Vinicola Sannazaro

About Us / History

The origin of Vinicola San Nazaro dates back to the first half of the last century.


  • 1920
    The family Denti, which owned vineyards in the countryside of Reggio Emilia, used to produce wine for the family and sell the surplus on the local market. Then, they started to transport their wine barrels on wagons to the railway station in Reggio Emilia and from there to Milan.

  • 1947
    The brothers Roberto and Artemio guessed that the production and trade of wine had prospects of success. So, in the second half of the last century, they bought a winery in Rubiera, in the province of Reggio Emilia, to produce wine from local grapes and then sell it wholesale to companies in Emilia-Romagna and Lombardy.

  • 1958
    When even the Rubiera winery became insufficient for their ongoing wine production, the two brothers moved to Pegognaga, in the province of Mantua, into an already existing large winery that had prospects of expansion.

  • 1963
    A new factory was opened in Riva del Garda, in the province of Trento, in order to reach new market areas and produce different types of wine.

  • 1975
    The experience of the founders, especially Roberto, was then followed by the second generation, Giuseppe and Giuseppina, who introduced new production and quality control technologies into their traditional winery, which led Vinicola San Nazaro to become a leader in the production of wines, grape musts and concentrated grape musts.

  • 2010
    The company has invested in research, technology and human resources over the years, and now it is selling high quality products all over the world. This success results from the founder’s experience, the innovation process carried through by his children and the engagement of the new generation that is now running the company.
