Andrea Fiorini Carbognin
Garganuda is Andrea Fiorini Carbognin’s project in Soave and Valpolicella. Importantly, Andrea is Stefano Menti’s brother-in-law. As wine is a family affair at Menti, Andrea has helped at the winery for many years, gaining valuable experience that informs his own farming and winemaking practices at Garganuda.
Through this work, Andrea was able to find small parcels of vineyards that he could transition to Biodynamic farming with the guidance and help of Stefano.
Like all of the Menti vineyards, Garganuda is farmed without chemicals and is on volcanic soil. The trellised vineyard is populated by a meandering flock of sheep, whose grazing controls weeds between the rows and contributes to the microbial health of the soils without compacting them.
