HuberVini was founded by the Huber family
in 1981. Over 85% of todays cultivated areas had to be reclaimed
and made usable because much of the land had been neglected since the
Second World War and had become completely overgrown. As with every
form of cultivation, agricultural land quickly returns to wild overgrowth
when it is not cared for. The farmer sees his challenge: "We cultivate
and tend what was always tended and hope that it will remain this way
in the future."
From the visible signs of its past form it can be determined that the
terraces of HuberVini had been cultivated for many years. The roads
and embankments in the vineyards prove that transport through Monteggio
was carried out centuries ago. The"Roman Path"(photo) was
constructed with great difficulty with a uniform gradient, and is so
well graded that even in wet weather it was usable by carts. It is suggested
that this pathway once had an importance beyond just the local area.
Who built it? Was it the Romans, who according to one theory kept a
garrison in Sessa? Or was it the noblemen from the Como region who built
manor houses here in the middle ages and sought the fresh country air
in summer? History remains silent on this.
