Le Morette is famous for Lugana DOC
Le Morette di Valerio Zenato is a family-run winery founded in 1960 and located in Peschiera del Garda, close to the city of Verona that produces mainly Lugana and Bardolino Chiaretto. The headquarters are in a thin belt between Frassino Lake and Lake Garda, an important site and natural reserve. The Morette symbol is based on a species of wild duck found in the Frassino Lake. Each step of winemaking is carefully checked by the owners to ensure high-quality wines with a strong character.
Vineyards in three top-class areas
They own around 30 hectares of vineyards divided into three parts. The first two parts are in San Benedetto di Lugana while the other one is in Sirmione Palace near Lake Garda. There is a strong bond with nature, thanks to the use of organic and sustainable practices. The land is mostly dedicated to Lugana wines, with some particular red full-bodied wines, produced with Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Corvina grapes. The white wines also have a strong structure and minerality
New winery built in 2013
In 2013 they concluded the building of the new winery, with the newest technologies and an improved productivity standard, together with a wonderful tasting area dedicated to clients. Sustainable construction, healthy building materials, and renewable energies were the key-words for the new site, which represent their identity in viticulture and winemaking. The company has always enjoyed the idea of communicating the passion for winemaking, welcoming people to experience the original soul of the territory.
