Bardolino DOC wine

Fresh and refreshing ruby ​​red wine, it is grown in the Western area of ​​the province of Verona, in the mild and sunny climate of the shores of Lake Garda. The rosé variety (minimum maceration of the skins) is called Chiaretto and is increasingly appreciated, even in its sparkling version with the charmant method.

The name of the wine derives from Bardolino, a citadel on the shores of the lake in the center of the production area. This town has ancient origins (the first settlement was on stilts), was much appreciated by the Romans, subsequently disputed by feudal lords and nobles, with some period of autonomous government. The construction of the castle and the city walls is due to the Scaligeri (an important Veronese family).

Today it is a country with a strong tourist vocation, perfect for a walk along the lakefront, an ice cream, a break during a bike tour.
