Pergolino

Pergolino Logo

The two Pergolino wines are made at the Cantina Valpantena co-operative, situated in the Valpantena, northeast of Verona.

Known as the 'valley of god' to the ancient Greeks, this area is well-known for its high quality red wines, due partly to the soils but also because of the cool breeze that blows down the vally from the foothills of the Dolomites.

Run by Luca Degani since 1995, the Cantina di Valpantena is now one of Italy`s best co-operatives, with 700 hectares of vineyard producing excellent quality fruit.

Matt Thomson makes some of the Alpha Zeta wines here and has worked closely with them since 1999. The Torre del Falasco range is also produced here.
