The Corte Sermana- Winery nestled in the Hills of Lake Garda
The Corte Sermana winery is nestled in the hills of Lake Garda along an outlet of the lake called the Sermana in Lugana, Italy. This Sermana outlet is from which the winery takes its name. Corte Sermana is steeped in tradition, background with the owner’s deep knowledge and passion for the territory in which it is located. This deep bond with the territory is evident in everything that is done at the winery, including the guinea fowl in the logo, which is a symbol of tradition in the area.
Perfect conditions for Cultivatiton of Turbiana Grapes
The location of Corte Sermana in the southern region of Lake Garda means that it has a unique microclimate that creates the perfect conditions for the creation and the cultivation of the Turbiana grape. The soil of the territory has glacial origins with micro organic deposits and mineral salts. It also has stratifications of limestone, clay and silt.
This soil means that the winery is able to produce wine of the highest quality that takes on the aromatic notes, colours and flavours typical of the Lugana terroir.
The Philosophy of the Winery
The philopshy of Corte Sermana is breathed into every phase of the wine making process. This philosophy includes respect to the vineyard, selection of only the best grapes and the non-use of chemical herbicides. While always paying respect to nature, modern techniques are also used for soil and crown management but winter pruning and the selection of buds is still done completely by hand. The wine blends produced at Corte Sermana are made from a micro selection of grapes that enhance the aromas and flavours of the terroir.
