ABOUT US

Menti Giovanni family winery was settled by Menti Giovanni  at the end of XIX century in Gambellara. Giovanni started to work volcanic soil and cultivate garganega grape, fruits, legumes and vegetables destined for his own family needs.

After Second World War, his son Antonio started to take care of management, improving the quality production of grapes, and started making dry and even sweet wines.

In 1964, his son Giovanni also called Gianni, who started bottling Gambellara, Recioto di Gambellara e Vin Santo di Gambellara, around 70’s, officially substituted Antonio.

Since 2002, Gianni has been working together with his son Stefano , who has been immediately interested in biodynamic agriculture.

In 2004 the company started organic conversion of all vineyards (even  without certification) and started building part of now days sales structure for national distribution.

In 2010, the company started to work in line with biodynamics which gave great quality results to all steps of production process, and during the following year the company started the organic certification process.

In 2012, after ten years of membership in “Gambellara wine producer association”, Stefano decided to leave and do not produce d.o.c. wines more.

In the same year, exports in Japan and United States started.
