From 1892 until today
1892: THE FIRST STEP
In the 80's of the penultimate century - when the whole of Italy was looking for work - Carlo Vergani from Cisano-Bergamo set off on a journey. With the energetic support of his wife Adele, he opened a Comestibles shop with Italian specialities at today's company headquarters in Zurich Wiedikon.
1915 - 1920: WHOLE IN THE FOUNDING YEARS
The son Giovanni Vergani founds a wine import company and winery, which his children Carlo and Vera join in 1950.
1950: A MILESTONE IN THE HISTORY OF VINIVERGANI
Under our Nonno Carlo Vergani, the Vergani House goes through a very decisive phase. Friendliness and correctness, straightforwardness and perseverance characterize his personality. These attributes make many important producers (Querciabella, Arnaldo Caprai etc.) his friends in the course of his life. He is a pioneer for many innovations in the family business Vergani, from which our customers still benefit today.
1975 - 1982: THE FIRST GRAPPERIA OF SWITZERLAND
Nadia, Leila and Reto Vergani are the representatives of the 4th generation Reto Vergani, the current managing director, maintains active contact with producers and customers. Thanks to his passion for grappa and his constant search for undiscovered wine treasures, we are able to open the first grapperia in Switzerland.

With Luca, graduate wine technologist, Flavia, B.A. Communication and Accounting clerk, and Gianni Vergani, B.A. HSG and M.A. Bocconi, the new 5th generation is introduced into the company. With them, the partnerships with our producers and customers will be further cultivated.
