Our winery is located on the morainal hills that frame south-eastern Lake Garda, near to the beautiful Verona.
Our history begins in 1930 when granddad Benvenuto Morando arrived and settled here with his large family, as he was attracted by a favourably positioned and sun-kissed land. In the 1960s, through great sacrifices and tenacity his son Giuseppe bought the land and started the cultivation of the vine.
In the following years we strengthen our tradition and passion for wines, that now moves Adriano in taking care of the vineyard and producing the best wine. Through a great deal of experience and professional growth, an important step was taken into the future as he built a new winery in 2010. The investment was designed to welcome and adopt innovative wine-making technologies, in order to get the best from the grapes in a natural way.
Our cellar offers the direct sale of the wine we produce. We have typical products of the Lake Garda, such as Bardolino, Chiaretto and Custoza, but many others: more structured red wines, sparkling wines and moreover!
“Il vino, specialmente in Italia, è la poesia della terra.”
The farm vineyards are located on the gentle slopes of a morainal hill, about 210m above sea level, which has a clayey-silty soil containing calcareous elements. Thanks to these features our wines stand out for their marvellous nose and minerality. Our vineyards are located in the DOC area for Custoza, Bardolino and Chiaretto.
VINE TRAINING SYSTEMS
About half of the vineyards (8 hectares) is over 15 years old, and the traditional training system is Trentino pergola, which entails a larger use of manual labour.
For the other more recent half of the vineyards the Guyot training system has been adopted. It has helped improving the quality of all grape varieties as it enables the mechanization of green pruning and defoliation especially. We choose hand-picked grape harvest, in order to secure the best selection of the yield.
