The founder. Anacleto Bonelli, post WWII man, founded the Bonelli winery right after the war. Maybe unknowingly, he established an activity strongly connected to the territory, for the first time linking all the grape growers of the valley in a unified network and creating a distinctive wine to promote its peculiarity – the Trebbianino Val Trebbia. The path he took in the 1950s would be defined today as sustainability.
Development and tradition
In the 1970s, Anacleto’s activity passed on to his three sons Luciano, Carlo and Censo. These were the years of continuous development and investment in the newest technologies, and it was then that the three brothers acquired the Due Querce vineyard estate and their winery became the reference point for all the wine makers in the valley.
Today With the same dedication as their predecessors, Bonelli’s third generation is committed to maintain and further develop the family business. Always paying respect to their traditions and family example, Franco, Enrico Elena and Andrea focus on innovation and experimentation, constantly improving their ways of working within the supply chain, promoting labour and environmental sustainability as well as launching new products.
