Winery
Vermouth was produced for the first time in Turin in 1786, in the little shop belonging to Antonio Benedetto Carpano. The fantastic tradition of the real Italian aperitif springs from his brilliant idea of adding herbal essences and spices to wine and raising its strength to around 18% to assist conservation. Today, with almost a century and a half of history behind it, this tradition is renewing itself by attracting bartenders and lovers of fine drinking to the rediscovery of a unique and authentic taste. Casa Vinicola Luigi Calissano e Figli was founded in Alba in 1872. The winery, designed with the very latest criteria and with great business acumen, not only produced the classic wines of the Langhe Area and sparkling wines in the traditional way but also vermouth, the aromatized wine that was never absent from Piedmontese tables at the time.

Country: Italy

For several decades in the mid to late twentieth century, Italy's reputation for quality wines took a fairly serious blow. This was brought about partly due to lack of regulation in certain regions, and too much regulation in others. This led to several wineries in the beautiful and highly fertile region of Tuscany making the bold move to work outside of the law, which they saw as responsible for the drop in quality in Tuscan wines. They believed that they had the expertise and the generations of experience necessary with which to make truly excellent, world class wines, and set about doing just that. These 'Super Tuscans', as they came to be known, quickly inspired the rest of Italy to improve their produce, and now, Italian wine producers in the twenty-first century are widely recognised to be amongst the best in the world. Regulation and law began to change, and wine drinkers across the globe woke up to the outstanding wines coming out of Italy, which are continuing to improve and impress to this day.
