About the wine maker
The legend goes that in 1959, Frank Sinatra walked out of a restaurant in the States because it didn’t serve Bolla Soave. An endorsement indeed from the head of the Rat Pack and one that goes to show that Bolla has a long-standing reputation for fine quality wines and pioneering winemaking.
It all started with Soave in 1883 when Abele Bolla opened his own restaurant and decided to serve wines that he had produced himself. The wine, a Soave, was immediately recognised as being true to the land, a wine that captured the essence of the Veneto region. His hobby turned into a family obsession which is carried on today by Bolla’s winemaker Christian Scrinzi.
Bolla’s Amarone della Valpolicella has also been well known for a while; Bolla were the first company to bottle and widely market an Amarone.
