VERONA

Verona, the Scaligera city, is one of the main cities in the Veneto region of Northern Italy. Among Italy’s great art cities, its wealth of art and archaeology has earned it a place on the list of UNESCO world heritage sites.

Verona is famous as the city of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, but also for its Arena: a huge first century Roman amphitheatre where concerts and opera are still performed.

Much of the city’s architectural beauty is due to the restoration work of Cangrande della Scala, who made it a refined landmark along the banks of the River Adige. Every year Verona hosts Vinitaly, an annual wine fair that brings together the most important Italian and foreign wine makers.

Lake Garda

Lake Garda is one of the biggest Italian lakes, with an area of approximately 370 square km extending into three Northern Italian regions: Veneto, Trentino Alto Adige and Lombardy.

In Roman times Lake Garda was known as Benaco and was even then an important destination for those who sought a healthy life in a beautiful environment featuring typically Mediterranean vegetation: olive trees, vines and agave flourish due to the lake’s microclimate.

Nowadays Lake Garda is home to a multitude of modern spas that offer relaxing holidays, inhaler treatments and bathing in the many warm springs from over 200m deep aquifers.

CASTELNUOVO DEL GARDA

Castelnuovo del Garda was named Quadrivum by the Romans, marking its special geographical position, but, following Barbarossa’s invasion in the 12th century, the population was forced to build a new fortified settlement, Castrum Novum.

A small part of the Municipality of Castelnuovo overlooks one of the most beautiful shores of Lake Garda, but its territory extends mainly into the moraine hills where the silver leaves of the olive trees and geometrical rows of vines, world-famous for excellent wine, provide tourists and visitors with unforgettable views of rare beauty. The grape festival in September is just one of the many events that attract both Italian and foreign friends who have a passion for wine.

The "Della Scala" Dynasty

The Signoria della Scala governed the city of Verona from mid 13th century to the end of the 14th, and was one of the most influential families in Northern Italy, in a troubled historic period which also featured the legend of Romeo and Juliet: star-crossed lovers who inspired Shakespeare’s tragedy.

The Della Scala family was rich and powerful and under it, at its height, Verona became an important political and economic power. This can be seen today in the imposing city walls along the hilltops to the north and several castles throughout the province.

OUR VISION since 1958

Since April 1958 the “Cantina Sociale Veronese del Garda” has continued its commitment to gradual, constant growth: from just 11 initial members, there are now over 200 who contribute their grapes and bring to the Cantina Castelnuovo del Garda a harvest from approximately 1,000 hectares of vineyards.

The estate includes the hilly area south-east of Lake Garda and most of the vineyards lie in the controlled denomination of origin areas for Bardolino, Custoza, Lugana and Bardolino Superiore DOCG.

The entire territory under the municipalities of Castelnuovo del Garda, Sona, San Giorgio in Salici, Palazzolo, Peschiera, Sommacampagna, Colà, Lazise and Bardolino provides approximately 13,000,000 kilos of grapes.

The soil is of moraine origin, loose and stony; grapes are trellis or espalier trained, with a density of 3,300 up to 4,000/5,000 plants per hectare.

Cantina di Castelnuovo del Garda deals with promoting and distributing a wide range of products in Italy and abroad, enhancing their image through constant quality improvements. To achieve this members are renewing their technology, starting with purely natural operations on vines and entering the winery with state of the art pressing and vinification equipment.

We manage our vineyards observing sustainability principles: in this respect we have been working over the years to select and control our vineyards to develop their potential to the utmost.

We have adopted Integrated Pest Control protocols, i.e. greatly restricted, controlled use of pesticides.

Spontaneously growing grass is used in all our vineyards to create a habitat rich in biodiversity regarding both plants and animals; methods such as alternating grass cutting between rows of vines create an environment in which insects useful for keeping vine parasites in check can thrive.

Because maintaining biodiversity is fundamental for our territory, we go beyond the vineyard boundaries to protect the surrounding areas (woods, wetlands, nesting areas) where many species can flourish.

To be sustainable and produce top quality grapes it is essential to apply all production methods properly: the technical area of the winery gives advice on precision viticulture, that is to say intervention limited to when and where necessary.

Since 2012 our winery has been using the main Italian protocols regarding sustainable viticulture, and we participate in the Italian Wine Union’s Tergeo project.
