Name of winemaker in photo
 
 

Giovanni Menti was founded at the end of 19th century in Gambellara. Giovanni, the grandfather of the current owner and winemaker, started producing wine for his own personal consumption. Since then the estate has grown into one of the most progressive estates of the Veneto.

The estate is farming 7.5 hectares of Garganega and Durella vines in the hills of Gambellara and Lessini. The viticulture is organic using biodynamic methods, an approach they follow in the cellar by relying on only natural yeasts and using low levels of sulfur. They are committed to channeling the characteristics of their volcanic soils into their wines.
