Giulio Cocchi founded his business in the North Western Italian town of Asti in 1891 when, as a young pastry chef, he became fascinated with the pairing of food and wine. Giulio began producing quality aromatic-infused wines and, by the turn of the century, two in particular; Barolo Chinato and Aperitivo Americano, had become very popular across international markets.
Cocchi's vermouths are much more than simple wines made with the infusion of herbs and spices. Aperitifs and digestifs par excellence, the Cocchi range is a taste of Piemonte's gastronomic history which dates back to the 1900s.
Giulio Cocchi is now owned by the Bava Family, themselves highly renowned wine producers. Today the winery still maintains its artisan character using only traditional techniques to craft the distinctive spirits that have made the Cocchi name synonymous with style and quality.
From the Americano, hailed as the original, to the Barolo Chinato, once drunk for medicinal purposes and to guard against fevers, Cocchi's vermouths remain some of the most well respected and quality driven in the world today.
Vermouth di Torino is a collective heritage of Piedmont, starting in the late XVIII century in the royal court of Savoia and spreading to the four corners of the world in the XX century.
Cocchi Vermouth di Torino is produced according to the original recipe of Giulio Cocchi, who founded this respected House in 1891. This vermouth belongs to the category of the sweet italian vermouths, produced using fine Moscato wine as its base, which is then infused with a secret recipe of local and exotic botanicals.
Cocchi Vermouth di Torino has been the protagonist of the recent rebirth of these top-of-the-range vermouths. Great barmen from all over the world became very familiar with this product, so that it is often shortened "Cocchi Torino". Often winning international awards, it's been crowned "2020 Top Trending Vermouth" and "2020 Best Selling Vermouth" in the World's 100 Best Bars by leading trade publication Drinks International.
