Tenuta Monte Gorna is a family business dominated by a pure passion for the land and for wine, a passion that has been handed down from father to son for three generations. The second generation was responsible for the restructuring of the land owned, entirely replanted with vineyards. The third generation has the task of continuing in the wake of growth and quality and of making the volcanic wines of Tenuta Monte Gorna known to the Italian and foreign public.
