Ep. 1971 Giulia Stocchetti interviews Lamberto and Lodovico Montresor | The Next Generation

Welcome to Episode 1971 in which host Giulia Stocchetti interviews Lamberto and Lodovico Montresor  this week on The Next Generation. Two brothers, fifth generation of Ottella wine producers, working together making different Lugana expressions, enhancing its complexity, versatility and ageability. All of that, in a family-run winery that combines modern art, architecture, sustainability, biodiversity and nature on Lake Garda.  

More about today’s guest

The Montresor family has been at the helm of Ottella winery for four generations. The company was started by Lodovico, father of Francesco and Michele, a wine entrepreneur and passionate collector of artworks. In the book "The province of Verona and its wines, 1900", the historian Giovan Battista Perez testifies how the Montresor family was, in 1905, the only one to produce Lugana in the Verona area.

In 1964 Lodovico Montresor, together with Professor Michele Vescia of the University of Brescia and the engineer Turlini, had the intuition to design and delimit this very precious area called Lugana, giving it its own geographical conformation and its own identity. The result was the birth of the Lugana appellation three years later, in 1967.

In the mid-eighties, Ottella acquired new impetus when Francesco, freshly graduated in law, joined his father. Francesco Montresor, President of the Lugana Protection Consortium from 2007 to 2013, was then joined in 1993 by Michele, current president of the Venetian Winemakers Association.

In 2013 the project for the new winery began: a unique place, intended to represent the values of the company, the love for the vineyard, the landscape and art. Ottella today is a 90 hectare reality in Lugana.

Lodovico and Lamberto work alongside their father and uncle in the company… from father to son: past, present and future. A beautiful Italian story!
