Cantine Ceci, founded by Otello, host of the lower countryside of Emilia-Romagna, can combine the history of wine to its future.
It all began in 1938 in his restaurant, where the best tripe of the province was served and where Otello mingled Lambrusco that used to produce purchasing grapes from local farmers. His sons Giovanni and Bruno were still children, but they were already understanding the charm that arouse in them the crushing of grapes in the season of enthralling harvest. The food was so abandoned to kick off the adventure of Cantine Ceci.
It is a tradition that transforms and evolves in its continuity, and that made the brothers Ceci discover the love for grapes, for wine, and for those poetic and bubbling vats, inspiring their work and suggesting the objectives to be pursued. Now, the grandchildren of Otello are continuing this path: Alessandro, Maria Teresa, Maria Paola, Elisa and Chiara, they are now representing the new soul of the company and help provide a boost to what has been done previously, to build even more solid basis for those who come after them, they always talk through the territory and express what this land is able to give, without mystification, focusing on the great quality of what we offer on the wine market, not neglecting product innovation, both in terms of taste and aesthetics, arriving distributing sparkling wines and Otello Nerodilambrusco in a unique square bottle. The rapid expansion began in the 90s, with the birth of Lambrusco Terre Verdiane, with which this vine experienced a new youth and unexpected prestige.
All this, and the deep local roots, hold Cantine Ceci firmly linked to the territory and together allow their members not to be afraid to expand and indeed to work every day in the certainty of their own values and the fact that none of them would live by nowhere else than here.
