Acquired the Colli Morenici Winery


Valpantena Winery

On Sunday, May 26, the 320 members of our company and the 68 partners of the Ponti sul Mincio winery gathered for two extraordinary assemblies with a single theme of the day: the merger by incorporation of Cantina di Colli Morenici by Cantina Valpantena.

With almost unanimous vote, the merger was approved and the marriage, which will give mutual benefits to the two companies, brings with it a structure with a production capacity of 30,000 tons and another 35,000 of storage, now only partially used.

Furthermore, the store in Ponti sul Mincio - which alone currently represents half of the Colli Morenici winery's turnover - is located in a strategic position, just a few kilometers from Peschiera and Valeggio sul Mincio, an area of ​​interesting tourist flows. It will join the network of six stores of Cantina Valpantena and there will also be included Amarone, Ripasso and the other Valpantena wines particularly appreciated by tourists. Mantuan Lambrusco, Garda DOC sparkling wines, and other wines produced in the Monzambano street will therefore be distributed throughout the Verona circuit.

"In Cantina Valpantena - declares Domenico Gandini, outgoing president of Cantina Colli Morenici - we have found the ideal partner. A reliable company with a serious industrial project that will boost the commercial department while respecting the identity of our territory ".
With the integration of the two companies, the Board of Directors of Cantina Valpantena will add two seats representing the Mantuan territory, thus reaching 11 members, while the president will still be our Luigi Turco.

 

The company

Colli Morenici Winery is a social winery in the Alto Mantua area located in Ponti sul Mincio, a small town a few steps from the southern shore of Lake Garda, in Lombardy. Thanks to the morphology structure, the particular structure of the soil and the microclimate influenced by Lake Garda, this area is particularly suitable for viticulture.

The winery, founded in 1959, since its very first production in 1963 has dedicated itself to the production of quality wines, following strict protocols from the vineyard to the bottle. The winery currently produces the typical wines of the area such as Custoza and Lugana Doc, Merlot, Cabernet, Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio Garda doc, Chiaretto Garda Colli Mantovani Doc, to finish with Lambrusco mantovano doc.

We pass from still wines to sparkling wines to finish with passito, which want to represent the typicality and history of the local wine tradition, "with a touch of modernity and elegance of our times".
