An organic and fair trade wine store run by the Bocardo family.
February 8, 2021, Aventura, FL – The Zonin family’s U.S. subsidiary, 1821 Fine & Spirits, is adding Argentine winery Proemio to its growing global portfolio. Proemio is a family winery run by Marcelo Bocardo, a third-generation Mendoza-born winemaker. Proemio means “prologue” in ancient medieval Spanish. The winery has been certified organic since 2017 and is also certified as a Fair Life winery.
In 2001, Marcelo Bocardo, a descendant of an Italian immigrant family, founded Proemio Winery with the goal of producing sustainable, high-quality, ultra-premium wines that focus on the uniqueness of their soils. “Marcelo’s vision is clear in the creation of this award-winning portfolio,” he said. “Proemio’s opportunity for success extends to chains, wines and terroirs across the United States,” said Sean Balzano, director of wine and spirits sales at 1821.
“As an Italian descendant, it is an honor to be associated with the Zonin family. We share the same passion for winemaking, to produce wines that are authentic and appeal to the terroir, while protecting the environment for future generations. This is part of our philosophy,” says Bocardo.
Proemio produces clean energy which accounts for 50% of their consumption and aims to reach 100% in the coming years. They sell over 300,000 kg of grape stems for reuse as firewood in brick kilns and 120,000 kg of grape skins for the alcohol industry, which are then returned to their cellars as natural fertilizer for the vines. Proemio Winery is also making greater use of solar energy and has launched a recycling initiative with staff training.
Proemio features state-of-the-art technology, including a double selection belt, gravity-fed tanks and pneumatic presses. Proemio uses stainless steel and concrete tanks that make efficient use of energy during winemaking. The company has invested in new concrete eggs/concrete chains, improved hail protection, and new barrels for growing reserve stock.
