History

The members of the Tamellini family have been vignerons for three generations. The estate is managed by the two brothers Gaetano and Pio who make wonderful Soave DOC and Soave Classico DOC  from 26 hectares of Garganega. This grape variety finds its natural habitat on these hills due to the composition of the soil, the excellent exposure and the mild climate.
The practices in the vineyards are strictly environment friendly: integrated insect and disease control is followed. Copper and sulphur base products are utilised in prevalence. No fertilizers are used. Natural cover crops (grass cover) are left on the aisles between the rows of vines. The soil is not tilled and the turf is left in place. The use of insecticides is substituted by the “sexual confusion” practice .
The cellar was built in 1998 and all the wines are vinified and matured in steel.
Gaetano and Pio now also make a delicious Spumante Metodo Classico (100% Garganega and made with the traditional method).
