LAND AND VINERY

The winery has two main properties, for a total of 30 hectares, one sited in Montebello county in the heart of Gambellara DOC area, the other on the sun drenched Colli Berici (Berici Hills) area between Lonigo and Alonte.

The gently sloping sides of these hills have always been prime ground for the making of great wines, originated both from autochthon varieties and international vines, thanks to the optimal sun exposure, the unique microclimate and the singular geological soil composition of the area.

Taking advantage of this magnificent environment, preferring the traditional espalier growing technique with low yield per vine, our job is to perfectly blend land, vines and skills to create these inimitable wines.

THE FRUIT

The winery's philosophy is centred on the valorisation of our local varieties, such as Garganega in the Gambellara area and the Tai Rosso in the Colli Berici.

From here starts he ambitious project to revaluate the Tai Rosso, commonly known as Grenache, as the symbol of Mediterranean culture and viticulture.

The Garganega grape, of ancient Greek origin, has always been grown in the Gambellara region, as papers dating back to 500 B.C. demonstrate.

Having clear in mind the great historic heritage, our aim is to maintain this millenary tradition unaltered, enriching it with technolocical innovation.

The particular affection fot the Garganega grape has induced us to produce one of the most ancient wines in the Veneto region: the Gambellara Vin Santo DOC, a great withered wine.

Of more recent cultivation are international grapes such as Merlot, Chardonnay, Sauvignon, and Cabernet, which DOC in the Colli Berici is the oldest in Italy.
