The Ceci winery was founded by Otello an innkeeper of the low plain of Parma who could combined the history of the wine to its future. In 1938, in his farm, Otello poured his Lambrusco with the grapes bought by the local farmers, while someone was cooking the best tripe of the province. His sons Giovanni and Bruno were still kids but already knew the fascinating process of the pressing of the grapes and they were just fascinated. The catering was quit to leave space to the Ceci winery.

They represent the soul of the company who contribute to give a new impulse to the winery and to create even more solid basis for the future owners.
