In the early 1900s during the inception of the winery, the tributaries of the Po River served as very important shipping channels. A section of the river that borders the winery was once a location that merchant ships would turn and sail back in the opposite direction. Cantina della Volta, or winery at the turn, signifies a turning point for ships, as well as a turning point for the direction of Lambrusco.
Cantina della Volta manages vineyard sites throughout the Bomporto area. All of the property is under the watchful eye of Christian, so obsessed with quality that he employs folks from Franciacorta to harvest only the best bunches of grapes.
The focus here is always on Lambrusco di Sorbara. Christian and is father always believed in the elegance of this specific Lambrusco, knowing that it had the natural acidity and aroma to result in ageworthy, beautiful sparkling wine.
He and his father also planted a small plot whose terroir mirrors that of Champagne, with chalky limestone soils where they planted Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
