Giampaolo Parpinello, with his children Paolo, Laura and Giusi decided to graft 100 Torbato buds from which the first 100 vines were produced. Today those buds have become 50,000 plants covering an area of 11 hectares of this grape variety. Torbato is a variety native to the Aegean basin, probably arriving in our land during the Catalan domination.
