Pravis life and vines have turned into synonyms in our lives
We work surrounded by nature to appraise the heritage resulting from hard work and challenges posed by the varying seasons, which have gradually become intertwined with our lives of growers. Unique and unmistakable, based on life’s simplicity. We have been growing wine grapes for over forty years. Friendship, rather than our work as winemakers unite us, three grape growers. Life and vines have turned into synonyms in our lives and the need to work in harmony with our surroundings
is a fundamental feature of our activity. The environmental framework of our work is made of mountains and lakes, medieval castles and rural landscapes: the foundations of a winemaking culture which forms an integral part of our rural culture.
Earth, rock and wind
Our winery is completely excavated underground and rises into sight, completely surrounded by calcareous rocks and exposed to the sun and the wind that warms our entire valley. Seated at the foot of Castel Madruzzo, our winery is intended to be a new and simple symbol of the hardworking peasant culture, a symbol of our territory, to sanctify the identity of our community but above all of our philosophy of producing wines. This is derived from dedication and spontaniety. Every phase of the process of transforming grapes into wine at Pravis respects a natural idea of winemaking. We use the least technology possible: our grapes, once pressed, flow with gravity into fermentation tanks, then into barrels, then finally into containers for pre-bottling with patience and we allow the natural elements of the wine to aid our intuition in the winery.
Rows of vineyards suspended between lakes and Brenta's sky
Vineyard-covered slopes surrounded by slabs of stone, crystal blue lakes and the steep walls of the Dolomites, gently swept by the Mediterranean wind: this is where our wines are produced. Pravis wines are mirroring the features of the Alpine environment: the soil where the vines take root and the territory where the history of the people of Trentino has developed. Numerous small vineyards scattered on the sunny slopes of the mountains that separate Trento from the lower Sarca Valley, between the Brenta Dolomites and Lake Garda. Endless rows of vines, tended with care in the luxuriant valley, as well as at higher altitudes, up to the highest altitude vineyards.
Each parcel of vineyard is planted with Vitis Vinifera according to its unique microenvironment, thus completing this magical connection between the land, the plant, and the grape growers. Rows of vineyards suspended: between the blue of the lakes of the Garda basin and the clear sky above the Brenta Dolomites
An agreeable climate soothed by the Ora wind of Garda, a wind full of life and perfumed with wines. Tradition and innovation stand together in our vineyard
We believe that to best interpret our oenological future it is best to appraise the knowledge of the past.
