Marchese Anselmo Guerrieri Gonzaga
Anselmo Guerrieri Gonzaga was born in Rome on the May 6th, 1978. Always passionate about country side and animals, Anselmo left the sprawling family estate in Trentino to study business administration in Rome and London. Following his studies, Anselmo moved to South Africa in order to gain experience in the wine industry at several wine estates. In 2001, Anselmo returned home to join his father at the family’s estate, Tenuta San Leonardo. Anselmo has continued his education over the years, attending winemaking and wine tasting courses. However, his time in the cellar with his father and the experienced staff, some of whom have worked for Tenuta San Leonardo for generations, has been Anselmo’s greatest learning experience. Today, Anselmo is the ceo of the estate and acts as a brand ambassador in foreign markets. The prestigious wines of Tenuta San Leonardo are exported in 50 countries worldwide, and Anselmo’s travels take him to major market such as the United States, Brazil, Russia, China and Western Europe. With almost 300 years of family tradition at the estate, Anselmo considers winemaking more of a way of life than an occupation. Tenuta San Leonardo’s motto is “the soil is our work’s soul”, and it’s a philosophy Anselmo proudly employees in his work each day.
