Dalle Ore is a family estate in the hills of the Veneto in Northern Italy.
Meeting Marco Margoni Dalle Ore and his daughter Benedetta at Raw Wine in 2019, we sensed that this was the beginning of a great partnership. Marco's deeply philosophical approach to farming and winemaking shines through in his wines. He is the fourth generation to tend land in the Veneto town of Trissino where he envisions viticulture as a form of community service. They grow grapes with the utmost care and without any harmful chemicals. Further, they make all of their wines naturally and without additions.
