Wine is an enrichment of the soul

It was 1908 when my grandparents, Gaspare and Giuseppina Ferlin, like many Italians who left their homeland to look for a better life elsewhere, moved from Rovigo to Zurich where they opened a typical Veneto osteria called «Casa Ferlin», now «Chiantiquelle». My grandfather, originally from Veneto, loved Tuscany, and in his osteria he served Chianti Classico from Castello di Uzzano as house wine. I had my first contact with Tuscany as a boy, when I helped my uncle Menotti carry thousands of straw-covered wine bottles to the «Casa Ferlin» cellar. The smell of straw and wine is unforgettable for me. I was destined to follow in my father’s footsteps in the high fashion boutique on Bahnhofstrasse in Zurich. To learn this trade I worked for five years in England, France, Italy, then for a short time in Spain.

1988
My wife and I felt the need to add a challenge to the routine of Bahnhofstrasse, challenging though it was. We wished to taste country life and produce wine on the rolling hills of the Chianti region. For the whole family this was an adventure rich in colours and nature. In 1989 we established the Azienda Agricola Terrabianca at Radda in Chianti. I met the oenologist Vittorio Fiore, who introduced me to the secrets of grapes and wine. For us it was all new and worth learning! Wine means effort, imagination and creativity. It is a work which we start and nature completes. People often ask me: «How did you become interested in winemaking»? It is actually a hard question to answer. Everyone has feelings, sensations, memories and impulses. Campaccio is the result, and its elegance represents my concept of creativity; on the other hand Croce Chianti Classico Riserva, with its strong connection to the region, represents my view of traditional wine.

2017
Life reserves plenty of interesting moments. In 2009 Maja and I sold the majority of shares in Terrabianca. In 2017 wine captured us again and we were able to buy Terrabianca back. Wine is a lifestyle, a creation which needs to match life; this is what makes it so fascinating. In our cellar we have all vintages produced from 1989 onwards: our history, a life dedicated to wine.
