The Balan company was founded in 1962 by a very young Sergio Balan, who thus put to good use the knowledge gained working with his father Giuseppe and his grandfather Jeremiah: both had various agricultural activities, but were known above all as, we would say today, specialized courtiers in the wine sector. During the First World War, Giuseppe, who left for the front, could not take care of the family business. At that time his wife Rosa Stella played a decisive role in the stability of work and the maintenance of relationships built by her husband.
Sergio began his activity in the garage of his house, which is still in front of the main company headquarters, in Sant'Ambrogio di Trebaseleghe, whose construction began in 1966. Since then Sergio Balan has gradually assembled structures, rows and connoisseurs to expand the company to transform it into the current reality, with two production sites, for a total of seventy hectares directly controlled and six thousand square meters of winemaking, refining, bottling, and marketing facilities. Also in this case the role of a woman, Attilia, Sergio's wife, was fundamental, and was the only shoulder on which he could count at the beginning of his activity.
Since the end of the eighties the Balan group has launched itself into the business of distributing great Italian and foreign wines. This new activity has joined the production, which has never ceased to give excellent results both in terms of numbers and quality.
Today the Balan portfolio can count on around 2000 products, with some of the most important and well-known wines in the world.
The work of four generations, the continuous effort towards innovation, the synergy between production and marketing, agreements with prestigious partners and, more than anything else, an inexhaustible passion for wine, have made Balan one of the protagonists of this world in Italy.
