The Gini family is one of the oldest of the area going back as far as the 1500s. Documents of the 1600s and 1700s were found stating purchases of land and of vineyards (the cru Salvarenza is mentioned) confirming that this has always been a family of vignerons. Claudio and Sandro now manage the estate after their father Olinto left us a few years ago., and Matteo, Sandro’s son, is now working full time at the estate, mainly in the cellar. All the 25 hectares of Garganega vineyards of the estate stand within the Soave Classico appellation. The historical vineyards of Froscà and of Salvarenza have always belonged to the family. Other vineyards, with an excellent position and with old vines, were purchased in the 1980s: these are the vineyards of Foscarino, Montegrande, Casanova (all three with volcanic topsoil) and of Volpare. Froscà is the name of the hill where the crus of Froscà (on the top of the hill) and of Contrada Salvarenza (in the central-middle part of the hill) are located. The topsoil is volcanic while the deeper part of the soil is calcareous. The oldest vines are in Contrada Salvarenza (from 60 to 100 years old), one third of the vines are prephylloxera and consequently ungrafted. The hills of Monteforte boast the highest vineyard density in Europe, in fact vines are grown on 95-96% of this area. The cru of Col Foscarin, 4 hectares of Soave Classico from which the grapes for the homonymous Recioto are selected, is at the back of the Froscà hill. Only natural practices are followed in the vineyards and in the cellar. From vineyards standing on the hill of Mirabello, on the border of the Soave area, Campo alle More (100% Pinot Noir), Maciete Fumè (100% Sauvignon Blanc) and Monti Lessini DOC Sorai (a blend of Chardonnay, Durella, Riesling, Incrocio Manzoni and Trebbiano di Soave) are produced.
