About today’s guest producer:

Valeria Radici Odero says that “by the 1920s, Frecciarossa was already a well established name, far beyond the confines of Oltrepò Pavese. When Prohibition ended in the States, in 1933, Frecciarossa was among the first Italian wines to appear on the American market and was issued Export Permit n. 19, i.e., the nineteenth Italian product to be granted the right to sell in the U.S.

My mother, Margherita, started working with my grandfather in the late ’70s, with equal passion and determination. In the ’90s, she renovated the cellars and hired the help of oenologist, Franco Bernabei. He was replaced in 2000 by Gianluca Scaglione, who is still with us today and has become an integral part of our team, along with Cristiano Garella. I came back to this land a few years ago. It felt like home to me, and I love it just like the generations who bestowed it on me.”
