Though Vittorio Graziano's family has always owned farmland and vines in the village of Castelvetro di Modena, his father made a living building and selling furniture. A "late bloomer" in regards to wine, Vittorio only started drinking at 18 to please his then girlfriend, who was a fan of the dry, sparkling reds of the area.


This visit with Vittorio Graziano took place in April, 2013.
