The Drink Business : Daria Garofoli one of the TOP 10 WOMEN IN ITALIAN WINE

The Drink Business : Daria Garofoli one of the TOP 10 WOMEN IN ITALIAN WINE

THE DRINK BUSINESS article by Tom Bruce Gardyne. Vini Garofoli is the oldest producer in the Marche, making Verdicchio and supplying UK supermarket giant Tesco with its own-label version for a near, record-breaking 25 years. Its secret weapon is Daria Garofoli who remained behind the scenes for 33 years as a full- time mum, English teacher and wife to chairman Gianfranco Garofoli. “When I retired in 2001, I asked him if I could have something to do,” she explains. “He offered me two afternoons a week and said, ‘Don’t imagine, you’ll become export manager because you’ve got to stay here with me!’” The irrepressible Daria Garofoli force of nature Daria had other plans. Within three months Daria Garofoli had flown the nest to promote the company’s wines abroad, averaging 100 days a year on the road. At the same time she nurtured her son, Gianluca (33) to eventually take over as export manager. She says he shares a similar personality and she now feels safe with him handling big projects on his own. Meanwhile, Gianfranco Garofoli prefers to stay at home where he is also president of the Verdicchio producers association. This is probably just as well for beyond the Marche, Gianfranco might simply be known as: “husband of the more famous Daria”.

Petra Winery selected by Architectural Digest as one of the 19 best wineries in the world

Architectural Digest 8/19 Petra Winery Suvereto, Italy Petra Winery, located near the ancient Tuscan village of Suvereto, was designed by Swiss architect Mario Botta and completed in 2003. The structure has architectural features reminiscent of other Botta designs, including a cylindrical core (as seen at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art) and a plant-topped roof (similar to the one crowning the Cathedral of the Resurrection in Évry, France), but the building is firmly grounded in the region, with an exterior clad in rough-hewn pink stone from Verona. A world class architectural environment for wonderful wines!
