Rosina Zambon was a strong-willed and enterprising lady, she was born in Arborea in Sardinia, the daughter of Venetian immigrants who had settled on the island in the 1930's following the land reclamation projects of the Facist era. In the 1960's, the family returned to the Veneto region and Rosina started to work for a distillery in the Conegliano area. Here she met Aldo Bottega who became her husband. Together with a business partner, in 1967 they started their entrepreneurial adventure by taking over Distilleria Sartor. Ten years later, in 1977, they founded Distilleria Bottega, giving their name to a business that absorbed them both completely.
In 1983 after the premature death of her husband, Rosina found herself at a crossroads, but she did not lose heart. With courage and hard work, together with her 19-year-old son Sandro, she decided to keep on down the same road, albeit littered with difficulties. Very soon, her younger children Barbara and Stefano also became an integral part of what at the time was a small, family-run firm. All of them together, over the years, have contributed to the firm's constant and progressive growth, transforming Distilleria Bottega into a sturdy business of outstanding quality and innovation.
With the Alexander and Bottega brands, Rosina Zambon Bottega, known to most as Rosy, helped introduce grappa to variouscelebrities around the world to help build trends and influence consumer habits. This has worked very well for the business and their products are now known globally for their distinctive presentation and top reputation.
