Sciacchetrail® & Winemakers (Part 4) – Cantina Forlini Cappellini
Sciacchetrail is possible thanks to previous generations who transformed the landscape and built the trail network, and the current generation of winemakers who preserve the terraced hillsides. We are grateful for our partnership with the “Associazione Viticoltori Comune di Riomaggiore”, and we’d like to introduce you to its members.
Alberto and Germana, Forlini Cappellini
Forlini Cappellini, founded in 1986 by husband and wife team Alberto Cappellini and Germana Forlini, was one of the first producers of Cinque Terre DOC wine. Their 1 hectare is divided over 6 lots, and 80% of their vines are grown on characteristic pergolas. In 2017, Alberto and Germana won the Romano Levi award for Winemaker of the Year. You’ll run through their vineyard at around km 32.5.
