“La Collina dei Ciliegi” winery is born thanks to the Gianollis’ passion for land, farming and wine, that find its best expression in the area of Verona.
Massimo Gianolli, successful businessman and wine enthusiast since his youth, met Stefano Falla, with whom he shared his passion, and together they created in 2005 a small-scale production, using a selection of grapes allocated for their first Amarone. This wine, as dictated by the strict production protocol, would be created four years later.
The registered offices and the showroom are in Milan (Via Giorgio Stephenson, 43A) while the vineyards and the estate are near Verona, on the Valpantena hills. The 45-hectare estate is adorned with vineyards and lush cherry trees, giving the brand its name. La Collina dei Ciliegi (Cherry Trees Hill) is known for its intense and strong-flavored red wines such as l’Amarone, il Corvina, il Valpolicella Superiore, il Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso and for its fresh and fine white wines Lugana e il Garganega.
La Collina dei Ciliegi’s wines are currently sold to premium Ho.Re.Ca operators and private connoisseurs/expert.
Thanks to its far-sighted commercial policy, in just few years “La Collina dei Ciliegi” has accomplished very successful goals in the Italian market, and has decided to extend its business to other countries.
The Chinese market is nowadays the most succesful foreign market for the company, with an amazing growth rate.
Beyond China, the other target markets approached since the very beginning, now well consolidated, are United Kingdom, Germany, traditionally appreciative of Italian wines, and the Scandinavian countries. In addition, Romania and Mexico.
In the Asian area, besides China, La Collina dei Ciliegi currently boasts stronger and stronger business relationships also in Japan, Taiwan, the Philippines and Thailand. Besides, for the North America, many distributors have been joined both in the USA and Canada.
