History of the familyname

Amistar is a familyname from Susanna Amistar. She married a DeSilva Kaspar Anton in 1678 and she was the last Amistarchild from the Amistarfamily. So, weve got this name and my idea was as one of the oldest winery here to use Amistar for the special qualities -- Just to produce something special with the name of our old spanish family.

DeSilva was our old name before weve got Slva. The name changed in lot of years to Slva. Andrea DeSilva was from Madrid and he came in Italy in 1200 as a vintner and so starts this long story of winemaking...1731 was the foundation of our winery, also to produce wine and sell wine in 50 liter barrels around our region...
