Venice - The Pigafetta family's La Rota winery enters Vini Nobili d'Italia.

Noble Wines of Italy www.vininobiliditalia.it has recently been called "the most exclusive wine club in Italy" by the international magazine Forbes.

Born from an idea of Baron Ivan Drogo Inglese , president of Assocastelli and Assopatrimonio , he is currently chaired by Vittorio Invernizzi, former patron of the beverage group Lurisia sold to the colossus Coca Cola.

The winery was founded in the 60s by the cavalier Antonio Pigafetta and his brother Luigi in Cinto Caomaggiore near Venice.

Today it is led by the brothers Michele and Sergio Pigafetta.

The vineyards cover a total of 40 hectares and the production is around 20 thousand bottles per year.

The Pigafetta are the descendants of that Antonio Pigafetta who lived in the 16th century who flanked the Portuguese navigator Ferdinando Magellano in his explorations until his death in the current Philippines.

The name of the company, the Rota, derives from the toponym of the land still cultivated with vines and once owned by the family of the Rota counts.

The Pigafetta have in their genes the instinct of exploration perhaps inherited from their famous ancestor. This is demonstrated by the fact that they were the first Italian wine producers to land in Ghana (where 70% of the population is Catholic). The capital Accra is a city of over 2 million inhabitants. Here a type of consumer (managerial and entrepreneurial class) has shown to appreciate Italian wine and there are always many Italian restaurants here.
