Paolo Martinelli

owner

Born in Rome in the 50’s Paolo inherited the winery from his uncle when he had just started working in the film business in Rome. After a few years he was forced to stop commercial production but kept up maintenance and a small production of personal Teroldego. Today, together with his wife, Elisa, they carefully follow every phase of the rebirth of the winery.

Giulio Martinelli

​winemaker engineer

Born in Rome in 1988. After graduating from Brighton and doing an MBA in Madrid Giulio decided to move to Mezzocorona to become a builder! The restructuring of the winery was in full swing and who better than an engineer to transform the old buildings into a modern winery complex. Expertise and passion for winemaking was soon developed with the help of a Sommelier course and work experience in cellars in South Africa and New Zealand. Giulio and Victoria’s wedding in 2018 launched the winery as a great venue for parties.

Andrea Martinelli

winemaker

Born in Rome in 1986. Andrea graduated in biology in the UK and then moved to Australia for a master’s degree in agribusiness. In 2010 he moved to Mezzocorona and enrolled in the agricultural institute of San Michele to finally concentrate on wine. In the vineyard he discovered his true vocation and soon made friends with the other young winemakers of the Piana Rotaliana, their aim to relaunch Teroldego as one of Italy’s fine wines.

Erino and Michele Weber

farmers

The Weber family lived and worked in the farmstead for over fifty years. They welcomed the return of the young Martinellis with the wisdom and experience of an ancient peasant tradition. Their knowledge of apple and grape farming has been an invaluable asset. Thanks to Erino’s passion for cows, the barn was the last in Mezzocorona to produce fresh milk until the 2000s.
