Bruno, Alessandro and Federico
Vespa Vignaioli for passion is the name under which the company Futura 14 has been presenting itself to the Italian and international market since 2014.
Bruno Vespa has been a TV journalist with a passion for the world of wine since the great Luigi Veronelli taught him to love the men and women who are part of it since the 1970s.
For decades Vespa has been telling the story in his articles and one day he decided to become a winemaker himself, associating his sons Alessandro and Federico with the company. The Vespa family owns the splendid Masseria Li Reni, located in Manduria, Puglia, and owns over 34 hectares of land, a large part of which is already planted with vines and a part in the recent planting phase.
