About Martini & Rossi

A brief introduction to the brand
Vintage advertising poster prints

The Martini & Rossi company dates back to the mid-19th century, as a vermouth bottling plant in Pessione, Italy. Three men became the most powerful in the company: businessman Alessandro Martini, winemaker Luigi Rossi and accountant Teofilo Sola so in 1863 the company became known as Martini, Sola & Cia. The Sola family sold out of the business in 1879 and the company then changed its name to Martini & Rossi.

In 1929, the now famous ball-and-bar logo of the brand was registered which is still today seen in much of their labeling and advertising. They have always pursued aggressive advertising campaigns including sponsoring sporting events, in particular motor racing. Perhaps most well known for their vermouth products, there are numerous ones produced under the Martini & Rossi label: Martini Rosso, Martini Bianco, Martini Extra Dry, Martini Rosato, Martini D’Oro, Martini Fiero and Martini Gold. They also produce Martini & Rossi Asti sparking wine from Piedmont and Martini & Rossi Prosecco from Veneto.
