Featured Wednesday Wine Flight: Cesconi Family Winemakers
Perched high above Trento on banks of the Adige River is the hill of Pressano. In these rugged Alpine surroundings, the Cesconi family tends their vineyards planted to both red and white grapes. The current proprietors can trace their family roots back to the 17th century when their great-grandfather, then a citizen of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, would load his oxen with wine to sell to the summer court of the Habsburgs in Innsbruck. After the fall of the eastern dynasty, the Cesconi family would sell most of its productions to inns and taverns of Trento. Building on more than 2 centuries of cultivating and producing wine in Trentino, the four Cesconi brothers - Lorenzo, Roberto, Alexander and Franco - as well as their father Paul, continue the family tradition.
Come on in and let us introduce you to Cesconi brother Roberto to celebrate the wine from this incredible family.
