My winery stands on land of volcanic origin, the acidity of which encourages vine growth, producing a wine with unique, structured and lingering aromas. In fact, my vineyards grow between walls of hardened lava flows that split the landscape, creating true works of art of nature. In the past viticulture was not widely practiced in the valley, preferring to grow wheat. Instead, people would plant vineyards on the hillsides, mainly for personal use and mostly consisting of vines “married” to trees.
Already in those times, the Durella vine was at home here. This viticulture started with the arrival of the Romans; local documents (the Custozza Statutes) dated 1292 speak of a variety called «Duràsena», which must have already been widely grown and which gave rise to the Durella we know today. The valleys of the Lessini mountains were also marked by the passage of the Cimbri, a Germanic people who settled in the mountains in the Vicenza area in the Middle Ages.
