The history of Zerbina as a wine-producing estate began in 1966 when Vincenzo Geminiani, after purchasing the farm which already bore this name, decided to plant the first vineyards and estate-bottle his own production. The wines immediately received a certain recognition renown, though the quality standards which were applied were clearly those of that period of time.
The true turning point for the quality of the wines, however, arrived in 1987 when Cristina Geminiani, the granddaughter of Vincenzo and the current owner of the estate and director of its viticultural and enological activities, decided – with her brother Vincenzo – to take charge of operations and focus her attention on achieving major improvement of, and an increased public recognition for, the wines made from Sangiovese and Albana grapes.
Today the winery cultivates traditional grapes of Emilia Romagna including Sangiovese (accounts for 80% of the red grapes planted in the vineyard), Albana and a small quantity of Cabernet.
Zerbina adopted traditional approach of new vineyards planted in a classic bush-vine training system with high vine densities and at the same time using innovative approach with different clones of Sangiovese and the technique of “noble rot” for the desert wine.
