Our history has ancient origins: since 1870 we have vinified grapes, first purchased, then since 1970 produced by us directly in our winery settled on the beautiful hills of Castrezzone (Muscoline – BS -) and Polpenazze del Garda, on the western side of lake Garda: a small farm 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. La Guarda, a family business founded by Angelo and now run by his son Luigi and his wife Francesca, is born from the passion for this territory. with the help of Angelo’s decades experience, they combine the tradition with the application of modern technologies and innovations in the viticultural and oenological fields, with the sole aim of achieving quality levels.
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.
