About: Vitivinicola Fangareggi was founded in 2005 by Giuseppe Fangareggi, even though the family has been growing Lambrusco since the 1800's. Today, Giuseppe's son, Matteo, runs the farm along with his mother, Margherita, and his uncle, Roberto. Giuseppe and Roberto take care of the vineyards, Margarita takes care of hospitality, and Matteo takes care of everything else, including the winemaking. Their wines are produced only from the family's 24 hectares of vineyards spread across eight parcels in the provinces of Reggio Emilia and Modena. Most vineyard work is done by hand and the vineyards are practicing organic with an advanced integrated pest management protocol. In the cellar, Matteo uses only indigenous yeasts for primary fermentation to produce six types of sparkling wines, both red and white, with a focus on the production of Lambrusco.
