Our main denominations

Bardolino DOC

From the morainic hills on the eastern slopes of Lake Garda. The soil is well exposed to the sun and the area has hot summers and mild winters.

Colli Berici DOC

From the Colli Berici, a hilly area very well exposed to the sun with a mild microclimate. Environmental conditions, therefore, are very favourable; the land here was already covered with vineyards in the distant past.

Prosecco DOC

These wines are produced in the Veneto Region all over the area between Treviso, Vicenza, Venice, Padua and Belluno. The variety of vine used for Prosecco is Glera, a grape that has been known since Roman times.

Lessini DOC

The wine produced from the indigenous vines cultivated in this area, the Monti Lessini on the borders of the Provinces of Vicenza and Verona, has interesting characteristics seen in products such as Durello Spumante, one of the most notable in our range.

Vicenza DOC

The area in which this wine is made is the Province of Vicenza. The DOC denomination was granted to the area in 2000 in order to protect the traditional wines at the basis of local production.

Gambellara DOC

This wine comes from a historic area with one of the most ancient wine traditions on the borders of the Provinces of Vicenza and Verona. The land, of volcanic origin with basaltic soil, mainly in the form of earthy and crumbly tufa, is particularly suitable for vine cultivation: its natural fertility and high mineral content give the wine an extraordinary tone.

Soave DOC

The area of production of Soave is the eastern part of the arc of hills in the Province of Verona. This is a generous land of hills, volcanic soil, gentle slopes and green stretches of vineyards. The climate in this area, which has always had a strong vocation for vine growing, is mild and temperate.

Delle Venezie DOC

This wine comes from white grapevines that are suitable for cultivation in the Regions of Friuli Venezia Giulia and Veneto and the Province of Trento. In Veneto, the area of Delle Venezie DOC lies in the Provinces of Belluno, Padua, Rovigo, Treviso, Venice, Verona and Vicenza, a terroir particularly appreciated for its historical authenticity and the intelligent commitment of growers that have succeeded in preserving tradition without underestimating the importance of evolution.

Valpolicella DOC

The area of production of this wine is encased by the Lessini Hills to the north and east and Lake Garda to the west; the land is very varied structurally even if mainly hilly.

Lugana DOC

From an area south of Lake Garda with a Mediterranean climate of hot summers and mild winters, a plain extending inland from the lake including Desenzano, Peschiera and Sirmione.

Custoza DOC

The area of this wine covers the hills between Verona and Lake Garda. The indigenous varieties of Garganega, Trebianello and Bianca Fernanda are used for wines of this denomination.

Garda DOC

This denomination takes its name from the area that boasts the presence of Lake Garda. It is mainly hilly, its climate is one of hot summers and mild winters and rainfall is distributed fairly evenly over the year.

Recioto di Gambellara DOCG

The area of this denomination is the same as for Gambellara DOC. The vine is Garganega, whose bunches are carefully selected and afterwards dried in well ventilated rooms.

Safeguarding and fostering the typicality of the wines from our area

A territory, a wine, an identity: the uniqueness of the product of a vineyard comes into being as a result of a set of interactions between the activity of man and nature. The characteristics of a wine have a very complex origin, but the terroir plays a fundamental part in determining the quality of the raw material – the grape.
