On the hills of San Martino Buon Albergo, is Tenuta Musella, one of the most beautiful and self-contained estates of the Veneto region. The winery is one of the oldest sources on the family of the Counts Muselli, presumably the first proproetors of the Tenuta, dated from the sixteenth century. Though, it is not until the second half of the nineteenth century that one hears about the winemaking tradition of the area, and they produces fantastic Amarone and Valpolicella wines.
Maddalena was born in Verona in 1973. She studied Contemporaney History at the University in Bologna, but when her father Emilio asked her to join him for the Musella project, she followed him with a great and unexpected enthusiam. She travelled everywhere in the world to take the wine culture and she grown her winemaking knowledge working in the Musella winery and spending a lot of time with other winemakers in different cellars. The business experience and her passion for the nature took her to the Biodynamic. She spent many years following and studying the different currents about Biodynamic viticulture till she found in Mr Alex Podolinsky her mentor. She lives in the middle of the vineyards in Musella with her two kids, Edoardo and Tancredi, dogs, cats and...donkeys.
