Casa Girelli has a know-how acquired through many years of experience in winemaking. The main elements are: speed, competence, care, research and the commitment to constantly improve. Casa Girelli's philosophy could be summarised: "Utmost attention to detail and constant research are key to achieving reliable superior quality in winemaking, with no compromise." This philosophy is applied to all stages of winemaking, from the vineyards to the wine cellar.

The Casa Girelli's "vineyard" represents all of Italy, enhancing the quality of the most important wine growing regions by selecting the best vines of each area. Vines are often very old, expressing the typical characteristics of the grape variety and giving excellent quality wines. Casa Girelli's winemaking team works closely with carefully selected growers.
Casa Girelli's headquarters are found in Trento. The Trento cellar has a capacity of 7.500.000 litres in tanks of various sizes and types, most of which are fitted with high-tech temperature control equipment to ensure optimum wine-storing conditions.
More than 2,000 barriques ensure the perfect ageing of the most prestigious wines. The winery laboratory is equipped with sophisticated technology and cutting-edge equipment. Every kind of wine control is carried out here, before and after bottling, to ensure that the wine maintains its structure and character over the years.
