We want to show you our winery and its products, inextricably linked to the land of Lambrusco. The Lini Winery was founded here in Correggio, in the heart of the region of Emilia, by our great- grandfather Oreste in 1910, as you can clearly see on our labels. Much has changed in the wine world over the last 100 years, especially for Lambrusco, which is making a great comeback.
The Lini Winery has always distinguished itself with its range of Lambrusco and has put in years of hard work, research and oenological trials to develop the use of the Metodo Classico (as used in the production in Champagne) for Lambrusco.
It was thanks to this wine, that in 2015 Lini was nominated one of Opera Wine’s 100 Greatest Producers by Wine Spectator. We are equally proud of our excellent Metodo Classico Pinot Noir and the PDO Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Reggio Emilia, an elixir of luxury, which is expertly aged in hundreds of precious wooden kegs. The Lini Winery is still a family business and now, its fourth generation is proud and committed to present its new generation Lambrusco to the world.
LouElla is Downtown Durham's neighborhood bottle shop, bar, and event space offering curated wine, craft beer, and fortified selections from family operated producers.

Whether we are serving you at the bar or helping you pick that perfect bottle to host your celebration, our mission is to share LouElla's hospitality with the community.
