In a vintage like no others, it’s inevitable to acknowledge the repercussions of Covid-19. As the wine industry faces another great global unknown, we are confident that we’ll hit back with a stronger proposition.

At Querciabella we’re are always concerned about the wellbeing of those around us and we took the whole situation very seriously.  We implemented all measures suggested to contain the spreading of the virus (…) all trips and events have being cancelled or postponed until further notice, so we are starting to evaluate new strategies and diverse business opportunities.
