Nicola Solenghi

Year of Establishment



Emilia Romagna

The Solenghi winery was founded in 1983 by Gaetano. Demotivated by office life, he decided to devote himself to working on a small vineyard, one hectare in all, owned by his paternal aunt Maria Teresa. From the beginning, Gaetano was joined by Celsino, an old farmer who managed the vineyard before him. From him, Gaetano learned a “wealth of peasant knowledge” and respect for nature, which today is referred to as environmental sustainability. These practices were a prerogative of work right from the beginning. A choice that is now almost required but then meant going against the tide.
Gaetano courageously rejected the dominant economic model at that time based on maximum yields, giving up tillage, fertilization and the use of chemistry. The quantity did not matter. In the early 1990’s, he expanded the vineyard, bringing it to approximately 2.5 hectares they have today. The goal has always been focused on the quality of the grapes grown, not quantity.
