The farm Monte is located in the immediate vicinity of Lake Garda, in the winegrowing area Veneto, where Mr. Kofler grows his red wine Bardolino and white wine and prosecco Garganega.
He dispenses with chemical-synthetic pesticides and fertilizers and uses instead grape varieties that are resistant to fungal infections. Important in bioremediation is the defoliation: in a well-lighted foliage, the fungal spores germinate worse.This means a lot of manual work.
Mr. Kofler foregoes maximum returns. The careful handling of soil and plants also affects the pressing. Mr. Kofler let his grapes getting crushed, pressed and bottled at the organic wine cellar "Le Tende" close to Cavaion Veronese. So the organic wine can be guaranteed.
