In 2001 Francesco Condello, who created and now owns the Condé winery, decided to leave the world of high finance behind him after thirty years, in order to dedicate himself to what had always been his passion: wine-making. His love for this sector springs from his childhood, when, along with his grandparents who came from a long line of wine-makers he would spend time in the family vineyards helping with the production of the wine, which at the time was only for the consumption of the family. His strong bond with the soil and his passion for grape-growing were firmly rooted in him throughout the years he worked in Bologna as a stock broker, and he frequently travelled to the most important wine-producing areas in Europe. In 2001 he decided to follow his vocation and bind his own life to the bountiful lands around Predappio. He was spurred on by the desire to recreate a great tradition from the past. He founded the Condé winery with the firm intention of launching once again the production of an authentic Sangiovese di Predappio, which has its roots both physically and historically in these hills and it is from these very hills that the wine sets out on its journey to be appreciated and shared on the tables of every nation on earth.
