Piero Spada is a Specialist in Cold Climate Wine Production providing consultative services throughout the Midwest.

Whether it’s maximizing a grape’s potential in the vineyard or actualizing that potential in the cellar, Piero enjoys helping his clients to develop and define their own unique vintner fingerprint.

Piero’s passion for wine stems from the intersection of his deep-rooted Italian heritage and his inherent interest in the biological sciences.

Piero received his BS in Biology from UW-Madison, and received his MS from Cornell’s Viticulture & Enology program.

“Piero is cheaper insurance than insurance… Some people call Piero when they already have a problem. The wise people call him before they have a problem.”
