The winery is located in the heart of Lambrusco Grasparossa’s territory, located in the hamlet of Settecani, on the border of the towns of Castelvetro, Castelnuovo Rangone and Spilamberto. A winery that has grown from 48 farmers in 1923 to over 200 farmers today, never stopping to set new and ambitious goals, overcome difficulties, and celebrate success. This family-run company has worked together over the years to create a unique brand, develop new products, and enter into new foreign markets, which has resulted in many achievements, awards, and high-quality products.
At Cantina Settecani, the family embraced the region’s rich history and situated themselves amidst the churches, castles and vine-covered hills that define such a traditional territory. They use a combination of cutting-edge, modern technologies with the traditional family processes while also respecting the environment and promoting sustainable production. The Cantina is proud to have produced a product which has attracted many important admirers, such as the famous Italian cyclist Gino Bartali who travels all the way to Modena to enjoy the delicious Lambrusco Settecani in the historic restaurant of Zoello and always brings a trunk full home – a tradition that continues to this day.
Cantina Settecani has been awarded the prestigious V.I.V.A. certification from the Italian Ministry of the Environment, Land and Sea for its excellent production processes and sustainable products.
