Podere Beghetto

“The best gifts are given by the earth, and we thank it by preserving the purity of its bounty”

Paolo Menozzi

Podere Beghetto is a family owned and operated vineyard in the small hamlet of Gargallo, located just outside of the city of Carpi in the heart of the province of Modena. For generations, we have been dedicated to the cultivation and harvesting of grapes, and now have taken our passion and experience and focused it into the creation of a natural wine. The combination of traditional and modern innovation allows us to offer a quality product which embodies respect for the land and its enhancement.

Our History

In 1943 Nonno (Granpa) Augusto, driven by his love for the countryside, fulfilled his dream of leaving the city center behind and settled in the picturesque hamlet of Gargallo. An old Osteria by the name of “Tre Pêchi”, located in Via Beghetto, was lovingly restored to become the family home and the adjacent vineyards provided the family with their own homemade wine. As the quantity of wine produced was more than enough for the family’s needs, Nonno Augusto began to sell his own bottles in the local village shop.

Three generations after Nonno Augusto first began making wine; his grandson Paolo Menozzi has dedicated himself to keeping the traditions of his grandfather alive. By placing value on the social and cultural importance of wine, as well as adopting improved biodynamic and organic farming methods, his hope is that the spirit of  Nonno Augusto’s dream lives on in a product that stands out on the market.

Land and Vineyard

The vineyards extend over thirteen hectares of silty soil. Since 2019, production has progressively moved towards total organic processing and well known biodynamic farming methods are used during both cultivation and production.

Vines currently present on the estate are; Lambrusco Salamino di Santa Croce, Lambrusco di Sorbara, Grechetto Gentile, Lambrusco Oliva and Lancellotta all of which have an average age of between 10 to 12 years. Vines are espaliered using the Guyot system while thinning and green harvesting operations are carried out in the summer months in order to safeguard the best bunches and ensure optimal grape production and ripening.

After careful selection, all of our grapes are harvested by hand and as our product does not undergo mechanical filtration, nor is there use of enological adjuvants at any point in our winery, the quality of our final product is optimal.
