Chiara Soldati, Owner/ Producer

Chiara Soldati is a fifth generation winemaker and the driving force behind La Scolca, the Northern Italian vineyard acquired by her great great-grandfather in 1919. La Scolca is particularly renowned for its iconic Gavi Dei Gavi®, the white wine considered Piedmont’s jewel in the crown.

Highly driven and motivated, Soldati throws her heart and soul into all of her endeavors, from her athletic triumphs as a world class downhill skier, (sailing, golf, diving) to promoting tourism in her native region (president of Piemonte Movimento Turismo del Vino association for 6 years) and sustaining women’s rights, up to her current role as director and worldwide brand ambassador of La Scolca wines since 1995. In 2005, she was awarded by Italian Ministers of Agriculture, Italian Woman of Agriculture.

During her childhood, Chiara spent much time on the vineyard grounds accompanying her father Giorgio and absorbing his wisdom and pioneer spirit in regards to rigor, perfectionism, curiosity and fearlessness – traits that have served both father and daughter well in conserving and protecting the Soldati tradition while keeping pace with the future. Chiara formed a strong bond with the land and grape cultivation at an early age, which influenced the direction that her life would eventually take.

After completing her studies in Law, she taught Marketing and Communication at Capttolica University of Piacenza. Under Soldati‘s leadership La Scolca has enjoyed a considerable increase in brand awareness in Italy and abroad, and a remarkable commercial expansion worldwide.

Chiara Soldati is a rarity in the male dominated wine industry, a woman at the helm of a historic vineyard and a pioneer in the improvement of women’s roles in the working world. She has held positions in numerous associations dedicated to women’s issues, including “Donne del Vino” and ONILFA, and has advocated education and training for women in order to broaden their potential career choices and to facilitate the achievement of their personal goals. One great challenge is also to support Airc, a national association that provide funds for cancer research.

As a mother, Soldati has experienced first hand the challenges that all mothers face in the workplace. For this reason she is particularly sensitive to these issues and has implemented female-friendly conditions at La Scolca, supporting childcare and flexible hours for her 50% female staff, allowing them to successfully balance family and career.

When not circling the globe and managing La Scolca’s interests worldwide, Soldati is dedicated to her greatest passions – her family, sports, friends and culture . She is never too tired to learn, to work and to discover.
