Cantina di Colognola Ai Colli
On the 26th June 2008, following up a long winemaking tradition, the consortium Collis - Veneto Wine Group was established, with its head office and administrative headquarters based in the town of Monteforte d'Alpone. 'COLLIS', the Latin word for 'hill', represents the ideal environment for quality wine production and reflects the common territorial denominator of the vineyards of two of the founding partners, the Cantina di Colognola ai Colli and the Cantine dei Colli Berici di Lonigo, Barbarano Vicentino e San Bonifacio. The third founding partner is CEVICO, an important consortium with head offices in Lugo di Romagna in the region of Emilia Romagna. The two partners from the Veneto region have conferred all their assets relating to production into Collis, now the sole owner of the production facilities, including the vinification and storage plants, while the original wineries maintain their custody of the land and relations with the grape-growers, taking delivery of the grapes from their members and conferring them immediately into Collis, which is then responsible for the vinification and sale of the finished product.
