About the Producer

The fame of Folonari is due to its exceptional skill in selecting vineyards and grapes for producing wines of consistent quality and guaranteed authenticity. Its Pinot Grigio, Soave, Chardonnay and Merlot are distributed throughout the world.

Vineyard

The grapes are harvested from selected parcels of recently planned and planted vineyards in the Veneto and Trentino regions; the vines are trained largely by the Guyot system and partly by the “pergola trentina” system. Modern clones and stocks were carefully selected to optimize yields in relation to the microclimatic conditions of the area and consequently to the desired organoleptic characteristics of the wine.

Vinification

Harvesting takes place around the end of September and is carried out utilizing both some of the most up-to-date methods of mechanical harvesting and traditional hand picking. The different grape varieties are pressed separately, after which a skillful blending takes place before proceeding with fermentation. This is done in order to best highlight the individual characteristics and contribution to the blend of the individual grape varieties.
