The Cooperative, La Collina, resides in Reggio Emilia, the heart of the Emilia Romagna. This region is home to Lambrusco, the tri colored Italian flag, and Parmigiano Reggiano! The story is unexpected; back in 1975, twelve young men joined minds and hearts to begin a cooperative of both agricultural ambitions and humanitarian efforts. The project was aimed to draw in those with drug problems, rehabilitate them through the rewards of biodynamic farming, and reap the benefits of incredible wine, cheese, and other produce. The winery is, in essence, a result of community collaboration far ahead of its time in the hills of Emilia Romagna.
Founder of La Collina, Enea, managed to make a dry wine that’s biodynamically farmed, more aromatic than the nearby Prosecco wine, and still delivers quality way above its price point. This is a dry, aka “Secco” sparkling Malvasia. Enea uses frozen grape must to help kickstart the fermentation naturally, and boost the aromatics of the resulting wine. Drink by itself or with charcuterie!
