Two centuries ago the Cesarini Sforza family was involved in the governing of the Duchy of Parma, when a member of the family was appointed Podestà (mayor) of Trento, and the family moved to the Bishopric of Trento. At that time the Trentino economy was dominated by agriculture, and noble families such as the Cesarini Sforza took great pride in owning top vineyards from which to produce excellent quality wines.
In 1974, a group of Trentino wine entrepreneurs founded the Azienda Spumantistica Cesarini Sforza, with the aim of producing quality spumantes which would impress not only the people of Trentino, but consumers all over Italy as well.
Over the past few years, Cesarini Sforza has come to represent a significant share of the domestic and indeed international market for spumante wines.
