Discover the history of Cantina Pelossi
Sacha Pelossi’s first wine was 500 litres that he “made for pleasure” and, he laughs, it wasn’t very good. That 1995 wine is far in the past, and today his 6 hectares, 30,000 bottles and seven wines are justifiably a source of pride, for his reputation for fine wines has been hard-earned. “I started from scratch: no vines, no land, and no finances!” He had worked until 2009 for a major Ticino wine producer, all the while building his own vineyard and making his own wine on the side. In 2012 he took over his father’s winery. Today he has three people working with him and his Collina d’Oro Merlot is a regular medal-winner, the best known in this beautiful collection of Merlot wines.
