The morainic hills of the southern part of Lake Garda characterize the suggestive scenery of the production area of Bianco di Custoza, the renowned white wine named after a hamlet of the municipality of Sommacampagna. In Roman times Custoza was an ancient sentry and guard post whose strategic position on the hills favoured the control of the transit along the via Postumia, an extremely important connecting road with military and commercial functions running from Genua to Aquileia.

The area where Bianco di Custoza is produced stretches across the south-west part of the morainal amphitheatre of Lake Garda and is bordered by the river Mincio.

The soil here is composed of stratifications of different nature: red-brown soil on detrital sediments, rather compact and often sandy, and whitish, light-structured glacial morainic soil

on gravely-limestone or gravely-sandy sediments. These geologic features play a key role in providing lightness to the wines produced here.

The area also benefits from the thermal action produced by the waters of the nearby Lake Garda, thus guaranteeing a generally mild climate and average rainfall.

The white grapes grown for producing our Bianco di Custoza are among those specified in the Regulations on wine production and are: Garganega, Trebbiano toscano, Tocai friulano along with a small percentage of Chardonnay and Cortese. The resulting blend of grapes gives a wine that is rich in flavour, slightly aromatic, elegant, intense and with a delicate distinguished bouquet.
