Guest Bio – Marco Biscardo
Marco and his sister Sabrina are the fourth generation in the wine business. In 1930 their grandfather founded the Biscardo winery in the Bardolino area, close to Verona in Veneto region. At twenty, their father Augusto began to sell the typical wines of the Verona area like Amarone, Valpolicella, Bardolino, and Soave, first of all in Italy and then in Germany.
At that time the German market became more and more important so he spent more time abroad. In Germany at the same time three other wines had success: the Chianti, Lambrusco and Montepulciano. So, the Biscardo Winery decided to buy Montepulciano as BULK WINE, bottled and sold them.
When their grandfather, the founder of the Winery, passed away, their father decided to leave the Biscardo Winery to his brother and cousin and build his own distribution company for Germany.
Marco and Sabrina after they graduated, began to work with their father on the distribution of wines from 14 Italian wineries: from different regions from north to south of Italy.
They began to travel in Italy learning the production areas, the philosophies of the individual wineries and the quality of the wines, but at the same time, they travelled a lot to Germany and other countries for the export of the wines of these wineries.
In 2002 Sabrina; Marco and their father made a big investment and bought the Fosso Corno estate in Abruzzo. Three years later, their father Augusto passed away without seeing the first harvest, but Sabrina and Marco decided to continue their vision and mission which is the production of a particular, quality Montepulciano wines.
