Giordano Vini has been producing wine since 1900, initially for a small and loyal customer base, then in 1950, thanks to the intuition of Ferdinando Giordano to abandon the traditional distribution chain in favor of direct contact with the customer, by excluding intermediaries for the benefit of the customer, Giordano Vini launches a direct sale model to the final consumer, transforming the Giordano family business in a dynamic business reality.
Giordano Vini represents one of the largest realities in the direct sale of wine, exporting not only on national territory, but also throughout Europe. From commitment and business passion arises a wide assortment ranging from classic ‟controlled origin” and ‟controlled quality and origin” Langhe’s guaranteed label products, to the excellent Apulian wines produced in Torricella and includes many of the most famous Italian wines from the most favorable regions. At the end of 2014 Giordano Vini becomes part of IWB - Italian Wine Brands, together with Provinco Italia, the first Italian wine group to be quoted on the Stock Exchange.
