The story of a family, a territory, a way of life.
Winemakers since five generations
From passion to profession.
Our family has been cultivating vines for two centuries, passing this passion down from generation to generation.
Tenuta Tarcisio Maule was born in 2019, a project that aims to pay homage to work of our predecessors and give value to the wonderful land of Selva di Montebello.
Our philosophy: tradition, innovation, and respect for the environment.
We respect our territory and its fruits.
Alongside our traditional vines such as Garganega and Durella, we are cultivating innovative resistant vines that allow us to reduce phytosanitary treatments by 80 percent.
At the time of harvest, the grapes are carefully selected and hand-picked in order to best preserve their characteristics. To maintain the integrity of the bunches, they are delicately placed on special boxes for the transport to the estate.
In the winery, the winemaking processes combine tradition with innovation; using historical techniques such as the drying of grapes in Picai, and new technologies, such as cold control to enhance the aromas of our wines.
Naturally strong vineyards
Resistant vines are special varieties that show a particularly high resistance to fungal diseases, developed with the aim of combining the resistance of American vines with the oenological qualities of European varieties.
Unique soils that give a strong character to our wines.
Selva di Montebello, together with Gambellara, is characterized by unique soils.
Geologically it is an area of volcanic origin, with basaltic soils, mostly in the form of earthy and brittle tuffs , particularly favorable to the cultivation of the vine for their natural fertility and the high mineral content, which are responsible for the extraordinary accents of the wine.
For more than a millennium the vine has been cultivated in our areas. This is confirmed by the discovery in Montebello Vicentino of the remains of a Roman villa from the 1st or 2nd century with vines and abundant grape seeds.
Strategic geographical position.
On the border between Vicenza and Verona, halfway between Lake Garda and Venice. A unique climate, perfect for the cultivation of vineyards.
Selva di Montebello, in addition to being in an extremely convenient position to reach, offers a suggestive landscape and totally devoted to the cultivation of the vine. < / p>
