THE COMPANY AND ITS HISTORY

Mont’Albano was founded in 1985 in the heart of the Friuli Venezia Giulia region, as a result of the intuition of Mauro Braidot who, unlike the majority of the producers of the time, converted his 5 hectares (12.3 acres) of vineyard to organic production.
The company did not take long to grow, thanks to its philosophy and its excellent wines from Friuli, so in 1998 the winery was expanded to form Mont’Albano sas (a limited partnership company).
In addition to its own grapes, it began processing grapes grown by other producers, provided by trusted regional producers who respect the strict guidelines that Mont’Albano demands so as to be able to put its brand on its products. 

In 2008, Mont’Albano sas became part of the ‘Sartori di Verona’ group, thus establishing the company Mont’Albano S.p.A. sp. By combining its expertise in organic production with the experience of the historic Verona-based winery, which had already been engaged for some years in an organic viticulture project, the product range was expanded to allow the Mont’Albano brand to offer wines from the Veneto to its customers, as well as wines from Abruzzo and Sicily produced by companies belonging to the Sartori group.

Today, the functions of logistics and administration are carried out in Verona, the wines are produced by certified ‘organic’ winemakers, in compliance with the institutional parameters promoted by the relevant authorities and fostered by Mont’Albano which, in the various regions, carries out surveillance with regard to legal standards as well as checking that producers comply with principles that Mont’Albano has constantly promoted over the past 30 years. The parent company of the project, Mont’Albano Agricola, is still operational in Friuli, where it crafts a range of niche wines that represent the company’s flagship products.

PHILOSOPHY

Doing what you believe in and spreading faith in the sustainability of organic viticulture is not a type of agriculture that represents a return to the past; it is innovation that combines today’s technology with the experience of the winegrower who wants to preserve and not exploit the land, using natural – not chemical – products, thereby preserving the flavours and typical characteristics of the product. The healthiness of the wine in the glass is guaranteed by means of traceability along the supply chain and the absence of chemical residues that are, in fact, banned in this type of viticulture. We do our best to promote our territory, cultivating grapes with excellent organoleptic qualities and safeguarding the typical varietal characteristics that determine the personality and distinctiveness of the wines.

The tipical varietal that determine the character and the specificities of the product in the glass.The question of ethics is fundamental, and is guaranteed by the achievement of SA8000: 2008 certification with respect to all the Company’s stakeholders, from suppliers to distributors, who receive the guarantee of a reliable and constant service, with full protection of workers’ rights.

ORGANIC VITICULTURE AND CERTIFICATION

Why does certification exist?

To give further assurance to the consumer who cannot know the nature of the wine-producer’s operational standards at close quarters.

Having certification must constitute a form of recognition, a seal of approval to be placed proudly on the producer’s products. Often as not, certification is seen purely as a bureaucratic process, while for us at Mont’Albano, this view is mistaken, a commonplace that tends to confuse the complexity of the procedures with the importance of the recognition.

Obtaining certification is certainly an arduous process not devoid of obstacles and technical complexity, but the ability to provide guarantees to the customer – and first and foremost to ourselves – that the route we have taken is the right one fully compensates for the effort incurred.

Our company chose to seek certification for purposes of clarity, transparency and the innate sense of ethics that guides us in our work.
