Vincent Candela's Wine Cellar

For a Frenchman who has been living in Italy for a long time, wine "must " undoubtedly play a leading role.

Being born and grown up on the gentle hillocks of southern France, and then moving to an estate between Rome and the Castelli Romani, constitutes in itself sort of a “wine imprinting": Vincent Candela knows and appreciates wine, he knows how to grow and taste it, so that he made it a hobby at first, but then he opened his own company, thanks to the extraordinary quality of the products of his estates, both the French and Italian ones.

Two styles, two very different yet expertly blended bouquets that are being offered to very demanding international customers worldwide.
From vines that provide the famous 360 and Grains de Sagesse in France, to the most exquisitely Roman and italian varieties, the products of our cellars are highly appreciated by connoisseurs and sommeliers. And the recent successes in the export witness the goodness of products, at every latitude.

A young and dynamic wine company, where the Candela family plays a starring role, without outsourcing strategic choices to third parties, as well as those of everyday's life: Vincent and Mara are in fact constantly in the "control room", personally supervising all stages up to the final product.
Because choosing to "make wine" is a serious deal, like any good Italian - and Frenchman – knows very well...

Biography

Philippe Antoine Vincent Candela was born in Bédarieux, southern France, on October 24, 1973, son of Jacques and Josette.
He has two younger sisters : Sophie, born in 1971 and Marine, born in 1989.

At the age of 5 he began shooting his first kicks at Maurin, his father Jacques acted as coach. He began his career as a striker. At the age of 8 he goes to Montpellier, where he remains until turning 16.

At the age of 10, while at Montpellier, Mr Pepe Hernandes foresees in him other features and places him in the midfield and then as Right fullback.

This is the position with which he's awarded his very first trophy by winning the French Championship U17. At the end of that season, with his contract expiring, he decided to give up with Football.

But his Dad, Jacques, did not give up, since he strongly trusts in Sports and in the qualities of his Vincent. He therefore begins sending Curricula all over France, until when a call comes from Toulouse, where Serge Delams, a former coach at Maurin, is in charge of the youth academies and remembers well Vincent, having trained him previously.

Here life and fate of Vincent Candela have a dramatic change: he plays as a starter, in his first season, with the Reserve Team, and has several opportunities to join the First Team. Then, in the 1992/93 season, comes his first contract as a professional and his first season in Ligue 1.

In his third year at Toulouse, Vincent is placed by Rolland Courbis on the left side, where he will spend most of his career.

His period with Toulouse is marked by his love for Rugby, too. In fact, Vincent used to train - whenever possible - with Stade Toulousain, one of the strongest teams in the world, where he gets to know true friends which are still in touch with him today.

When his contract expires, he is signed by Guingamp, who were just promoted in Ligue 1 and strongly willing to build a big project to grow. In 1996 Vincent Candela succeeds in being the first player, in the history of Guingamp, to join the French National Squad, where he wins a Bronze medal at the European U21 Championships, in Spain.

In January of 1997 he signs for AS Roma, thanks to the efforts of Giorgio Perinetti and Carlos Bianchi. With the "Giallorossi" side he is going to have his best sporting years, winning a League Title (Scudetto) in 2001, together with his close friend Francesco Totti, and soon after also the Italian Super Cup.

With the French Selection he is crowned World Champion in 1998, and then the European Championship against Italy, in the year 2000.

After the Scudetto he suffers a physiological mental decline. The certainties about his career are reduced, and in 2005 he begins to wander, at first with Bolton, then at Udinese, Siena and finally Messina, but he seems to have no more will to go playing football.

He officially retired from football on June 5, 2009, playing at the Olimpico in Rome a farewell game in front of over 40,000 spectators, in which former AS Roma Italy Champions faced the World Champions of France.

We are now at his present days, when the player stops his career and at the age of 40 decides to enter the business world as an entrepreneur.

Wine, Events, Youth Football, Charity: these are the fields in which Vincent Candela is involved, always with great professionalism, commitment and a touch of Humor that is peculiar to him and makes him a brilliant character. And definitely unique.

Foot Ball Club Alba Roma

Vincent Candela is back on the field with the Foot Ball Club Alba Roma - Accademia Roma, to give children the values of Sports Culture

The project of Accademia Roma Calcio - Vincent Candela has been set up in 2013, as an idea of the former AS Roma and French National player.

His love for football and his vast experience led him to get involved in such an ambitious and difficult project, especially given the historical period and the great economical difficulties for Italy.

But Vincent Candela is not afraid and started this wonderful adventure. Once identified the ideal location, in Via Mattia Battistini in Rome, the hardest task was that of forming a team with suitable managers and coaches for the idea that the former “Giallorossi” player had in mind.

A really great love for Football and Sport and a lot of experience gained on the pitches around the world as a professional, with the conquest of important Trophies such as the italian Scudetto with AS Roma in 2001 and the World and European Championships with France in 1998 and in 2000.

This cultural and sporting know-how is what Vincent Candela pretends to bring the children, with making them understand the importance of sport, of healthy eating, the culture of defeat even before the taste of victory, and the Fair Play rules and respect for the opponent.

These are the values that consitute the Accademia Roma Calcio - not the frantic search for a new champion, but mere and clean love for sport, in order to forge people for life rather that only for the soccer field.

"The work in this first year has been really hard and tough – explains Candela - but we are only at the beginning. The road is long but we want to build a major project for Rome and for children".

The Accademia Roma Calcio already has, in its first year, over 100 children enlisted, aged from 5 to 12. In the project there is also a Goalkeepers Academy, specifically designed for a really unique and special role, which form the children's behavior.

Particular attention is also given to dynamic activities, fundamental to all ages but especially for children in their early years as young sportsmen. Once a week, in fact, the guys meet some specialists of this scientific field.

Certainly, as of today this may perhaps not be the largest and best organized football school in Rome, but the commitment of everybody is high and the Accademia Roma Calcio aims to become – in the short term - a point of reference in the Roman panorama, for all those children and parents who will want to get involved in life through sport.

"I was lucky enough to do the best job in the world, the football player, so that I was able to experience extraordinary moments as well as very difficult times - says Candela - the important thing is to start doing sports with the idea of wellness and health, mental training of children and to provide them with a useful tool to deal with life. We do not build Champions sitting around a coffee table. The advice I can give to children is “to be children” as long as they can and have fun... And the advice I can give to parents is to give their children the opportunity to have fun through Sport".

Vincent Candela e la Nazionale Francese

"Con la maglia della mia Nazionale ho giocato una quarantina di volte, mettendo anche a segno cinque reti. Non potrò mai dimenticare alcuni episodi: innanzitutto l'esordio ad ottobre del 1996 contro la Turchia, poiché sono stato il primo giocatore del Guingamp (un piccolo club francese) ad avere l'onore di indossare la maglia dei Bleus.

Poi come dimenticare la straordinaria avventura del Mondiale 1998? Fu il primo grande successo del mio Paese in campo internazionale, e sento l'immenso orgoglio di aver fatto parte di quel gruppo straordinario che fu capace, dopo ben 209 anni dalla storica "presa della Bastiglia", di far riversare oltre un milione e mezzo di parigini festanti ai bordi degli Champs-Élysées!

Fu un momento straordinario, e ricordo perfettamente la mia emozione a bordo di quel pullman che ci portava in trionfo! Ci ripetemmo anche due anni dopo, con la conquista del Campionato Europeo. Merito, senza dubbio, di una squadra straordinaria, trascinata da quello che considero uno dei giocatori più forti che io abbia mai visto: Zinedine Zidane, mio grande amico anche fuori dal rettangolo di gioco".

La Cantina di Vincent Candela

Per un francese che da anni vive in Italia, il vino "deve" giocoforza rivestire un ruolo di primo piano.

Nascere e crescere sui dolci clivi della Francia meridionale, e poi trasferirsi in una tenuta tra Roma ed i Castelli Romani, costituisce di per sé una sorta di "imprinting" enologico: Vincent Candela il vino lo conosce, lo apprezza, lo sa coltivare e degustare, fino a farne dapprima un hobby, poi una vera e propria azienda, grazie alla straordinaria qualità dei prodotti della sue tenute, quella francese e quella italiana.

Due stili, due bouquet molto diversi tra loro eppure sapientemente miscelati ed offerti ad una esigentissima clientela internazionale, nei vari continenti. Dai vitigni che forniscono i rinomati 360 e Grains de Sagesse d'oltralpe, alle varietà più squisitamente romane o comunque del Centro Italia, i prodotti delle nostre cantine sono molto apprezzati da sommeliers e cultori. E i recenti successi nell'export testimoniano della bontà dei prodotti, ad ogni latitudine.

Un'azienda enologica giovane e dinamica, in cui la famiglia Candela gioca un ruolo da protagonista attiva, senza demandare a terzi le scelte strategiche e quelle del quotidiano: Vincent e Mara sono infatti costantemente in "cabina di regìa", controllando personalmente tutte le fasi fino al prodotto finale.
Perché scegliere di "fare vino" è una cosa seria, come ogni buon italiano - e francese - sa benissimo...

Company - Trentadue

The extraordinary and enviable career as a successful footballer has precise and very short time limits: the decade that goes from 30 to 40, and that usually marks the first significant successes in the life of a "normal" person, for an athlete often represents the so-called Indian summer.

Even an extraordinary Champion like Vincent Candela has not been able to escape this typical law of sport, and at age of 36 - the fateful boots hanging up - he has began planning the future for him and his family.

The choice of the brand and logo could not be different: in fact, 32 is the shirt number that has almost always marked his football victories, and "Trentadue" ("Thirty-two", in italian) is therefore his business card also as an entrepreneur.

A businessman with many interests and so many activities, starting with the organizing of events and ceremonies in his beautiful Estate "Tenuta dell'Angelica", through the production and marketing of wines (strictly Italian and French, and that could not be otherwise), the inevitable Football Academy (Accademia Roma Calcio) where kids stamp their first steps on the pitch, to the initiatives in the field of Charity, to which Vincent has always dedicated himself with generosity and attention.

All this together with a young and dynamic team of professionals, communications experts and business managers - Because "Trentadue" is a truly important number: a winner's number!
