VILLA CORNIOLE was born in the Cembra valley, “land of heroic viticulture” Trentino Alto Adige. The history of Villa Corniole, a winery producing still and sparkling wines, comes from long ago, from generations of growers who have built and shaped, with commitment and integrity, one of the most striking landscapes of Trentino, the Cembra valley. In this alpine valley of unparalleled beauty and of great viticulture tradition, they produce extreme wines on a unique soil, which identify the mountain habitat.
Ice and water shape the Adige valley and at the foot of the sunny cliffs of the Paganella and Monte Mezzacorona, the Rotaliana plateau, within the Borough of Mezzolombardo, it is a land rich of minerals thanks to the River Noce that rises from the Brenta Dolomites and brings down the valley the essential components. In this favored land the indigenous Teroldego variety, first D.O.C in Trentino, gained the title of Prince of Trentino wines; but also Lagrein and Pinot Grigio have found the perfect soil to best express their sensory characteristics.
What guides us is the constant desire to innovate, the passion for viticolture, the determination and care for our land which, with its crucial terraces, returns harmonious visual views. Dry-stone walls, the connecting paths to the various vineyards, form and shape a landscape of rare alpine beauty: the picks of the Dolomites, forests and glimpses of rural life. The viticulture of the Cembra valley is a form of protection of the landscape, invaluable to the territory.
The Pellegrini family are an ambassador of such beauty and majesty through work and care of the land in the production of Trentino wines. Looking up from the precise framework of the fields in the Rotaliana plateau, the sedimentary rocks of the Paganella and Monte Mezzacorona and the sinuous Avisian hills, remind us of the precious minerality and fertility of the plain of alluvial origins.
It is in the Cembra valley, in the mountain winery, that Villa Corniole makes its wines from grapes handpicked in the vineyards located in the Cembra valley and in the Rotaliana plain.
Villa Corniole is a family project which aims to redevelop and reinvent the ancient tradition of wine-growers. Villa Corniole is a guarantee of quality that starts in the vineyards and continues into the winery with techniques of winemaking specifically designed to interpret each different grape variety and allowing each wine to express the terroir.
