Le Fraghe


Matilde Poggi was born in 1962, the third of six children, and she grows grapes and makes wine in Cavaion Veronese, in the heart of the Bardolino production zone. Her first harvest was in 1984; prior to that year the grapes were sold to another winery. Even as a young child she remembers hearing the conversations about vines and wine, and she can recall those Octobers, when they went right from school to harvesting the grapes.

This world, marked by the changing of the seasons, has always fascinated Matilde, and the desire slowly grew in her to become part of it, to contribute to it, to learn how to listen to the vineyard and to the land, to bring forth from them her own wines. She had no ready-made furrow, and so she was able to experiment with grape varieties, training methods, and blends, with the result that she currently now has 28 hectares of vineyard, planted mainly to the Corvina grape.

Matilde loves the countryside all around her, the land that has been her companion every moment of her life: Monte Baldo rising up so majestically to the north, Lake Garda with its uniquely Mediterranean climate, the Valdadige that conveys the cools winds from the north. She loves this earth, every square metre of it somehow different, brought here by the glaciers that carved out, in remotest times, the the bed of the lake and the valley of the Adige river. Everything that she does in the vineyard is aimed at respecting and preserving those unique and literally incomparable qualities that she finds only in her wines. Matilde is grateful to her father, who gave her the opportunity of living here and of exercising stewardship over this land. It is her hope to be able to hand it over some day to her three daughters and to have them pass it on to their children.
