The wine production and trading house "Tamborini Vini" in Lamone (near Lugano) in the Swiss canton Ticino was founded by Carlo Tamborini in 1944. Today it is run by his son Claudio. The vineyards cover around 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). Tenuta Terre di Gudo is in Sopra Ceneri, the other wineries are in the Luganese region. All wines are vinified in the Lamone winery. In-house earnings account for around 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 in barriques for 12 to 18 months, the "San Zeno Riserva" (Merlot) and the "Vignavecchia" vinified in Burgundy style from Merlot vines over 40 years old. It will also grappa (from Merlot, stored in wooden barrels for five years), olive oil and honey produced.
