OTHER INFORMATION

1921 

After many adventurous years spent working in restaurants of Turin, Evian Les Bains and Paris, Federico Matta (born in Asti, Italy) started importing wine in London. F.S. Matta Ltd became the largest and most dynamic importer of Italian wines and spirits in the United Kingdom, introducing previously unknown products, such as Campari, Gancia, acqua San Pellegrino, Olio Bertolli, Bolla and a myriad of other products that, thanks to the English showcase, have become leading brands in exports.

1966 

FS Matta Ltd was acquired by Beecham pharmaceutical group in order to diversify production in the wine sector. Federico Matta, still full of energy at 75 years, now focuses his efforts on Castello Vicchiomaggio which he purchased two years ago.

1970 

After studying at the School of Viticulture and Enology in Alba (Piedmont, Italy), for three years while also being active in the trade of wines in the UK, John Matta (son of Frederio) began his career at Castello Vicchiomaggio. As an expert on the importance of soil characteristics, low yields and sustainable traditional agriculture, John initiated an extremely prudent, and highly innovative step at the time, replanting the vines in line with his philosophy. Sangiovese is predominant of course, along with Cabernet and Merlot.

2010 

The two older daughters, Federica and Delfina, became part of the family business devoted to the development of splendid accommodation facilities and restaurant.
