Winemaker Alfonso Soranzo manages a
small property with his father in the Colli
Eugani. Soranzo, a horn player, decided to leave music five years ago to devote – body and soul - to viticulture. Helped by his father in the vineyards, he personally helms all the cellar operations. The family’s tiny estate is on one of the best plots of Colli Euganei, southwest of Padova. Colli Euganei, while certainly not a well-known appellation in the Veneto, is one of the best areas to grow vines in Italy. Volcanic soils with marl and
limestone, good aeration, mild constant
winds and average rains make it one of
the best growing areas in the Veneto. Particularly, the Vo area (western slopes of mount Venda) is the cooler and fresher of the whole appellation, giving finesse and balance.
Using biodynamic practices and ambient
yeasts, Alfonso crafts unique wines that
reflect the terroir of the Veneto.
