Monteforte is a cooperative situated in the east of Soave, with 1200 hectares both inside and outside the Soave Classico zone. Many of their vineyards - including Montegrande - are situated on hillsides facing south and south east, producing riper and fuller wines than many of their contemporaries. Matt Thompson, renowned kiwi, winemaker and previous IWC 'White Winemaker of the Year' works with Gaetano Tobin to produce the coop's wines.
