The ancient people from Liguria produced a type of wine Strabone described as resinous and harsh. They had learnt from the Greek settlers of Nice and Marseille to cultivate vine (still today the supporting pole of the vine is called in the local dialect “carassa” from the Greek “karax”). Also under Roman rule, vine was an important cultivation and opposite the coasts of western Liguria ships carrying wine were sailing. That is proved by the numerous amphoras which were discovered off the coast and exhibited in the Naval Museum of Albenga. In the following centuries where now the olive-tree is flourishing, it was the vine which was prevailing and many statute books regulated its cultivation. The discovery of walls and agrarian centurions around the pre-Romanesque church of San Dalmazzo show the ancient origins of Arnasco which must be searched in the hamlet of Arveglio, not existing any more, where crops and vineyards of our farm have always been present. The Gallizia family, our family, has existed in this area since 1250 and it is the oldest still present now. At the beginning of the 20th century, grandpa Innocenzo carried out a very useful duty for his community, that is the postal deliverer, duty later taken over by dad Dante.

The family events have interwoven with the cultivation of the land, crossing the family's generations, up to Luciano, Dante's son and current manager of the farm. The “Agricola Arnasco” is the natural fruit of an ancient family of wine and olive growers, spurred by an intense passion.
