Monte del Fra Az. Agr.

Monte del Fra Az. Agr.

This winery is just by the road from Sommacampagna to Custoza, easily visible from afar, thanks to a large cross atop the adjacent vine-covered slopes. Although the Bonomos farm and manage over 178 hectares of vines and markets its wines around the world, they still manage to maintain that friendly family-business feel. The two brothers share the work in the vineyard and the cellars, and their wives handle the sales side. Silvia, one of the daughters, looks after the visitors to the winery and organises wine tastings, and Marica is the marketing expert, spreading the word about the wines of Monte del Frà around the world.
