The wine production and trading house "Tamborini Vini" in Lamone (near Lugano) in the Swiss canton Ticino was founded in 1944 by Carlo Tamborini. Today it is headed by his son Claudio. The vineyards cover about 32 hectares of vineyards in several vineyards. These are Tenuta Terre di Gudo in Gudo, Tenuta Vallombrosa in Castelrotto, Tenuta Sanzeno in Lamone, Vigneto Ai Brughi in Comano, Tenuta San Rocco in Porza and Tenuta San Domenico in Neggio. The Tenuta Terre di Gudo is located in the Sopra Ceneri, the other wineries in the Luganese region. All wines are vinified in the winery in Lamone. The income from own ownership results in about half of the production, the rest is purchased from contract winemakers.

The historic wineries include not only the Castello di Morcote (in Vico Morcote) but also the Tenuta Vallombrosa (in Castelrotto). This winery is the real "cradle" of the Merlot del Ticino. Thanks to the mild and balanced climate, the Ticino Merlot was planted here for the first time. The flagship of the house is "San Zeno Costamagna CRU". Other premium wines are the red wine blend "Terre di Gudo Rosso" (from Merlot and Carminoir), the "Comano" (from Merlot) aged 12 to 18 months in barriques, the "San Zeno Riserva" (Merlot), as well as the Burgundy-style vignified "Vignavecchia" of more than 40-year-old Merlot vines. It will also grappa (from Merlot, aged for five years in a wooden barrel), olive oil and honey produced.
