Veneto, Italy

Gambaellara resides on the border between Vicenza and Verona, on the last spur of the Lessini mountains that look like soft waves at an altitude between 250-350m covered by vines and lush valleys crossed by several waterways. An area of volcanic origin, with basaltic soils conforming more or less to the form of earthy and friable tuffs, which offer natural fertility, particularly favorable to wine-growing, and a high mineral content that gives the wine its extraordinary accents. The vineyard lands are currently cultivated around 1,000 hectares of predominantly hilly area, most of which are so-called "classic" region, the oldest area of provenance.

"This year [2017] marks 70 years since the foundation of Cantina di Gambellara, the first cooperative winery in the province of Vicenza, established in 1947..."
