HISTORY


1111

Johannis de Travalino


The first certain mention of the Estate dates to 18 November 1111. The last will and testament of the priest Gisulfo cites one Johannis de Travalino, from whom the place where the ancient monastery stood takes its name.

1240

The «new» vineyards


Friar Guidone di Sannazzaro was granted jurisdiction over Calvignano. Among the lands owned by him appeared the hamlet of Travaglino, and for the first time in the area the term “new” vineyards was used, a sign that winegrowing already flourished there.

1600-1700

Villa Travaglino


Villa Travaglino was transformed into the current complex comprising an extensive courtyard, the oratory and farm workers’ houses.

1868

Travaglino Estate


Cavaliere Vincenzo Comi of Milan purchased the Villa and 810 Milanese perches – about 53 hectares - of surrounding land. It would become the first part of the Travaglino Estate.

*An ancient unit of medieval measurement, the perch varied according to the area where it was used. The “Milanese perch” is equivalent to 654.5 square metres

THE COAT OF ARMS

In front of the door of a castle,
the hand of an unknown herald holds a dove.
The Travaglino coat of arms symbolizes the gifts
that Cavaliere Vincenzo Comi’s family brought
as dowry to the castle of the Sottocasa,
Counts of Vimercate

1879

Unification and the coat of arms


Countess Sottocasa fell in love with Vincenzo Comi, and brought her family coat of arms as part of her dowry. The estate was extended to a total of 2,891 Milanese perches (about 189 hectares).

1965

A new Foundation


Vincenzo Comi, the Cavaliere’s grandson, revolutionized Travaglino, transforming the old Estate into a winegrowing business. It is to him we owe the first zoning of the estate, that is, analysing and selecting the most suitable plots of land to replant with the best vines. . La Locanda, the centre of Travaglino’s hospitality, is renovated.

1990 – 2000

A modern cellar


Zoning of the plots of land was followed by upgrading and modernization of the cellar. Cutting edge technologies were acquired, and concrete vats were replaced by modern temperature controlled stainless steel tanks.

2013

The fifth generation


First Cristina and then Alessandro Cerri Comi, Vincenzo’s grandchildren, join the company. Focus of attention is the quality of the wines produced, and on rationalizing the winery’s work, which is concentrated on the Estate’s two main varieties: Pinot Noir, in its innumerable nuances, and Riesling Renano. A new team of professionals is formed, made up of consultant oenologist Donato Lanati, supported by the Enosis research centre, and winemaker Achille Bergami.
