Wine growers in the Valtènesi area
No-one in the family can remember which of their ancestors started producing wine.What is certain is that in the ancient, picturesque hamlet of Cantrina, perched on the remaining moraine deposits close to the Chiese river, many generations of the Averoldi family has been vintners and winemakers for several centuries.
Averoldi Agricultural Enterprise
For generations, the Averoldi Agricultural Enterprise has produced its wine in the Cantrina district of Bedizzole, a small hamlet situated in the Valtenesi wine region, a widespread zone in the inland area on the south-western shore of the Brescia side of Lake Garda that stretches from Desenzano del Garda up to Salò.
A luxuriant territory characterised by a microclimate consisting of mild winters and hot summers, yet which are not excessively humid, an ideal environment not only for the cultivation of grape vines but also for olive and citrus fruit trees.
