Strategic Partnership Bolsters Piemonte Winery’s Expansion Plans
La Morra, Cuneo — Monday, June 7, 2021 — Effective from today, the Canelli producer Coppo is part of Dosio Group, the La Morra wine producer. Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
The agreement is based on a common vision to preserve and enhance the history and regionality of the Langhe and Monferrato — two areas of excellence recognized as World Heritage Sites by UNESCO in 2014.
With more than a century of history, Coppo accomplishes its own vineyards producing fine wines in its cellars, the so-called “underground cathedrals” declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2014, a true temple dedicated to wine, its history and the dedication of the Coppo family.
Of the partnership, Head of Dosio Group, Gianfranco Lanci commented:
“Our families both have tremendous history and respect for our home in Piemonte and this partnership is an opportunity to establish a smooth relationship between the rhythms of nature and winemaking, and the latest technological innovations available today.”
For the Coppo family, the move into the Dosio Group means looking to the future with the intention of writing a new chapter in what will continue to be an all-Italian story, deeply rooted in the values, mission and skills with which the family has developed the brand over more than 125 years.
Export Sales Manager, Luigi Coppo, is also thrilled for the new opportunity for growth:
“This is a great opportunity to build a synergistic portfolio of wines and an exciting new vision to what can be a static outlook for the wine industry.”
“Since our UNESCO listing in 2014, we have developed a strong reputation for our hospitality and tourism offerings, and this partnership enables us to offer an unparalleled experience for wine lovers to visit La Morra and Monferrato and experience our wines.”
The third and fourth generation members of the Coppo family will continue in their current leadership roles. Roberto Coppo will continue as Chief Winemaker, Paolo Coppo as Italian Sales Director, and Luigi Coppo as Export Sales Manager. Roberto and Luigi will also join the newly formed Board of Directors.
Coppo wines will continue to be represented by national importer Folio Fine Wine Partners.
