The company "Fratelli Valsangiacomo SA" in Chiasso in the Swiss canton Ticino was founded in 1831 by Giovanni Valsangiacomo as a pure wine trading house. Only in 1954 was started then with own viticulture. Today, the company is run in the sixth generation of the family by Uberto Valsangiacomo. Its own vineyard area totals 16 hectares, nine others are leased and 35 hectares of grapes are purchased. All are located in the southernmost Ticino region Mendrisiotto. The main processed variety is Merlot, from which different red wines are vinified. These are the brands Cuvée Speciale, Don Giovanni, L'Ariete, Riserva di Bacco, Roncobello and Rubro, as well as a bottle fermented sparkling wine. Various white wines are made from Chardonnay. From Cabernet Franc, Chardonnay, Merlot and Americanos (American vines) are different grappa distilled.
