Gelmino and Cristina Dal Bosco started Le Battistelle in 2002, prior to that Gelmino’s family had worked their vineyards for decades, selling grapes to the local co-operative. Their home and cellar is in Brognoligo and all of their 9 hectares are split among smaller plots in the hillside outside of the old village. This is a more remote part of the Soave region, where old vines of garganega (some over 100 years) are terraced on steep volcanic hillsides, earning the designation of "heroic viticulture" for the incredible amount of work required on such a rugged landscape. Gelmino and Cristina’s children, Andrea and Gloria, help run this small family business. They only work with the garganega grape, fermenting in stainless steel without malolactic fermentation. The result is clean, mineral forward wine with lovely texture from time spent developing on the lees, perfect with seafood or a creamy pasta dish or just because it’s sunny out.
