The Tinazzi Family

The history of Cantine Tinazzi began with the commitment and passion of Eugenio Tinazzi at the end of the ‘60s in Cavaion Veronese, on the shores of Lake Garda. Gian Andrea Tinazzi, the founder’s son, at the time only 18 years old, worked alongside his father in running the business from the outset. Thanks to his decisive and entrepreneurial character, he gradually broadened the company's horizons, both in terms of production and markets. Today, Gian Andrea’s children, Francesca and Giorgio, manage with their father what has become a major wine production group based in Lazise, on Lake Garda. A quick and successful development of the business led the family to expand their properties in the Valpolicella Valley and in Apulia, a region with a great potential. The wines of the Cantine Tinazzi are now sold in more than 30 countries around the world.

"TINAZZI", in ancient Veronese tradition, were barrel-like receptacles in which the pressed grapes were placed to ferment.

The family’s close links to wine even gave origin to their name.
