Nicola, after years dedicated to the importation of Georgian artisanal wines and the selection of coffee and other products in Latin America, moved to Mexico, and it is here where Michele, a longtime friend, visited him and proposed to reorganize Michele's grandfather's winery and vineyards, located in the municipality of San Nicola dell'Alto, in the Ionian part of Calabria. The two begin to work to create a real ‘marani’ (Georgian-style cellar) in the country, and the MENAT project was born, with the first vintage 2018. an additioon of friend Gianni Lonetti, a passionate winemaker of the area, and with the following year another friend Roldano Bitto, cook and oenologist.

The conception of winemaking learned in Georgia and the choice to apply a serious biodynamic thanks to the help of the agronomist Michele Lorenzetti are the basis of the project. Three wines produced up until now all gathered together by the lightness and from the ease of drinking, a reference point for the wines of the group, which is why they opt for the total absence of exogenous products, including sulfur, maintain a fully biodynamic practice and use imported Georgian Kvevri. - Minum Selections.
