Umberto Cesari: The origin of everything, a dream…

The Cesari household has always been passionate about wine: Umberto’s father, Ilario, ran one of the most historic Osterias in Bologna. However, Umberto was not satisfied with following in his father’s footsteps.

He preferred to pursue a dream: to not just sell great wine, but create it. Founder, pioneer, ambassador. In the early ’60s, Umberto Cesari purchased a 20-hectare vineyard on the hills of Castel San Pietro, founded the company which bears his name, and embarked on the adventure of a lifetime: to turn Sangiovese into a great wine, typical of its own area, but loved worldwide. Umberto Cesari is among the first to focus on this grape variety and popularise it at an international level.
