The wine production and trading company "Tamborini Vini" in Lamone (near Lugano) in the Swiss canton of Ticino was founded in 1944 by Carlo Tamborini. Today it is managed by his son Claudio. The vineyards cover about 32 hectares in several estates. These are Tenuta Terre di Gudo (in Gudo), Tenuta Vallombrosa (in Castelrotto), Tenuta Sanzeno (in Lamone), Vigneto Ai Brughi (in Comano), Tenuta San Rocco (in Porza) and Tenuta San Domenico (in Neggio). The Tenuta Terre di Gudo is located in the Sopra Ceneri, while the other wineries are in the Luganese region. All wines are produced in the Lamone winery. The yield from our own property accounts for about half of the production, the rest is purchased from contract winegrowers

Among the historic wineries are not only the Castello di Morcote (in Vico Morcote) but also the Tenuta Vallombrosa (in Castelrotto). This winery is the actual "cradle" of Merlot del Ticino. Thanks to the mild and balanced climate, the Ticino Merlot was first planted here. The flagship of the house is "San Zeno Costamagna CRU". Other premium wines are the red wine cuvée "Terre di Gudo Rosso" (made from Merlot and Carminoir), the "Comano" (made from Merlot), aged 12 to 18 months in barriques, the "San Zeno Riserva" (Merlot), and the "Vignavecchia", vinified in Burgundy style from Merlot vines more than 40 years old. Grappa (from Merlot, aged for five years in wooden barrels), olive oil and honey are also produced.
