1901: THE FOUNDER EMANUELE PEDROTTI STARTS TO PRODUCE WINE.

Pedrotti is a historical brand in the wine production of Trentino. In 1928 Italo, Emanuele’s son, takes over the winery; guided by his passion for the local territory he works for a continuous improvement in the quality of his wines. The same passion has been passed on to the third generation too: Paolo, after his studies in enology, initially devotes himself to the production of wine, and later to the production of spumante. Today, the sisters Donatella and Chiara run the company with the same passion and determination. Both are exclusively committed to the production of TrentoDOC - spumante Metodo Classico: the best expression of the local Terroir.

    It was a unique year! 17,000 bottles of Pedrotti metodo classico were produced.
