Thorough research has revealed that the Mosolo family has an ancient, noble lineage, as documented in papers dating back to 1447, where the Mosolos are mentioned as well-off land owners near Munich, in the Bavaria region of Germany.
In 1541, pursuing business interess the family moved to Basel and continued to purchase more land, thus expanding the extent of the property.
In the 18th century, intrigued by viticulture and wines imported across the Alps from Italy, some members of the Mosolo family decided to move to Friuli to grow vineyards and produce wines.
The history of the current Azienda Mosolo started at the beginning of the 20th century, when grandfather Angelo started the production of bulk wine to be sold on the local market.
In the early 1970s, his son, Gleni, undertook an important commercial makeover of the family business by starting to bottle higher quality wines and purchasing new agricultural land in the Colli Orientali del Friuli (Friuli Eastern Hills) wine zone area.
First, the Mosolo Gleni wines conquered the national market. In more recent years, thanks in part also to the arrival on the scene of son Michele who, once having completed his studies, decided to help his father in managing the winemaking business, the family wines started to be appreciated outside Italy as well.
This turn of events allowed the Mosolos to give a new spin to the family business, which was right in tone with the evolution of the Italian wine world in recent years.
