Le Mojole winery, founded in 2002, is situated in Tagliuno di Castelli Calepio in the province of Bergamo, an area belonging to the Lombardy region (in the northern part of Italy) which is very well known for an excellent red wine whose denomination is Valcalepio.
Le Mojole vineyard stretches on a hill for about three hectares, including one hectare of wood. Entirely exposed to the sun, the hill is devoted to the cultivation of grapevine and hosts olive trees as well.
Mrs. Marta Mondonico personally manages the winery, and her story in the world of wine is intertwined to her love for her husband, who bought the property for passion, but did not have any time to run it. At the time, Marta didn’t drink any alcohol and knew very little about wine. She started studying a lot and chose her staff carefully. The very first harvest of Le Mojole brought her a good and awarded wine. Marta went on in her research for top quality and her motto became "Good and healthy wine comes from neat and looked after vineyard". Care, passion and a highly professional approach are Marta’s strategies.
The mission is the production of a high quality wine: that’s why generally the harvest is about 600 to 700 kilos per hectare, even if the disciplinary allows to harvest until 170 000 kilograms of grapes. In the yield of Le Mojole's approximately 8.000 bottles per year, deep attention is paid to the prevention and care of grapevine, because everybody at Le Mojole thinks that a good and high quality wine has to be healthy at first.
The harvest is made by hand according to the natural ripening of grapes that are immediately carried to and worked in the cellar, avoiding any pause that could produce disagreeable fermentations. The wine making process is slow and meticulous, made under the control both of an oenologist and a chemical analytical laboratory.
