illa Corniole was born in the valley of Cembra, “heroic viticulture” of Trentino Alto Adige. The history of Villa Corniole, a producer of sparkling wines, has for a long time been for generations of farmers who have built and modeled, with commitment and integrity, one of the most beautiful landscapes of Trentino, the valley of Cembra. In this alpine valley of unrivaled beauty and of great wine tradition, they produce extreme wines on a unique soil that identifies mountain habitats.
Ice and water forms the Adige valley and at the foot of the sunny cliffs of Paganella and Mezzacorona, the plateau of Rotaliana, in the hamlet of Mezzolombardo, is a land rich in minerals thanks to the Walnut that rises from the Brenta Dolomites and puts Down the valley the essential components.
In this favored land the indigenous Teroldego variety, first D.O.C. In Trentino, obtained the title of Prince of Trentino wines; But Lagrein and Pinot Grigio have also found the perfect ground for expressing their sensory characteristics.
What drives us is the constant desire for innovation, the passion for viticulture, determination and care for our land that, with its fundamental terraces, returns harmonious visual visuals. The dry stone walls, the connecting paths with the various vineyards, form and characterize a landscape of rare alpine beauty: the monkeys of the Dolomites, the forests and the peaks of rural life. The viticulture of the Cembra valley is a form of landscape protection, precious for the territory.
The Pellegrini family is an ambassador of such beauty and majesty thanks to the work and the care of the land in the production of Trentino wines. Looking at the precise picture of the fields of the Rotaliana plateau, the sedimentary rocks of Paganella and Monte Mezzacorona and the sinuous Avisiane hills remind us of the precious minerality and fertility of the plain of alluvial origins.
It is in the valley of Cembra, in the mountain cellar, that Villa Corniole makes its wines from hand picked grapes in the vineyards located in the valley of Cembra and on the Rotaliana plain.
Villa Corniole is a family project that aims to reconstruct and reinvent the ancient tradition of winegrowers. Villa Corniole is a quality guarantee that begins in the vineyards and continues in the cellar with winemaking techniques specially designed to interpret every variety of grapes and allow each wine to express the Terroir.
All grapes are selected and selected in the valley of Cembra and in the Rotaliana plain.
The wines of the cellar of Villa Corniole evolve and turn into the slow pace that nature in the valley of the Cembra imposes: mountain wines that assimilate a unique soil given by the climate (slow-wines wines slow) that must evolve slowly to express And maintain their potential and organoleptic characteristics.
From the vineyard to the cellar we allow the rhythms of nature to better express every type of wine, preserving the original grape characteristics.
Villa Corniole’s winery was designed to achieve the ideal temperature for keeping wine and blending harmoniously with the surrounding landscape. Most wineries are in fact underground.
There are adequate spaces and equipment (refrigerator rooms, temperature control system) designed to maintain the quality of the grapes during vinification: the gravity force also allows you to get the must directly into the tanks without the help of pumps. There are also several containers to store the wines to bottle at the right time.
The view from the cellar is unbelievable: on the one hand we can see the summit of Monte Bondone, facing Paganella and a little further on the right of the Brenta Dolomites: the lower at the foot of Monte Corona the famous terraces supported by dry stone The walls , To avoid erosion, are planted with screws.
