Colonnara Cooperative was established in 1959 as an initiative of 19 farmers. The perfect micro-climate found in the hills of the Marche region encouraged the cultivation of Verdicchio vines, which over the centuries have become the pride of these lands. The company has now 110 members and, thanks to the use of innovative technology and environmentally-sustainable farming techniques, it has developed a range of products featuring high quality still and sparkling wines.
