Gaetano Tobin

Gaetano (or Tano for short) was born and bred in Monteforte, east of Verona.  He graduated in enology from the Conegliano Institute in 1983. He has worked at Cantina Monteforte in various roles since 1982, becoming Managing Director in 2001.With his extensive knowledge of winemaking in the area, Tano is also the Director of the Soave Consortium and advises various local wine related committees.

David Gleave and Matt met Tano through Luca Degani (of Cantina Valpantena). David had tried to work with Cantina Monteforte in 1992, as they were widely regarded then (as they are now) as the best co-operative for Soave.  The director at the time did not want to bottle wine; he was happy to sell everything in bulk.  When Tano took over as director, this approach changed.  At that time, the Alpha Zeta team were already working with Valpantena, so Luca forged an alliance with Monteforte in 2003.  The first thing Tano did was to take Matt’s advice and invest a considerable sum of money in a must chiller to improve the quality of his white wines

As well as sharing a commitment to producing quality, good value wine, David, Matt and Tano also share the love of a good risotto!
