The Winery: Marenco
The history of this famous winery dates back to the early 1900s, when Michele Marenco dreamed of planting a vineyard in the heart of the Bagnario Valley, an area mostly suitable for winemaking. After the World War II, his son Giuseppe built his winery in the center of the village of Strevi; he was able to convey his passion to the his three daughters, who now manage the estate.
