The mission of Montemaggio is quite simple: we aim to produce very high quality wines, which are highly connected to the land where they are produced. Therefore, we like to stay small as we are, in order to be able to control every plant we have and every bottle we make. Our wines are a 100% hand-made special product that you will recognise as soon as you open the bottle.
Fattoria di Montemaggio is the result of the passion, love and dedication of all the people that so far have worked here every day and it is also the dream come true of two women: Valeria Zavadnickova, the young owner of the Fattoria, whose passion for wine has brought her to learn everything about it and transform this passion into a real job, and Ilaria Anichini, an agronomist and the director of the winery that has worked here since 2005.
It is not a coincidence that the image and logo of Montemaggio are represented by a young Etruscan woman with a basket of grapes on her head. Marina Zimoglyad had the idea and took inspiration from the painting created by her husband Andrey Remnev, who is a well-known and much appreciated Russian painter.
Moreover, Fattoria di Montemaggio preserves its land by respecting the land and its rhythm and following the organic principle in agriculture, in order to allow our customers to really appreciate the natural taste of our organic wines. During the harvest, grapes undergo a very strict selection in the vineyards, and after, in the winery. Production is completely hand harvested and only when the berries are fully ripened.
Our wines are irrevocably connected to the “terroire” they have been grown on and have absorbed the tastes of wild forest around it. We try to use as minimal barrique as possible in order not to contaminate the taste of the wine with a flavour of wood.
Moreover, the wines at Fattoria di Montemaggio are aged and refined in the bottle for a long time. It is a process that requires a lot of patience, but in the end gives rise to a product with a very unique taste. As our wines contain no chemical additives, they are indeed also healthy and easy to digest.
