Welcome! I’m Luigi! The history of my family has ancient origins: since 1870 we vinified grapes, first purchased, then from 1970 we produced directly in the company. This wonderful and unique hill was bought by my father Angelo: with the help of his experience, we were able to combine tradition with the application of modern technologies and innovations in the viticultural and enological field, with the sole purpose of reaching levels of ever higher quality. In 2002 I married Francesca and, since 2017, we carry on my father’s work together. Francesca and I met in 1999, during the harvest, and since then we have started dreaming about the future of this small company situated in Valtènesi area, between Muscoline and Polpenazze del Garda, on the west coast of Garda Lake: a small family business that covers an area of 18 hectares, 9 cultivated with vineyards and 2.5 cultivated with olive trees. The soil, characterized by stones and sand, gives rise, together with the particularly dry and constantly ventilated climate influenced by the proximity of the majestic Lake Garda, to a pedo-climatic situation that is considered by many experts not only ideal for the achievement of a ‘excellent quality of the products, but also the best in the area.
From the passion for this territory was born La Guarda The vines grown are: Barbera, Groppello, Marzemino, Merlot and Sangiovese the reds, Riesling Renano and Chardonnay the whites. In the small basement cellar it is possible to get into the heart of the production and follow step by step the meticulous processes that, starting from the bunch of grapes, lead to the wine ready for the bottle.
