About Banfi

Banfi was founded in 1978 thanks to the will of the Italian-American
brothers, John and Harry Mariani. From the beginning, the goal of the
two brothers was to create a state-of-the-art winery combined with the
most advanced science in the vineyards for the production of premium
wines. Together with the Mariani family, Ezio Rivella, one of Italy’s
foremost enologists, who understood that due to the richness of the
soils and the privileged microclimatic position, the property would have
great capacity of development. In those years, the brothers, John and
Harry, also purchased an historic winery in Piedmont specialized in the
production of sparkling wines.
