Quotes

'Traditionally in Italy, vines were very biodiverse,' says Stefano Bellotti, who runs Cascina degli Ulivi, the family farm. "They grew alongside trees or vegetables, which were cultivated between the rows."
There's a saying (although I'm not sure who actually said it ... but I'm pretty sure it was an Italian) that goes, "Where the orchards grow, the olives will grow and the vines will also grow ..."
"This is a stellar achievement!" said Morelli. "We are proud of how Zonin USA has grown and are very appreciative of the efforts put forth by our distributor partners to help us achieve this award. We are very excited about the future of Zonin brands in the US market!"
