Casa Vinicola Zonin S.p.A.

Zonin, a company of family owned vintners since 1821, is proud of its heritage and reputation for creating authentic Italian wines. With its close ties to the land for the past seven generations, the Zonin family heads the most important viticulture group in Italy and one of the leading private winemaking companies in Europe. The family owned vineyards produce wines that embody the unique personalities of the areas from which they originate. Almost two centuries after the first winery was founded, Zonin now owns and operates eleven vineyard estates in many of Italy’s most important vine growing regions.

Francesco Zonin is the second of the three sons of Giovanni Zonin, president of Casa Vinicola Zonin S.p.A. of Gambellara (Vi). He holds a degree in Economics and Commerce from the Universita’ Commerciale “Luigi Bocconi” of Milan. Francesco lived in the United States from 1999 to 2002 where he actively followed the commercial networks of American distributors charged with the sale of Zonin wines from the Atlantic to the Pacific coasts. As well, he followed the development of Zonin’s American vineyard, Barboursville Vineyards, located in Virginia.

In these three years he worked in close contact with the marketing, communication and distribution sectors of viticulture as it changed profoundly in the new millennium that brought with it a rapid acceleration of globalization. Today Francesco is the Vice President of Casa Vinicola Zonin S.p.A. working closely with commercial activities both at home and abroad. He resides in Vicenza.
