Description

In an area already celebrated by Catullo 2000 years ago, the vineyards of the morenic hills on the southern side of the Garda Lake exploit an exceptional micro-climate. The clay nature of the soil, misty mornings followed by beautiful sunny days, the large availability of water, and the limited thermal oscillations during the year create favourable conditions for the maturation of grapes which acquire an extraordinary richness of taste. At the centre of an area designated the first cru of the Lugana, stand the walls of an ancient country house: the cascina Roveglia. The Tenuta Roveglia was born in the thirties from the love of a Swiss textile business man, Frederic Zweifel, an emigre from the Glarus mountains to Verona. Initially wine was produced using traditional methods, and only for friends and connoisseurs. The Tenuta was enlarged in the sixties by Frederic's son, Giusto, and then completely transformed in the eighties with the creation of new vineyards and the acquisition of modern equipment.
