IT ALL STARTED WITH A DREAM
Elisa is waiting for you: she will tell you how a dream became reality and how every year it gains momentum with new projects and more and more passion. With Elisa you can discover the LUGANA DOC wine, its history and its continuous growth, a small but precious denomination that is the pride of our Garda territory.
A UNIQUE TERRITORY
You will be pleasantly immersed in the splendour of the vineyards, you can stroll through the rows of vines and we will tell you about the winds that blow from the north and the warmth of the lake, together they create the perfect climate for our vineyard. We will also reveal the true secret of Lugana: the CLAY SOIL. Unique combinations that create a unique wine.
UNDER BRICK ARCHES YOU DISCOVER 0 DOSAGE
If you are lucky you might find Mattia busy in the cellar decanting his wine, then you are invited to go downstairs to the brick lined cellar that contains rows of bottles ready for the new vintage; here you will discover the classic “champenoise” method of wine making, a peculiarity of our company.
EVERYTHING HAS A STORY
Cascina Maddalena’s history is deeply linked to the Zordan family and as you walk around the farm you can slowly piece together the story of the farmhouse. Every object, every label, every corner has an origin and a meaning. And every piece of this puzzle fits together to create new life.
We love to give new life to old family objects, and each of them has an anecdote to tell, including the table prepared for you.
ELISA AND HER PASSION
There are those who make wine and those who tell you about it. Elisa has made her passion her job. She has Lugana wine in her heart and will tell you all about it. He loves being with her guests and talking with them, she inherited this from her mother Raffaella who you will have the pleasure of meeting during your visit to the winery.
