Garuti is a family owned business and was founded in 1920. The Azienda Agricola Garuti winery is based in the heart of the countryside around Sorbara in a fertile area where the Panaro and Secchia rivers run so close to each other they almost touch. Rich in potassium, the alluvial terrain with its loose, sandy, permeable structure is ideal for growing Sorbara lambrusco grapes. For generations, the estate has raised the prized Sorbara grape to produce a lambrusco of the highest quality, but with the utmost respect for wine making tradition. The Garuti family has been cultivating the Marandello, Fondo Scaletta, Ca ‘Bianca, and Uccelliera vineyards since the twenties, with a total area of 30 hectares.
In the 1920s, Dante Garuti began growing grapes and making wine using the perfect combination of quality, tradition and technology. Their wine is produced with the most modern production techniques, but without affecting the authenticity of the finished product. Garuti quality has earned the company many national awards, such as the Gold Medal – Gold Wreath at the Matilde di Canossa Sparkling Wine Competition, the Silver Medal of the Mayor’s Competition, and a Medal at the Doujà D’or D’Asti.
Appreciating the return of sediment wines, the Garuti winery started to produce a Lambrusco which is fermented in the bottle according to an ancestral method which was previously used until the seventies and eighties of the past century. The result is an exciting journey to be enjoyed sip by sip.
