Malerba is two friends from high school, Marco Valentini and Filippo Artini, who, at the age of 40, begin their adventure together with the same thoughts, having reached this point through completely different paths: one by reinterpreting old farming experiences handed down by his grandfather, the other by becoming less tolerant of the inconsistencies in the wine sector during his career as an oenologist. After several years of experimentation, Malerba was born in 2018.

This text provides background information about the origins of Malerba and the two friends who started it, one drawing on ancestral farming knowledge and the other motivated by his experiences as an oenologist.
