Nothing happens by chance.
Gino, a hardworking member of a tenant-farming family, was also responsible for the production of the wine of the estate on which the Scarbolo family lived. Over the seasons he learnt all about the strict rules of nature and gained full understanding of the magic behind winemaking.
Great enthusiasm and passion, in the fifties, Gino moved to Lauzacco whit his family, where he had purchased his own fields and had decided to grow grapes among other crops. Indeed, he started producing wines which he sold locally in bulk, and started setting the foundations of the company as we know it today.
In 1987, Valter, who had grown up learning the dedication and passion for winegrowing from his dad, decided to study viticulture and oenology to continue the family business with a further qualitative leap: he planted his first vineyard inspired by the French school, which was characterized by narrow plant density and low yields, and began selling the wine in bottles rather than in bulk. Vintage after vintage, the vineyards grew in number and the Scarbolo brand took up the current profile. The traces of the tractor wheels left behind since 60 years ago, are continued by Valter and Maria Grazia together with Lara and Mattia, who have injected fresh energy and creativity into the family enterprise leading it to a new chapter.
“Day after day, we are faced with new opportunities and challenges, and it is up us to be able to best interpret these occasions and... get the wheels turning!”
Life is marked by cycles, and governed by few, strict rules set out by Mother Nature: the sun and the moon rise and set, the days and seasons succeed each other, death follows life, and all this repeats infinitely without particular changes.
These concepts forge the everyday life of all beings, offering them the certainties on which build their own experience, following the rhythms of nature and making peace with the most incomprehensible natural events.
The wheel as a symbol represents the concept of the process of becoming.
Wheels entail being powerful and having the energy to advance forward, overcoming all the obstacles, steep climbs and, sharp bends, by adopting a dynamic approach all the way.
Wheels represent the cycle of life, which though filled with changes and challenges, always offers an alternative, a second chance; a chance to improve and learn the lesson for tomorrow.
