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.
