La Montecchia

The La Montecchia estate has belonged to the Emo Capodilista family since the Middle Ages; it is located in the Villa Emo Capodilista, at the foot of the Colle La Montecchia. The estate cultivates 30 hectares of vineyards, in the heart of the Colli Euganei DOC, between Selvazzano, with its historic vineyards, and Baone. Today it is managed by Count Giordano Emo Capodilista. The cultivation benefits from the climate moderated by the sea: the wines produced there stand out for their power, refinement, and elegance.

La Montecchia

The longstanding bond with the territory has led the Emo Capodilista family to embrace an eco-sustainable approach, avoiding the use of chemical substances in the vineyard and using clean energy in the cellar. For this reason, they have recently won the EcoFriendly Award for their commitment to projects aimed at protecting the territory and the vineyard, and for implementing plans aimed at energy saving.

Finally, for the production of environmentally friendly wines, respecting the health and well-being of consumers.

Veneto

Grapevines have been cultivated in Veneto since the 7th century B.C., perfected by the Romans and continued in the Middle Ages. With Venetian domination from 1405, viticulture almost completely covers the territory, and Veronese wines, thanks to the Adige River, reach Venice. What sets this region apart from many others is the continuous commercial success of its wine products. From the late 18th century, the region experienced a crisis. However, the following century saw a qualitative leap in Venetian wines, also driven by the establishment of the Società Enologica Veronese in 1872. The first edition of Vinitaly took place in 1967.

Veneto has a complex wine production chain. Important areas include the Colline del Garda Veronese and Valpolicella, with Bardolino Superiore DOCG and Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG. Worth noting is the interregional Lugana DOC, between the provinces of Verona and Mantua. In the volcanic hills between the provinces of Verona and Vicenza lies the area of Soave Superiore DOCG, Soave DOC, and Gambellara DOC. The Colli Berici DOC, south of Vicenza, is known for its reds based on international varieties and Tocai Rosso. The Breganze DOC area, north of Vicenza, is renowned for its reds and whites based on Vespaiola grapes. In the Paduan area, there are the Colli Euganei with the Moscato Fior d’Arancio DOCG, while to the south lies the Friularo di Bagnoli DOCG. In Treviso, we find the Prosecco DOCG and the Colli di Conegliano DOCG. At the borders with Friuli is the Lison DOCG.

The presence of mountain ranges, hills, and vast plains provides significant temperature variations, mitigated near Lake Garda and along the coast. Veneto is therefore rich in diverse wines, made with both native and international grape varieties that find a second home here.

Colli Euganei

Veneto is the leading wine-producing region in Italy; it's extremely rich in indigenous grape varieties, including Garganega, Trebbiano di Soave, Prosecco (or Glera) for white grapes, Corvina, Rondinella, Molinara, Raboso, and the lesser-known Turchetta for black grapes. Among the non-native varieties, some have found the perfect terroir among the Colli Euganei, such as Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.

The Colli Euganei are of volcanic origin, rising in the Po Valley near the cities of Abano Terme and Montegrotto Terme, mentioned as early as the 1st century AD by Martial, who wrote about the "Euganean hills with hillsides painted and quilted with vines."

Today, there are about 2500 hectares of vineyards registered under the Colli Euganei DOC denomination.

Depending on the cooler or warmer exposure, the grapes destined for sparkling and still wines, white or red, vary; they are young and fruity in the predominantly north-facing slopes, and more structured with reserve wines on the south-facing slopes.

These volcanic hills, famous since the time of Martial, produce Colli Euganei DOC wines, fresh in the north and structured in the south.
