Do not miss a great tasting at site
The dawn is when Agostino and his team set out for picking the correctly ripe grapes for the winemaking. Starting the picking early for cooler harvest gives them more time to get their grapes to the press, which helps to keep the aromatic qualities, states Agostino. Also, the weather is much cooler.
The vineyard produces wines of two appellations, namely, Doc Soave and Doc Valpolicella. The grape varieties grown in the vineyard are Garganega, Trebbiano di Soave, Corvina Rondinella Corvinone. These grapes eventually are bottled into red, white and dessert wines. The winery has recieved prestigious awards like Gambero Rosso 2020, Tre Bicchieri and Soave Superiore DOCG Il Casale 2017.
