Maeli- Winery located in Veneto Italy growing autochthonous grapes of the Euganean Hills
Maeli winery is situated in Veneto Italy. The winery prides itself on growing autochthonous grapes of the Euganean Hills. The main focus at Maelis is the Fior D’Arancio, which is the local name for the Yellow Muscat grape. From this grape, the wine makers at the estate make five different wines: the sweet sparkling Fior D’Arancio, the dry still Bianco Infinito, the raisin wine called Diloro, the sparkling classic method called Dilà, and finally the Dilì, which is produced using the second fermentation method following ancestral methods.
All of these wines are made using 100% Yellow Muscat grapes. Most of the Yellow Muscat vineyards are situated on Monte Pirio inside the Euganean Hills National Park in the heart of Veneto. Here nature is at its best with incredible views overlooking the lagoon of Venice on one side and the Dolomites on the other. The landscape is also made of rich vegetation of holly oaks, strawberry trees, broom trees, prickly pears, dog rose shrubs and wild blackberries.
Factors responsible for producing Excellent Wines
The main feature of Maeli wines is the extraordinary salty-mineral imprint given to them by the ancient volcanic origin of the soil.
This soil is unique in that it is made of layers of marl and silt. The vineyards of Maeli that are located on trachytic soil are where the red grapes are grown. These grapes include the Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cermenere varietals. The identity of the territory in which Maeli winery is located has always been at the forefront of the activities of the winery. The variety of the land, the steepness of the hills, the varying aspects of the vineyards, the nuances of the micro-climate, the temperature ranges as well as the rich vegetation, fruit trees and olive trees make up the natural environment in which Maeli expresses itself through its wines.
