The Nosiola grapes of Vigneti delle Dolomiti Nosiola Le Frate Pravis are cultivated on the steep slopes that overlook the lakes of Toblino and Cavedine, on the characteristic terraces, called “friars” at an altitude of 450 meters on calcareous marl soil with south-west exposure. After a delicate pressing of the grapes, the fermentation takes place in steel tanks at a controlled temperature. Vigneti delle Dolomiti Nosiola IGT “Le Frate” Pravis matures in steel tanks for about four months, and is then bottled.
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.
