Vintage characteristics: First vintage of the Obardi blend that takes its name from Antonio Obardi, the historic Corte Quaira vine-grower.

The balanced nature of the 2013 vintage made possible the creation of this unique blend. All the grapes were vinified together in a single fermentation so as to obtain a unique and complex wine.

Giovanni Montresor ( the owner)  has always been a sort of second home. My family has in fact worked with wine for 150 years and, in the past, its members have often been pioneers in vine-growing and wine production.

After initially being employed by a large Veronese wine company, I felt a strong need to work in close contact with the land and my vines. So, thanks to my determination and the invaluable support of my family, the Corte Quaiara project took shape, becoming once more – vintage after vintage – a fully-fledged wine-producing domaine.

When I decided to give new life to Corte Quaiara, I realised that I wanted to make wines that were able to express who I am. I wanted to produce wines in which you can smell the scents of the earth, of the grapes becoming must, and of the vats in which the wine matures. I wanted those who drink my wines to savour each phase of the production process, so I learnt all about it, from the vine to the bottle.

In my wines you can find my full identity: the strain on my back; my hands, stained with earth and grape juice; and my pleasure in seeing, enclosed in the bottle, the realisation of my initial idea. Today I am a vigneron.
