About the Winemaker
Agricola Montenigo is a family business born a few years ago from our passion for agriculture, the territory and natural products. The company is spread over 30 hectares , of which 4 are cultivated with olive groves , 9 with vineyards and the remaining with a luxuriant and verdant wooded area.
Our dream and our life project began here, a few kilometers from the center of Verona, in the countryside of Valpolicella and are the fruit of love and respect for a mild and lively land. In our cellar, thanks to commitment and dedication, the typical wines of Valpolicella DOC and DOCG are born , all natural wines and low in sulphites.
US Natural Wine ships once a week, every Wednesday. All orders should be placed by Tuesday at 10am in order to be picked up from our distributors and out on Wednesday's delivery truck.
Shipping cost is 18 bucks a box (up to 12 bottles) so we highly encourage picking up more than 1 bottle for the best value!
At $18, we have some of the most competitive shipping rates compared to other low-intervention wine e-commerce, which can range from $20-$25 a box. Ultimately, we eat the cost of shipping more often than not because wine can be damn heavy. As a small business, we are simply unable to offer free shipping. We can't thank you enough for your understanding!
