Who are we?
For four generations the Maffei family is passionately dedicated to viticulture and apple production.
In 1987, we began to use our best Chardonnay grapes to produce a Brut sparkling wine, founding a small winery at our farm in Cortina sulla strada del vino. Instead of using the usual classical method of secondary fermentation in the bottle, we decided to make use of natural Charmat fermentation, to best preserve the primary aromas of our grapes.
Our sparkling wine "Maffei Brut" immediately became a revelation for lovers of the genre, due to its pleasant tasting and the enthusiasm of owner and oenologist Giorgio Maffei. A limited production of 15,000 bottles a year, allowed us to focus entirely on quality.
Taking advantage of our experience over the years, in 2012 we started to apply the same method of Charmat fermentation to apples of our production. Thus was born IDUNA, the very first apple spumante.
