Lugana is a small region with about 1,200 hectares of vineyards straddling the provinces of Brescia and Verona, therefore on the border between Lombardy and Veneto, whose symbol is a splendid white wine.
It develops along the morainic plain south of Lake Garda. In ancient times it was largely a marshy place, a swampy scrub that was reclaimed, it seems, from the fourth century on.
There is historical evidence on the vine dating back to the Bronze Age: grape seeds of Vitis silvestris found in the pile dwellings of Peschiera del Garda. There is talk of traditions, or legends if you prefer, relating to the poet Catullus and the Ostrogothic king Theodatus. To return to the present day, the Lugana denomination was born in 1967, among the first in Italy.
The Consorzio di Tutela was born in 1990. This splendid white wine benefits from the temperate microclimate of Lake Garda on the one hand, and from the clayey soils of the area on the other.
Our wine list includes a selection of Lugana.
