Fred Dame: Piero, it is an honor to be here with you at the magnif- icent Antica Winery on Atlas Peak. With Marchesi Antinori dating back to 1385, you have to be one of the longest-lived family firms in the industry. In fact, any industry! How is it after 630 years? Piero Antinori: My ancestor Giovanni Piero di Antinori joined the Vintners Guild of Florence and we have enjoyed his efforts for over six centuries. My daughters are all involved, and I am confident that my grandchildren will be as well.
