Maso Warth, Heart of Moser estate, is located near the village of Gardolo di Mezzo, where an amphitheater of vineyards overlooks the town of Trento. The fields lie on the hills above Trento and on the terraces of the Cembra Valley, where Chardonnay grapes are sourced for the Trentodoc sparkling wines.
Cembra Valley is marked by steep slopes, terraces, dry stone walls, high altitude between 400 and 700 meters, wide temperature fluctuations, sudden weather changes. Vineyard orientation, a crisp night air that descends from the mountains above and the porphyritic and limestone soils – all these elements make sure the production of unique and strongly characteristic wines. These factors make the valley a place of hanging gardens where wine-growing has found its ideal home.
Maso Warth, facing South West, is a sunny balcony covered in vine rows, enjoying the temperate breezes offered by the “Ora del Garda” wind blowing north from Lake Garda and with a splendid panoramic view over the town of Trento. This is the heart of the Moser winery and estate.
The Moser Trento estate, established in 1979 thanks to Diego and Francesco, is today a modern and innovative winery whose origins are rooted in the farming tradition of the Moser family.
Diego and Francesco Moser were born in the 50’s in Palù di Giovo within a farming family of twelve brothers. Family of modest background and with a strong farming identity, they start working in the vineyards as teenagers and learn the relationship with the land and farm animals. For them life as a project to be fulfilled through dedication and diligence, responsibility of one’s property and hard work.
The steep slopes of the Cembra Valley, demanded that all work be carried out by hand, the heavy baskets full of freshly-picked grapes be carried on one’s shoulders, the fields be ploughed with heavy ox-driven ploughs in an era when the means for using modern machinery was a privilege few could afford.
Thanks to their resolute dedication, the first bottles were produced in the 70’s, small batches of wine using the typical varieties grown in the Cembra Valley such as Chardonnay, Müller Thurgau, Nosiola and Schiava grapes.
