The Menti winery is now on the fourth generation of winemaking in Gambellara village in the Veneto region. The winery was begun by Menti Giovanni at the end of the 19th century. It all began with the Garganega grape, along with other agriculture like fruit, legumes, and vegetables. Giovanni decided to cultivate volcanic soils there, knowing perhaps that they would prove to be fruitful. Fast forward to the current generation upheld by Giovanni’s great-grandson, Stefano focuses on biodynamic agriculture and started converting all vineyards to organic growing in 2011. The following year, Stefano decided to no longer bottle his wines as DOC.
This is a Garganega coming from the volcanic hillsides of Gambellara in Veneto. This wine is a fresher example of Stefano’s Garganega. It is aged in cement with natural yeast, then ages in tank for one year.
