Pratello was founded in 1860 and is located on the southwest side of Lake Garda towards Brescia. It is important for the Azienda to deal with the environment, which is why they have been making wines from organically grown grapes since 2004. The total vineyards and olive trees are grown organically. After following a biological path, Pratello has created a unique working protocol. Consciously dealing with nature, not only by using natural products for the soil and in the cellar, but also by respecting the biodiversity of the ecosystem. This is called the Pratello Idea.
In addition to diversity in the organically grown vineyard and BIO architecture, 'Pratello Idea' stands for: reducing copper use in the vineyard, the synergy between animals and plants and lowering the amounts of sulphite used.
As owner Vicenzo Bertola himself points out: it was an inescapable choice suggested by our philosophy of life. Pratello produces a fine range of wines, focused on grapes typical of the area: rebo, manzoni, gropello and turbiana. Very convincing wines with expression and terroir. Winemaker Emiliano Rossi (Cá dei Frati) is highly regarded and experiments with new winemaking techniques in combination with the use of natural yeasts.
