The Accelerator of the Italian wine ecosystem in the world.


Our places and our wineries

CUVAGE (Piemonte)

Cuvage was born from the union of Cuvée and Perlage, the most identifying words of the iconic Metodo Classico in which Cuvage finds its highest expression.


In the heart of the Roero territory, among the Unesco Heritage hills, we carry on a centuries-old tradition thanks to winemakers who skilfully blend the oldest practices with the most modern oenological techniques.


In the Bidente Valley, in the Apennines, on the border with Tuscany overlooking the Riviera Romagnola, we cultivate our vineyards and live every day in the spirit of this welcoming and wonderful land. We like to be as true and generous as our Romagna.

BOTTER (Veneto)

A century of experience and hard work has resulted in one of Italy's largest wineries, one that is technologically advanced and able to dialogue with winemakers from all over Italy.


Among the picturesque hills of Bolognano, where dedication and patience are still important values, we take care of the vineyards with every attention to preserve and enhance the typical vines of this land.


Botter S.p.A. is founded

In Fossalta di Piave, a small town near Venice, Carlo Botter and his wife Maria start the business of selling local wines in casks and demijohns.

Zaccagnini is founded

Cantina Zaccagnini is born in Bolognano, in the heart of the Montepulciano d'Abruzzo "cru" production area, from Marcello Zaccagnini's desire to enhance the wines made from the grapes grown on his family's land.

MGM Mondo del Vino is founded

MGM Mondo del Vino is founded in Forlì, as the result of the pioneering vision of oenologists and wine experts Alfeo Martini, Roger Gabb and Christoph Mack. This is the encounter that leads to an innovative way of producing and marketing good quality Italian wine.

ARGEA Group is founded

From an initiative of the Clessidra SGR fund, Argea is born, uniting Botter spa and MGM Mondo del Vino spa with the objective of becoming the first private national pole of the sector and being the accelerator of Italian wine in the world.

Zaccagnini joins the Group

The entry of Cantina Zaccagnini into Argea is formalised.


The encounter of different skills and experience towards growth and innovation.
