HISTORY

HuberVini was founded by the Huber family in 1981. Over 85% of today’s 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.
