About C.V.L.T. coop.agr Zanolari

C.V.L.T coop.agr Zanolaril is a biodynamic farm that specialises in wine production. The owner, Marcel, believes in respecting nature and in restoring vitality and vigour to the earth, rather than depleting it like most farmers do. His vineyard is located in Bianzone, in Valtellina and his love of nature enables him to produce wonderful wine in this harsh area.

The diligence of Marcel Zanolari and his father Giuliano permitted the vineyard to grow to 10 hectares of cultivated land with Nebbiolo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot nero, Pinot Bianco, Traminer.

Because of the particular cultivation methods the weather plays a vital role in the growth of grapes, causing a lot of worry. Despite this, Marcel has been able to prove that good results can be obtained by working with passion and respect for nature. He has always avoided making poor ethical choices and prefers to respect nature at all costs rather than following new trends that could harm the natural balance of his vines.

Marcel's commitment to respecting and valuing nature and helping his grapes grow naturally, without trying to change the unique characteristics of each year's yield, has brought much satisfaction to his work, along with prestigious international recognition and many happy customers.

We decided to become a B Corp because of the close affinity of our values and those of this wonderful community.

We believe that we should be part of a movement that strives to improve the world and protect the planet and its people, seeing as we do our best to protect and vitalize nature every day on our farm.

B Corps are a family that cares for the planet, and we could not miss out!

The Change We Seek®

As part of the B Corp movement C.V.L.T. coop.agr Zanolaril seeks to share their knowledge of biodynamic farming and help other businesses to understand how crops can be grown without going against nature, but working with it instead. They aim for harmony in nature, where their produce is beneficial and healthy to the planet and to the people.
