Monte del Fra’:
Monte del Frà translates as “Hill of Monks” and is located in the heart of the Bianco di Custoza DOC. It now consists of over 65 hectares of vineyards is owned and run by brothers Eligio and Claudio Bonomo. It is one of the most progressive and dynamic producers in the region and has been particularly innovative in its adoption of modern viticultural techniques.
Eligio Bonomo was the first producer in the region to retrain the traditionally 1.6m high cordon vines to lower-trained, single guyot systems. In the winery the Bonomos use thoroughly modern, clean and temperature-controlled fermentation and storage facilities in order to preserve the aromatic freshness in their wines. They produce very good-quality wines which are clean, display excellent purity of fruit and are elegant and well balanced. With 55 year-old indigenous/native vines from Custoza in Verona region, the Bonomo family’s winery is currently run by the 3rd generation of winemakers. They combine tradition and ancient estate wines with modern winemaking technology.
Located in Verona area of Italy, Monte del Fra is a family business started in 1958 by the brothers Claudio and Eligio Bonomo. High quality and excellent prices is a prerogative of this family today well known on reviews and by critics as one of the most representative of the Verona area.
In between Garda Lake and Valpolicella classica, the family manage today an area of 200 ha, Claudio as winemaker and Eligio as expert agronomist still work in the winery together with the sons Massimo (winemaker), Marica (export manager) and Silvia (hospitality manager). The farm is a modern winemaking cooperative with magnificent barrel, fruit and wine storage facilities. The dynamic Marica is a worthy ambassador for her wines.
