The grapes of the Vigneti delle Dolomiti Gewurtztraminer Cros del Mont Pravis are cultivated in the locality of Cros del Mont di Lasino at an altitude of 500 meters on dolomite soil, calcium and magnesium carbonate with south-west exposure. The harvest is manual in a box with selection in the vineyard; after a cold maceration of about six hours, the grapes are gently pressed and fermentation takes place in steel at a controlled temperature. The Vigneti delle Dolomiti Gewürtztraminer IGT “Cros del Mont” Pravis ages in steel tanks for about five months and is then bottled where it will finish for 4 months.
The Pravis 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, Pravis winery is intended to be a new and simple symbol of the hardworking peasant culture, a symbol of the territory, to sanctify the identity of the community but above all of our philosophy of producing wines.
Every phase of the process of transforming grapes into wine at Pravis respects a natural idea of winemaking. Using 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 allowing the natural elements of the wine to aid our intuition in the winery.
