Guido Brivio’s story began at the end of the 1980s when he acquired “Fratelli Valli di Stabio” with the help of his mother and uncle after finishing his oenology studies in France. The family has a background in the spirits industry and holds the licence to produce Cynar throughout Switzerland, but Guido’s true passion has always been elsewhere: in wine. It is this very passion that fuelled his desire to produce wine from grapes grown in the region of Ticino.
At that time, “Fratelli Valli” imported wine from abroad and produced around 5,000 bottles of Ticinese wine, too small a quantity to allow for new markets. Guido Brivio jumped at the chance to bring to fruition an idea that he had been thinking about for a long time: the creation of a new brand, based on the production of high-quality local wine with a new and attractive image.
Right from the start, Brivio Vini teamed up with Gialdi Vini and, thanks to the grapes supplied by the winegrowers from Mendrisiotto, the first wines of the new Brivio brand came into being. All the bottles were destined for top-class restaurants and dedicated connoisseurs.
In 2001, Brivio Vini SA was integrated in the Gialdi Vini SA Group. The slogan “United we stand” proved to be truer than ever on this occasion. These two important Ticinese brands have succeeded in producing a huge synergy effect which has made it possible to acquire a larger share of the market.
Brivio Vini SA is currently one of the top Ticinese winemaking companies. Its aim for the future is to produce refined, sophisticated wine and to guarantee that end customers can buy top-quality products.
