Cantina di Castelnuovo
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.
