Our History

by Giovanni Guglielmi

  • End Of Nineteenth Century

    Our Far Beginnings

    The grape growing has always been present in Guglielmi's farmland. At the end of nineteenth century, since the grape phylloxera destroyed our old grapevines, my great-grandfather Giandomenico had to replace the grapevines.

  • 1960s

    In the 1960s my father Elmo committed to farm grapevines of Rossese and Massarda, the grape growing was totally handmade. At that time, in our land farmer started to grow the roses.

  • January 28, 1972


    Thanks to a new legislation about wine, Rossese became a DOC wine in 1972 and many winegrower began began to bottle the wine and sell it directly to restaurants. Conversely my father continued the wholesale of wine.

  • End Of 1970s

    Crisis In The Wine Sector

    By the end of 1970s the wine sector suffered a bad crisis, a lot of low quality wine was sold at a low price to bars and restaurants. In those years, floriculture replaced the vineyard growing in our land.

  • 1980s and 1990s

    My family committed to floriculture until 1990s. In that period, that sector went into a deep crisis still present. Since the production costs increased and gains decreased, farmers tried to find other sources of revenue.

  • Early 2000s

    The Birth Of Poggi Dell'Elmo

    I remember the day in which we began to think about expand the vineyards and build a cellar. It was the beginning of a dream, I saw my father's eyes shine. Poggi dell’Elmo was officially born in 2000 and owes its name to my father Elmo.

  • From 2002 To Nowadays

    In recent years, we have expanded dealing with many adversities and continuing to work every day with dedication, because it is always important to remember that, despite Internet and the tools of advertising and marketing, the most important thing is working land.
