Adriatic is thrilled to announce that we will be importing and distributing an extensive range of Marchesi Antinori wines within South Africa.
The Antinori family has been making wines for more than 600 years, yet their philosophy – that of “respect for tradition and the land” – has remained constant throughout the generations.
Of course, some things have changed… Over the years, the family’s desire to discover, and experiment with, new varieties has led them to expand their territory, and today you can find their wine estates across Tuscany and Umbria as well in Piedmont, Puglia and Franciacorta, Lombardy.
More unusual, though, is that they also have estates in the US (Napa Valley, California and Columbia Valley, Washington State), Chile, Hungary, Malta and Romania. (We have to ask… South Africa next?)
Roberto Reffo explains Adriatic’s decision to include the Antinori wines in its line-up: “We are a family-run business that has been around since 1970. Our founder, Renzo Reffo, began the Adriatic journey through ship handling and today we have evolved into an importation and distribution company that proudly represents some of Italy’s top producers of food items and catering equipment. The Antinori family has been making wine for 26 generations and is one of the world’s finest wine producers. We believe that their ethos runs parallel to ours and are proud to have them join our list of suppliers. We hope that South African wine drinkers will be as excited as we are with the quality and diversity of the renowned Antinori wine selection.”
