Salvatore Ferragamo S.p.A. has filed a lawsuit against Ferragamo Winery and Vince Ferragamo, a former Los Angeles Rams and Green Bay Packers quarterback, for trademark infringement and dilution of the “Ferragamo” mark. Salvatore Ferragamo S.P.A. v. Ferragamo Winery, No. 16-3313 (S.D.N.Y., filed May 4, 2016). The fashion company asserts that it owns two trademarks to “Ferragamo” for use in connection with wine, which it produces at a Tuscan estate. The former football player owns and operates Ferragamo Winery in California, and the complaint argues that he and his company have ignored repeated cease-and-desist demands. Salvatore Ferragamo alleges federal trademark infringement, cybersquatting, trade dress infringement, trademark dilution and unfair competition claims, and it seeks damages, an injunction preventing further use of “Ferragamo” in regard to wine production and an order directing the winery to destroy infringing products.
