Podere Pradarolo can be found in the hills of Parma in the Ceno Valley between 250 and 500 meters above sea level. The holding is made up of a total of 60 hectares, of which only 5 are cultivated as vineyards. The winery has been certified as organic since 2004.

The fact that the new European regulations for certified organic wine allows almost all of the processes used in industrial processing, has led us to choose our own rules which are characterized by the total absence of the use of SO2, the use of indigenous yeasts, the absence of any form of filtration, clarification, stabilization of various types, and any form of manipulation such as sweetening or the concentration of the must.

The grapes are made into wine at a free temperature with long maceration, ranging from 30 days to 9 months and more. After maceration, the wine is usually aged in large oak barrels and then bottled.

The two sweet wines are obtained by drying on the ground on blankets exposed to the sun.

The vines are typical of local tradition and are the Aromatic Malvasia di Candia (white grape) and Barbera, Croatina (Bonarda), Termarina (Corinto rosa) for the red grapes.
