The winery, located at the heart of the medieval village of Pratello, is completely underground, with one newly-built section for fermentation and bottling operations and the other, older section where the wooden casks are kept for the ageing of the older vintages.
Equipped with cutting-edge technology for optimum grape processing, the winery also satisfies the criteria for organic certification. Only and exclusively grapes from the family farm, Lugana and Valtenesi are processed here.
Tradition and innovation are the underlying principles of the Pratello philosophy. Tradition is reflected in the names and use of native grape varieties (such as Turbiana, Manzoni Bianco, Rebo, Groppello and Marzemino), and in respect for nature's rules. Innovation, on the other hand, lies in research into the latest methods of vineyard management and vinification techniques.
