The winery "Casa Vinicola Gialdi SA" in Mendrisio in the Swiss canton Ticino
was created in 1984 when Feliciano Gialdi bought and modernized the ailing Roberto Foc winery in the small municipality of Bodio. There are no separate vineyards, only grapes from around 300 contract vintners with often the smallest vineyards in the valleys of Blenio, Leventina and Val Riviera in northern Ticino are purchased. The flagship of the house is the Merlot red wine "36", which is aged for 36 months in barriques. Other premium wines are the “Sassi grossi” (Merlot), which is also aged in barriques, and a white pressed Bianco di Merlot. Simpler merlots are produced under the respective community name.
