The story of this winery speaks of vineyards and dreams, of a man and his love for the land, with one desire: to trace his own path.
In 2009, Francesco overturns and re-invests his whole life in an ambitious project: to open a cellar and make a wine that leaves its mark. Accompanied by his wife Adriana, Corte Canella was born.
In 2013, her daughter Gloria joins her: daughter of a dream that didn't belong to her, now she represents the future.
