PAIRING Perfect with Italian cuisine
Al di là del Fiume (beyond the river) started in 2006 as the brainchild of husband and wife Danila Mongardi & Gabriele Monti. Their farm is located in the area in front of the Monte Sole Regional Park in Marzabotto, just outside of Bologna, Emilia Romagna. They created a multifunctional biodynamic agricultural organism with productive, educational, recreational, artistic and therapeutic activities aimed at the wellbeing of man and the environment. The farm consists of three hectares of vineyards, one hectare of vegetable garden, half a hectare of ancient fruits, one hectare of ancient cereals and half a hectare of traditional medicinal plants.
They run their 27 hectares of land as a cultural and spiritual escape, offering biodynamic farming classes, art tuition, cooking classes, a sanctuary for ideas and those wanting to slow down and reconnect with nature.
These wines come from a diverse and rich farm where wine is just a part of the balance of what they do. Each wine we have seen from this incredible cosmic team has been simply breathtaking, pure and energetic.
