Founded in 1944 as an import company, in 1978 Claudio Tamborini bought vineyards to produce his own wines. Now Tamborini manages 27 hectares of vineyards in different location (Comano, Lamone, Gudo, Castelrotto, Neggio, Porza) and buy grapes from 70 winegrowers.
The wine assortment is widely diversified and divided into different wine lines; in addition to Mer-lot like the prestigious Comano and SanZeno Costamagna Riserva, we quote about the ESPE line; "experiences" line is the result of new winemaking techniques: ESPE N. 5 is a Merlot vinified in white according to the hyperoxidation method, ESPE N.6 is the “Witouth Merlot” wine and ESPE N.7 is Arinarnoa in purity.
Furthermore, Tamborini has begun the production of PiWi ("pilzwiderstandsfähig") wines, which come from grapes which require fewer treatments because they are more resistant to fungal dis-eases. This demonstrates a look to the future towards environmental sustainability.
The company has new projects "in cellar": new vines and new winemaking methods, which will lead to new wines always respectful to "terroir", an entity that goes beyond the land on which a vineyard lies, the natural, physical and chemical conditions; by terroir we mean the interaction be-tween multiple factors, which includes the winegrowers and consumers of the product, in other words the human value.
The wine shop has over 500 labels ranging from Tamborini wines, French and Spanish wines, great Italian wines, champagne, spirits and a selection of rare whiskies.
