Peri Bigono, surrounded by the moraine hills of Castenedolo, is located in the Lombardia region of Italy, a short drive away from Lake Garda. It is wonderfully positioned in between the most appreciated tourist spots of Venice and Milan. Every member of the Peri family is whole-heartedly involved in the business and produces many award-winning wines in the Montenetto Di Brescia DOC regions.
The tale begins when in 1946, the Peri family shifted to Castenedolo from Visano, the southern part of Brescia. They bought a historical Palace, initially owned by Togni Family, and restored it into a family business of wine production. The ancient cellar of the winery has the most appealing entrance with a large staircase, covered with marble steps. You can see an old postcard in the cellar from the 1920s that reveals the long history of winemaking in the cellar. Moreover, they have large barrels and barriques for wine aging and ancient jars to store lemon juices.
Peri Bigogno grows high-quality grapes, such as Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Marzemino and produces red and white wines. The company also delivers delicious sparkling wines, made with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Blanc, under Talento DOC status.
The vineyards, dotted around the Lake Garda, enjoy the gentle winds that sway around the area. They relish microclimate throughout the year, along with the fertile soil that is perfect for the production of a wide array of vines. Along with vine cultivation, the estate is also indulged in the farming of lemon plants and produces tasty lemon juices.
