Letrari is a family that has its roots in the very history of Trentino wine. Already active in 1647 in Borghetto d'Avio, on the banks of river Adige, first as river rafters, then traders and then as agricultural innovators, they find their culmination with Leonello Letrari. Immediately on the wine scene of good drinking, it is thanks to him that in the immediate post-war period the wines of the Dolomites acquire character and prestige beyond the regional borders. It is always he who "creates" the first blends and in the 1960s he begins to develop fine sparkling wines. To then found in 1976 - together with his wife Maria Vittoria - the current family business.
