Contratto was founded by Giuseppe Contratto in 1867. The cellar is known as the oldest producer of sparkling wines in Italy. In fact, the classic 1919 Contract Extra Brut method was the first vintage sparkling wine ever produced in the country.
The cellar has a long and prestigious history. At the end of the twentieth century, his wines left Canelli for destinations all over the world (mainly towards royal families), and Contratto was the personal supplier of the Vatican as well as of the Italian royal family. Recognitions and medals from exhibitions and international competitions of the time highlight the reason why the name of the Contract has long been synonymous with prestige and quality in the world of sparkling wines.
