The "Fratta Minore" Winery was designed by architect Romano Miti, who shared and supported the owners’ idea to build a new production facility while fully respecting the environment and the land morphology.
The Winery perfectly blends with the hilly landscape, surrounded by its vineyards.
Fully insulated and equipped with a thermal-insulating covering, the winery relies on photovoltaic panels for most of its electricity needs and on a heating system based on pellets/wood/vine runners.
The winery is a three-floor building:
- The mezzanine floor hosts the winery store and the tasting room where local produce matched with Fratta Minore wines can be enjoyed in a peaceful and comfortable space (booking is requested);
- The wine-making process takes place on the ground floor, which contains the temperature-controlled vats, steel storage tanks, a small-sized laboratory, the central heating plant and the administrative office; the heart of the cellar can be seen from the first floor;
- The basement hosts a cellar where wines are aged in barriques and tonneaux, then matured in the bottle. Here the second fermentation of Spumante Metodo Classico bottles takes place. The surrounding land guarantees minimum temperature changes all year round and suitable humidity rates for wine storage.
