This invigorating drink made from wine and coca leaves was born in 1863 in Bastia and was invented by Angelo Mariani, pharmacy technician. 
Fascinated by the coca plant and its virtues, he went in Paris to continue his work. He will cultivate it in a greenhouse at 10 – 12, rue de Chartres in Neuilly-sur-Seine and infuse it in wine…
Its beneficial preparation did not take long to have its effect: at the time this wine was prescribed as medicine by doctors to combat the flu, nervous conditions, anemia and impotence.
She achieved even greater fame in the United States than in Europe and toured the world!
Faced with this success Angelo Mariani opens offices in London, New York and Montreal. 
He experiments in its greenhouses with new techniques for improving and acclimatizing the plant and publishes its studies in medical and pharmaceutical libraries in France and the United States.


Angelo Mariani received multiple recognitions and illustrations from the best artists of the time, which he recorded in fourteen albums. 
It also distributes the testimonials of numerous personalities praising the benefits of its wine in newspapers and magazines. 
Among them we find presidents of the Republics, ministers, marshals and generals, popes, sovereigns, composers, artists and actors, sculptors, painters and writers.

In homage to Angelo Mariani, this great benefactor, patron and philanthropist, thethe house brings back its famous coca wine where we find a decainized plant whose benefits are preserved. 
You will be able to taste it and appreciate it, in a real centenary collector's bottle dating from the 19th century, in limited edition!
