The farm of Gelmino and Cristina Dal Bosco is situated in the hamlet of Brognoligo, in the heart of the Soave Classico production area.
The winery was founded in 2002, after the family stopped selling their grapes to a local wine Cooperative and started their own wine production. The estate includes 9 hectares of vineyards divided in many small areas all located in the hills of Brognoligo. The largest united vineyard is called the “Battistelle” situated on the “Castellaro” hill and the winery derives its name after it. It is here, between high and pebbly hills with the soil of volcanic origin, where the vine-growing tradition dates many years, and grape variety Garganega matures and expresses its unique qualities at its best.
Le Battistelle uses 100% Garganega for their Soave wines; the grape that allows to create wines with well balanced acidity and minerality evolving into something quite remarkable over time.
