The Wines of Marco Bonfante
Following the passing of their father, Marco and Micaela opened the winery Marco Bonfante in 2000. Since then, the family has a long lineage of producing wines, dating back eight generations in the Piedmont region of Nizza Monferrato. The siblings share the tasks of running the estate with Marco winemaking and handling sales production while Micaela oversees administration for the business.
Nizza Monferrato, also called Nizza della Paglia which translates to 'in the countryside' is located in the Province of Asti in the region of Piedmont and is rich in vineyards. The vineyard is 23 hectares. The quality of the grapes is imperative and a thinning method is used to reduce the production per plant to show the true potential of wines made in southern Piedmont. Marco's wine making philosophy is one many appreciate, he produces wines that reflect his personal taste and palate.
"Our white wines are dry, fruity, mineral but without ageing in wood casks. They have to mirror the main features of the grape varietal which we try to exalt in the "selections". Our red wines are also dry and fruity, with a big strucure of the wine, without being predominant. The sweet wines, Moscato and Brachetto, according to the tradition are fresh, fruity, and sparkling."
