Consorzio Montecucco

Consorzio Montecucco

Founded in the year 2000 by a visionary group of farmers, the Consorzio Montecucco is the beacon that illuminates the path for the safeguarding and promotion of the illustrious Montecucco DOC wines. These founders were not only cultivators of the vine but also nurturers of a shared belief - that the seeds of true and substantial growth are sown through collaboration and shared vision.

The Consorzio Montecucco, birthed from the zeal and dedication of its twenty founding members, has evolved into more than a regulatory body. It stands as a guiding star for the territory, becoming a pivotal center of reference and engagement for the vibrant fabric of production in the surrounding areas.

Daily companionship and support for the producers, relentless activities promoting the Montecucco brand, and meticulous attention devoted to quality assurance at every transformation phase of the product are among the cornerstone factors that have garnered trust from local companies. Over time, this circle of trust has widened to embrace some of the most eminent winemaking houses in the nation.

Embarking from a modest beginning with a handful of producers and a few thousand bottles, the consortium has experienced a remarkable journey of growth and development. Today, it boasts a significantly larger family of consortium companies, collectively producing over a million bottles of exquisite wine.

Despite the diversity among the producers, a golden thread of commonality weaves through them - an unwavering respect for the countryside and its bountiful produce. This deep reverence fosters a harmonious symbiosis between man and nature. Whether large or small, every participating company consistently directs attentive care throughout the grape production phases, cognizant that the origins of great wine are cradled in the vineyards themselves.

In the cellar, this conscientious approach is mirrored, whether through the adherence to traditional methods or the adoption of modern but non-invasive techniques, all converging to present the consumer with a wine that is a true and honest reflection of the territory. This territory, simultaneously close yet distant from the well-trodden paths of mass tourism, retains its authenticity, offering a genuine experience that captivates and enchants its visitors.

In recent years, there has been a growing consciousness among the Montecucco companies towards safeguarding the integrity of their beloved territory. This heightened awareness has led to an increased adoption of organic farming practices, which currently constitute a significant majority of the total production, underscoring a commitment not just to the craft, but also to the land and the environment that makes it all possible. The Consorzio Montecucco, therefore, is not just a consortium; it's a symphony of shared values, quality, and respect for the timeless tradition of winemaking.
