Gaetano Marangelli

Finding future looking at the past.


As a lifelong explorer, dreamer, and insatiable traveler, Gaetano’s intrinsic curiosity and affinity for history, art, and culture have served as a constant source of inspiration. 

Gaetano has developed and continues to nurture a work environment which respects the moral and economic dignity of human beings, a guiding principle of his personality and of his vision for the winery.
He implements an ideal of business to enhance the work, the wine, the territory, and its people. Work is a combination of intelligence, responsibility and passion of people, a key asset to success.

Gaetano Marangelli was born in Triggiano, Apulia, on February 7th, 1963. He is a hardworking and tireless traveler: a dedicated husband and a devoted father to his young daughter Anna and to his son, Pietro.
