Modena Wine

Ghirlandina 2 Lambrusco di Modena

Historical references to “Modena” or “di Modena” (of Modena) were commonly made as early as at least the middle of the nineteenth century thanks to the production method that consisted in the practice of making the wine from different kinds of grapes cultivated in the province of Modena.

The wine obtained was called “Lambrusco di Modena” since Modena is the capital of the province where all the grapes are grown. The consistent, significant commercial results achieved, consolidated in over a century of activity, have rendered “Lambrusco di Modena” one of the most qualified wines produced in the province, indeed, due to its renown, on a par with that of Lambrusco di Sorbara, Lambrusco Salamino di Santa Croce and Lambrusco Grasparossa di Castelvetro, it has also been granted the coveted D.O.P. appellation.
