Cultivation of grapevines in the Bergamo region, and in particular in the Isola Bergamasca, dates back to the Roman colonization period, while some historian antedate it even further back. Significant logging was done in wooded hilly areas as well as in the flatlands to make room for grapevines.
From the age of the Romans to the present, much has changed: the landscape, the way of producing wines and tastes have slowly altered over the centuries.
Isola Bergamasca, in recent decades, has intensified the cultivation of grapevines and wine production, as have all of the foothill areas of the province of Bergamo. The hills of Mount Canto (referring to the towns of Ambivere, Mapello, Sotto il Monte, Carvico and Villa d’Adda) are where some of the most notable Valcalepio DOCG wine estates are located. Dr. Bruno Marangoni remarked on the widespread diffusion of vine species such as Barbera, Merlot, Negrara Trentina, Raboso Veronese, Sangiovese Grosso, and Albana in his 1950 publication “Note di viticultura bergamasca” (Notes on Bergamo-area viticulture).
In recent years, Isola Bergamasca wine producers have obtained excellent standards of quality, receiving numerous awards for producing Doc and Igt wines of enormous impact in national and international competitions.
While not reaching substantial quantity levels, wine production has become an activity which attracts not only enthusiasts but also tourists who come specifically to the places and natural spots in the Isola to taste the enogastronomical delicacies found there. Enjoying the tastes and fragrances of local wine at one of our wine producing estates is an experience not to be missed. You will be welcomed not only to taste unique wines but to enjoy the cordiality and professionalism of our warm and hospitable people.
