Cantina Zaccagnini

Cantina Zaccagnini

Abruzzo, Italy
Cantina Zaccagnini was founded in 1978 with the name “Fattoria Zaccagnini”. Located in the core of the population centre of Bolognano, it started as a family-run business and then grew quickly while aiming at “total quality from the bunch of grapes to the glass”.

A distinctive feature of Zaccagnini since its origins is its “wine and art” combination. Works that are presented at Uvarte, an annual art event the winery hosts each November, become the main element of the labels of special wines for collectors and offer new chances show the unbreakable connection between art and wine.
