Cantina Beato Bartolomeo is a cooperative at the foothills of the Alps, in the Veneto. On Valentine’s day, in 1950, one hundred and twenty-one wine farmers from the Breganze district joined forces to create a new agricultural coop. They appointed Giorgio Laverda as their first president, and decided to name the coop after a local figure, who for centuries had deserved a mention: Bartolomeo da Breganze, 13th century friar and bishop. The Winery of Beato Bartolomeo da Breganze was thus created. The coop currently boasts around 700 members, and has spent the last few years on improving every aspect of the production. Its agronomists advise members on varieties to be planted, growing techniques, pruning, and yield reduction.
Farming/vinification practices: sustainable. The wines are vegan.
