GIVING A VOICE TO OUR HISTORY AND BRINGING IT TO LIFE
Emilia Wine’s estates are part of an area whose special geographical conformation has been considered especially well suited to vine growing since Roman times. From the Correggio, San Martino and Rubiera plains to the hills of Arceto, Scandiano, Casalgrande and Albinea. The climate is especially well-suited to winemaking with ideal day/night time temperature differences and the right amount of rain.
The main grapes grown are varieties of Lambrusco, on plain and low hill vineyard sites. A native grape variety, Spergola, has also found its ideal habitat here with soils with significant amounts of clay mostly to be found in the hilly areas around Vezzano sul Crostolo, Albinea and Scandiano.
The various components of the Emilia Wine Group focus especially on the many native grape varieties traditional to the area we work in. A front rank role in this is certainly played by the large Lambrusco family. Emilia Wine has been focusing on little known clones and types for some time now and has set up a project whose purpose is to recover and promote these in partnership with Istituto Agrario A. Zanelli.
Spergola, a white grape variety native to the Scandiano area, is a further jewel in the group’s crown, especially its sparkling version, thanks to Casali Viticultori and the Arceto winery’s lengthy traditions and expertise in this field.
