Established by Antonio Garofoli in 1871, the Garofoli estate is the oldest wine company in the Marche, Italy. His son Gioacchino continued his father’s work and founded Gioacchino Garofoli in 1901. He was succeeded by his sons, Dante and Franco, and they were both succeeded by Franco’s sons, Carlo and Gianfranco. In 2005, the family’s 5th generation began working at the winery, Carlo’s daughter, Beatrice and Gianfranco’s daughter and son, Caterina and Gianluca, The 123 acre estate is planted on limestone, clay and sand based soils of medium consistency in the comunes of Montecarotto (at Cupo delle Larne), Ancona (at Paterno and Piancarda) and Castelfidardo (at Acquaviva). The wines are made from estate grapes and those purchased from respected local growers. The whites are produced at Serra de Conti; the reds and the sparkling at Castelfidardo. The whites are matured in underground or temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. The reds are aged in Slavonian oak casks or French oak barrels. Garofoli was among the first in Marche to use stainless steel tanks for fermentation and barriques for aging.

|The origins of the Garofoli winery date from the end of the 19th century, from 1871, when Antonio Garofoli had already began the production and sale of local wines. His son Gioacchino continued and expanded the paternal business. In 1901, he founded the Gioacchino Garofoli winery. His two sons, Franco and Dante, succeeded him in management of the estate after World War II. Gioacchino Garofoli became a company in 1950 and embarked on a process of strong development.. Following tradition, Franco’s sons, Carlo and Gianfranco, joined the family company’s staff in the early seventies. They worked together with the preceding generation for more than 20 years and they energetically promoted further development of the winery from both the production and commercial standpoints. The Gioacchino Garofoli winery is now a joint-stock company. Brothers Gianfranco and Carlo currently head it as chairman and vice chairman, respectively. The history of the Garofolis is a story of people and of a family that has been identified with winemaking for four generations. The same philosophy has always guided the house: a constant
updating of production techniques while respecting traditional and historic winemaking methods; attention to the evolution of the market and its requirements along with loyalty to the values of the special characteristics that the traditions of the territory have transmitted. In September of 2005 the fifth generation entered the Garofoli company: Caorlois daughter Beatrice and Gianfranco’s daughter and son, Caterina and Gianluca.
