The Company Malavasi adopted as a philosophy of producing a program of improving the quality of its wines in a sustainable and reduced content of sulfur dioxide.
The Company’s products of Malavasi are created with the intent to excite the three senses of vision, smell and taste in harmony with the unique characteristics of an area suited to viticulture for its calcareous clays that transmit minerality and a climate influenced by the proximity of the lake that enables higher temperature enhancing the aromas, the end result is amplified by a vine (Turbiana) which characterizes and identifies with its scents and flavors the beauty of the land where it was born
For 4 generations the family Malavasi is devoted to agriculture and especially viticulture.
Since the nineteenth century, in the early days of the industrial revolution, the great-grandfather Tita produced wine, mainly used for payments in kind to the 50 families who worked for him in the company fund.
In the following years viticulture acquired an increasingly important role in the family business and started the production of wine for sale to the public
After vinification and procedures of pressing, the grandfather Callisto used to lay the stalks into the well to flavor the water.
Great was the feast in the court and the participation of the whole family and the settlers, as it has always been the greatest value of brotherhood that always occurs in memory and in family life of Malavasi
