Our history

Luigi Da Prato and his brother Persio Da Prato. Tenth anniversary of “Gigi Bar” Venezuela.

Podere Concori was born from the ambition of my father Luigi Da Prato who in the 1950s began a journey or rather an adventure: producing wine. The origins of my family span generations from carpenters to painters to innkeepers, cooks...wine has always been part of this world. Wine was produced for snacks and Luigi kept it in demijohns.

Our mascot

Our donkey arrived to us in the spring of 2015, a small puppy of about 5 months. He was given the name of the day he was born: San Pietro precisely.
He loves being caressed, eating fresh vegetables from the garden, shoots from the vines, our garden flowers, all the fruit he can find and even your shirts!
