Monte Zovo


: At the entrance of the Adige valley, at the northern end of the province of Verona, sits the the Monte Zovo winery. For four generations the Cottini family have cultivated grapes on these rolling hillsides, with Carlo Cottini founding Monte Zovo back in 1925. In the 1950s, Raffaello, son of Carlo, built his first winery in Fumane, Valpolicella, to concentrate solely upon wine grapes. From this initial 20 hectares, the property has grown to some 140 hectares, with holdings in in eastern Valpolicella, Tregnago, and Sirmione, as well as the Civaie estate where they source the fruit for their Lugana wines. Over the years, the family has honed their expertise in grape cultivation and winemaking, passing down their knowledge. Today, management of the estate is still a truly family affair, with Diego Cottini and his wife Annalberta overseeing operations, while their sons Michele and Mattia take care of the winemaking and marketing/communication, respectively. The Cottini family utilise the concept of “The 4 letter Cs” to represent the keystones of their eco-sustainable philosophy at Monte Zevo: Care. Consciousness. Constance. Concreteness.
