The estate and the vineyards where the Calatroni farm stands today belonged to the Vecchietti family in the past, until 11 November 1964, the date on which Luigi Calatroni took over the entire property. Up to that moment Luigi had cultivated those lands as a sharecropper, like the four generations that had preceded him (the sharecropper was a winegrower who paid the land rent with half the yield of the vineyard). Today, many years later, the way of making wine has evolved hand in hand with technological innovations and discoveries in the technical-oenological field, but the passion and the roots are still the same. The company is located in Montecalvo Versiggia in the province of Pavia, within the Oltrepò Pavese denomination, and both red and white grape varieties are grown such as Pinot Noir, Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Bonarda and more.
