PASQUA DI VERONA
The history of Cantine Pasqua di Verona (www.pasqua.it) is certainly one of
sunny vineyards laid out over an enchanting landscape, but it is also a beautiful
tale of a business with a âhumanâ touch, a family tradition founded on the
ability to establish long-lasting relationships with its customers. These are the roots
of its eighty years of winemaking, with a tradition that certainly does not appear
to âweigh downâ in terms of vitality and freshness. We spoke to CEO Carlo Pasqua,
and asked him which foreign markets theyâve encountered the most success in, and
the winemakerâs projects for the near future.
What is the added value of a company such as yours?
Pasqua is a family outfit with over 80 years of history and experience in winemaking,

of becoming great wines, an expression of some of the very best winemaking areas
in Italy, merging tradition and innovation. The innovation process is applied to all
areas of the company, from production to distribution, to establish with each of our
customers a relationship based on reciprocal trust and guarantee the business
investments in production installations, research and training.

positive results. Elsewhere, in Great Britain and the United States, where a member
of our family is present firsthand, and Germany.

new frontier for wine merchants.
