About Calalta

Calalta is a small farm located at the foot of Monte Grappa between 150-200 meters above sea level. With 5 hectares under vine amongst 16 hectares of olive trees, fruit trees, and ponds, the surrounding forest creates a natural oasis with a particularly favorable microclimate and wide biodiversity.

In the past, the Brunetti family sold their grapes to larger winemakers and produced a small amount of wine for friends and family. After a careful evaluation of the soil and sun exposure, the vineyards were replanted in 2009 in order to obtain the highest quality vines from the terroir.

Since 2017 the winery has been led by Nicola Brunetti and his wife Giulia Zanesco who personally take care of the entire production process, from field to cellar with a special focus on respecting the ecosystem and preserving the unique and authentic characteristics of Calalta’s terroir.

To improve soil fertility they do not use chemical products, rather they rely on green manure. Planting a variety of grass species and legumes which grow until blooming. This procedure helps nourish the soil and attract bees, pollinators, and ladybirds which fight harmful bugs. Their wines have little to no sulfites added and their winemaking process is young, fun, and continuously evolving.
