Episode 730 Marc Millon interviews Marilena Cocci Grifoni of Tenuta Cocci Grifoni, in this episode of Italian Food & Wine with Marc Millon on the Italian Wine Podcast.
About today’s guest:
Since the beginning of the ’90’s she has been working with her parents, Guido & Diana, in their winery, set up by her grandparents in the early ’30’s. The winery was consolidated in 1970 and became a total chain winery -from Vineyards going through to sales passing per vinification aging-refining bottling. She got married to Nicola 32 years ago and is the mother of two daughters Marta ( 28) and Camilla ( 25). She has been more involved in the winery over the past 11 years since Guido’s passing away. Their goal has always been: to leave a real sustainable winery to their daughters and to the community.
