Our four wineries are in the heart of the Veneto Region, between Verona,
Vicenza and Venice. This area has been gifted with volcanic and glacial soil which is particularly suitable for grape growing, also owing to its temperate climate and good exposure to the sun. The Berici Hills particularly, which originated about 60 million years ago after an upthrust of the surface, have very clayey soil that gives their wines a body; in the Gambellara area the dark, fine-grained volcanic rock helps to exalt its wines with a fine aroma and bouquet; while the soil in the Lake Garda area is morainic, loose and with an abundance of resistant sediment which bestows an intense minerality on its wines.
Soil mainly composed of basalt vulcanites, dark brown in colour and moderately deep. Typical of the Gambellara area.
Soil from thin to moderately deep, medium texture, skeleton frequently calcareous, available water capacity low, good drainage. Typical of the Lake Garda area.
Soil with more than 20% limestone content, whitish in colour, from thin to moderately deep. The calcium carbonate comes from the decomposition of organisms with a shell or a calcareous skeleton. This type of soil is found particularly in North-Eastern Italy.
Soil mainly composed of aluminium silicates, defined as compact or heavy. It retains humidity so that drainage is difficult. It is sometimes white, other times yellow and in some cases reddish.
