We are a family-run winery between past and future sharing great respect for the environment.
It was founded by Gian Mario Monchieri and his wife Silvia who share a great respect for nature. In 2008 they decided to contribute to the recovery and enhancement of the land at the foot of the Concarena in Camonica Valley, traditionally a wine growing area.
In order to reduce the impact on the environment the building is mainly underground and based on a self-sufficient energy approach, with a system to recycle rain water, built using local material such as wood and stones.
Inside the winery we employed the most modern wine-making techniques for the grapes processing combined with respect of tradition.
The varieties Merlot, Marzemino and Chardonnay were planted in 2009, and the vineyard was widened in 2012, reaching the present 3 hectares of cultivated land.
This natural charming place hosts the premises, the winery and the vineyard fitting harmoniously in the landscape of the Valley.
Respect, la sustainability and direct relationship with our customers are the basic assumptions we consider for every choice we make.
We started planting the vineyard recovering an area since years abandoned.
We continued building the winery beautifully embedded in the sloping land, using local material, becoming nearly autonomous in terms of energy and water supply.
Tradition and innovation
The agronomic and oenological choices are respectful of environmental sustainability and safeguard the peculiarities, aromas and tastes of the local vine varieties.
We stick to tradition but we keep up with modern wine-making techniques.
