Quadra dates back to 2003, when Ugo Ghezzi decided to buy and completely renovate a small winery. He was an entrepreneur in the field of renewable energy and his idea was supported by his children, Cristina and Marco.
Actually, the Ghezzi Family had already started their winemaking project at the beginning of the 90s, when they planted their first Chardonnay and Pinot Noir vines in the so called area of Marzaghette d’Adro, where they founded a farm with the same name.
Our estate was enlarged between 1999 and 2004 and nowadays it covers 20 hectares (around 49 acres) located in 5 different sites in the surrounding area. Our vineyards stretch from the historical area of St. Eusebio, in the town of Cologne, where our winery is located, to the many plots planted with Pinot Noir in the nearby town of Provaglio d’Iseo.
After more than 20 years from the launch of our winemaking project, today at Quadra we express our local and national identity through our unique style in interpreting Franciacorta terroir and Franciacorta wine. Mario Falcetti runs the business, helped by the agricultural engineer and production manager Sergio Gatti and by the wine expert Antonia Tancredi, who manages quality control. We sell our wines in Italy (95% of total sales) through our network of about 60 representatives, but also abroad (mainly in Germany, then in Japan, Singapore and Switzerland) thanks to specialised importers.
