This vineyard is located at a high position at the beginning of the hills of Lake Garda’s morainic amphitheatre, on the “hood” close to the Tower of S.Martino Della Battaglia. Not only is this vineyard one of the highest but also one of the oldest in the estate. The Formentini family has been making wines since 1917 and is proud of working only with native grape varieties – you won’t find any Merlot or Chardonnay here! The estate’s wines are all made in the cellar, situated between Cascina Capuzza and Borgo San Donino agriturismo. The team in charge of the winemaking process is led by Luca Formentini, with the help of a cellarman, a winemaker and an agronomist.
In this whimsical place, deep and constant care is dedicated to sustainable farming and local development. Through a rich and complex combination of practices, like zero resources to herbicides, advanced water management systems to minimise water spillage, careful selection of local materials and labour to reduce Co2 emissions and pollution to its lowest while supporting the development of the local community, to name just a few.
Remarkable land, farmed with knowledge and love, producing a white wine of superior finesse and complexity. The wines from this vineyard are among the top 10 most highly rated Lugana – Lombardy wines.
