Ronco Margherita: a story of love and wine.
Alessandro Bellio was born in Treviso in 1975.
As a young boy was passionate about rugby and he joined the Benetton Rugby Treviso, playing as prop.
Rugby is a tough sport, in which individual effort leads the team to success: Alessandro grow in this way, through mud, sweat and satisfactions.
The physical effort doesn’t scare him, and with clear ideas decides to enroll in the Wine School of Conegliano in which he graduated in 1995.
As a winemaker, he began working in the wine industry in Veneto, but in 1998 another love strikes him and pushes him to move: Friuli Venezia Giulia, motherland of great wines, becomes his new home.
For seven years he leads an important Friulian winery as winemaker, agronomist and sales manager and in 2006 he decided to open a service company to manage vineyards that soon will extend from Friuli to Veneto, Lombardy and Tuscany, working with leading companies in the wine sector.
Among the vineyards Alessandro knows Margherita, a gentle and reserved girl who feels for this land and these wines the same passion. The result is a solid and deep love from which, in 2009, was born the idea to open his own winery: Ronco Margherita.
The dream became reality in these years of hard team work, and has been reflected even more in 2015 with the transfer of the headquarters in Pinzano al Tagliamento, in the ancient estate belonged to Ruggero Forti, father of modern Friulian viticulture.
In addition to the approximately 12 hectares distributed between the hills of Pinzano and the area of magredi of Dandolo, in the municipality of Maniago, the company also has a large production in the eastern hills of Friuli.
