Founded in 1910 by Oreste Lini, Lini 910 is a fourth-generation, family-owned and operated winery. Lini has produced some of Emilia's leading wines including the first-ever Lambrusco included in Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of Italy. Thanks to his longstanding relationships with growers and deft hand, winemaker Fabio Lini, along with his sister Anita Lini, and his brother Massimo Lini, has set the benchmark for artisanal Lambrusco, and has remained true to his family's trademark dry style of Lambrusco. The Lini Winery has always distinguished itself with its range of Lambrusco wines and has put in years of hard work, research and oenological trials to develop the use of the Metodo Classico (as used in the production in Champagne) for Lambrusco.
