Villa Delgi Olmi Winery
Creazzo Vicenza, Italy.
Since 1885, Villa Degli Olmi is a winery with a long tradition for the quality and distinctiveness of its wines. As early as 1926 Giovanni's wines were awarded the gold medal at important wine exhibitions of the time. The activity intensifies in the following years when the second generation enters the company, giving further impetus to business. Immediately after the Second World War, one of Giovanni's sons, Aurelio, decides to carry out an important autonomous project and open a newly built cellar. He chose the town of Creazzo as a location, then a small village close to the city of Vicenza, where his most loyal customers were found.
