Uggiano

The Azienda Uggiano was originally set up by a group of Bergamo businessmen with a passion for Tuscan wines and inspired by a wine expert from the French school, Giuseppe Losapio.
In 1976 the vineyard expanded and settled at San Vincenzo a Torri, a beautiful location in the heart of Tuscany, nestled in the countryside in the midst of monasteries, churches and country villas.

Taking the professional reins from Giuseppe Losapio, the 3 partners of Uggiano aim to make people one of the core strengths.
