The Pratello farm is located in the marvelous Morainic Hills, a stone's throw from Lake Garda. Strolling among the narrow village streets, you'll find breathtaking views. The complex is surrounded by nature and comfortably enveloped in the peace and quiet that can only be found here.
And it's this very contact with nature that's one of Pratello's delights: far from chaotic city life, guests can regenerate and fully embrace the sensory and gastronomic experience of a guest house with strong ties to its land. Staying here is not merely synonymous with relaxation and wellbeing: at Pratello a large proportion of the food and drink comes either from the farm itself or from local producers. The concept of "zero food miles" and of care for the environment, combined with management by the family, completes the picture of a place where you can recharge your energy, find yourself and enjoy authentic food and wine.
Our company's growth in recent years has led us to distribute our wines in more than 60 countries around the world, always placing them in the most sought-after outlets. Pratello was one of the first firms to obtain organic certification, but today, 13 years later, this is no longer enough. For over a year we have been working on the idea of leaving organic certification behind and creating our own code which will take into consideration not only the use of natural products in the fields and the winery but also respect for the biodiversity of our vineyards' ecosystems. This method will be based on the use of renewable energy sources, environmental compensation, energy efficiency in the vineyard and synergy between animals and plants. We will focus our attention on the production of organic substances to better nourish our soil. We'll call it the Pratello Method. Despite our company's commitment to guarantee the goodness of our products, in a limited number of cases ongoing analysis has revealed traces of residual substances. Today, the overall picture leads us to inform our clients of our intention to withdraw from organic certification for the coming vintages. Passion, soul and pride are the sentiments behind this new project.
