ORIGIN

For us, Lake Caldaro is both a reference point and an element of identification: first of all, there is a large part of our vineyards surrounding the lake, which, like our company, bears its name from the village of Caldaro. On the other hand, the wine produced from Schiava grapes from the vineyards surrounding the lake is also called "Lago di Caldaro".

VINTAGE

Overall, the climatic conditions of the 2018 vintage were very good. Winter and spring rainfall provided sufficient moisture and, consequently, ideal pollination conditions. The abundance of sunshine and above-average temperatures during the summer and autumn resulted in a drought, which was offset by severe thunderstorms in August. Thanks to the optimal climatic conditions at the end of summer it was possible to harvest healthy and ripe grapes.
