during the Second World War the cellar was completely destroyed.

Once the war was over Giovanni and his son Renato began again building a large and modern winery in Trento which became the Casa Girelli’s first headquarters.

In 1959 Renato took over from his father and began a subsidiary company in Berlin as the company was already concentrating on exporting to other countries.

Exporting grew enormously and today 95% of their production goes to exporting; Europe, U.S.A and South East Asia.

Today the Girelli family, including Renato’s children still plays very important roles in the company and Casa Girelli imports to over forty countries around the world with their wine portfolio growing.

Wines from Casa Girelli SpA

The Vineyards

Their products include ingredients from other regions in Italy; Tuscany, Piemonte, Veneto, the Abruzzi, Puglia and Sicily.

Constant research and the delicate production process have led the company to obtain numerous awards for their production and in 2005 Casa Girelli was acquired by Cantina La Vis situated in Trentino.

Their belief is to focus on the land, the people who work the land and that will produce good quality wines.

Together Casa Girelli and La Vis have created “Ethica” which is a cluster of eight small wineries acting as one united production in terms of sales and production and in doing so maintain the individuality of each winery involved in the process of producing their artistic wines.

The mission of Casa Girelli is to infuse the knowledge of winemaking techniques alongside the modern technology and the latest innovations in order to produce quality products with a high standard.

Qualified experts carry out the harvesting, winemaking and bottling of their products and each stage is meticulously monitored, beginning in the vineyard with the grape selection so that each bottle represents its origin.

The Trento cellar has the capacity to hold 7.5 million litres in various sized tanks monitored by temperature controls ensuring optimum wine storing conditions.

The Barriques are also there to ensure perfect ageing of the wines and they have over 2000 of them.

A wine laboratory is fully equipped with up to date technology and the wine is bottled using cold sterile filtration techniques and for those of us who have no idea what this means; well it is a long process that ensures a good quality and hygienic product in the outcome.

I won’t go further into it as talking about the end product is far better than the technical side, but it is important to know that each bottle is created with precision and the methods that are used to take time and obviously experience to make what we so enjoy!

Now that we understand the process and precision that goes into production, let us talk about the delectable wines that they have to offer.

The Wines

Casa Girelli has nine different labels; Antario, Decanal, Fontella, La Borgata, La Mura Bio, La Mura, Villalta, Virtuoso and Canaletto.

They also have their private label which is for export by distributors and retailers.

The Canaletto label is a unique wine with each bottle telling a very different story about the region it hales from.

It is considered to be the “Autentico Italiano” taking the wine lover on a journey through some of Italy’s most incredible wine regions.

This range of wine has a selection of Pinot Noir, Rose and Chianti along with many more to enjoy.

Antario includes Gavi, which is made from 100% Cortese grapes from the Piemonte (piedmont) region of Italy and the bottle with its golden green appearance has the reminiscent of Almonds.

Barbera D’Asti is a ruby red wine with a raspberry bouquet and is aged in the traditional botti.

It has black cherry flavours and is harvested in the beginning of October.

Barolo is a common name for the wine in Italy from specific regions as this is the name of the grape used.

It is a deep ruby red wine with a bouquet of violet, spices and pepper.

It is aged for 6 months in the stainless steel tanks and then 30 months in the traditional Slavonian oak barrels.

Fontella is the classic range with grapes selected from vineyards in Lazio, Umbria, Puglia and Tuscany with Chianti being one of their choices.

Visit Casa Girelli

A great selection with too many to talk about, but it is a good idea to visit the historic town and do the taste tests at your leisure.
