The Borgo dei Posseri farm lies on a sunny plateau at 450-650 m above sea level on the left side of the Adige Valley, above the historical small town of Ala, between Trento and Verona, in a place called Pozzo Basso. You reach it by going along the first stretch of Ronchi Valley, a geologically interesting area being the connection between the Lessini Mountains in the south, and the Small Dolomites. At its shoulders, the Carega group lies above 2200 m on calcareous rocks in a typically prealpine environment, characterized by belts of chestnut, beech and fir. The vineyards, spaced out by thistle woods and pastureland, are mainly flat or slightly sloping down to the west, while the exposure is mainly to west and north-west. Winds coming from south (Ora) and north regularly pass though the area and make it an ideal habitat for grapevine cultivation in a non-intensive environment.
