Food & wine
The Zeni brothers winery, located in Bardolino on the hills of the morainic amphitheater of Lake Garda, has had a special relationship with wine for five generations.
The vineyards of the Zeni family are partly located in the countryside surrounding Bardolino and partly extend into various adjacent areas belonging to about fifteen municipalities in the Veneto region and grow on fertile soils where the climate is optimal for growing grapes.
The grapes most cultivated by the Zeni family are Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara, while the most famous and renowned wines of the winery are Bardolino Doc Classico, Bardolino Docg Classico Superiore, Bardolino Chiaretto Classico and Valpolicella.
The Zeni winery is today a modern and innovative structure with an exclusive Wine Museum inside.
Veneto is one of the most suitable regions from the wine point of view of all of Italy.
A variegated and multifaceted territory, always in turmoil, with emerging productive realities alongside historical and prestigious names.
Among the latter we cannot fail to mention the Masi winery, a family business for seven generations that has belonged to the Boscaini family since the end of the 18th century, but which above all represents today one of the most important and authoritative Italian wine brands in the world.
Located in the hinterland of Lake Garda, Tenuta Canova reconciles the soft lines of the Veronese hilly area with the great stretch of water of the lake. The belvedere offers an enchanting panorama that ranges from the vineyards to the hills of Valpolicella, up to the mountain.
In addition to the extensive vineyards and organically-run olive groves, the estate houses the traditional fruit cellar, where the grapes dry before pressing, the cellar where the famous Campofiorin refines, the multimedia Masi Wine Discovery Museum and the welcoming Wine Bar.
Not only a functional cellar for the production, but also a welcoming winery in which to taste and buy its products: it is the Bergamini Agricultural Company, in Ca ‘Nova, in Colà di Lazise, in the Province of Verona, an area in which they produce unique nectars such as Custoza, Bardolino, Marzemino, Cabernet Sauvignon, but also grappa and extra virgin olive oil.
It is a winery with a solid tradition, which has been cultivating its own vineyards for over a century, surrounded by greenery in Colà di Lazise. Lake Garda, with its beneficial effects on the grapes, is just a stone’s throw away and is part of the evocative panorama that can be enjoyed by visiting the company.
The rich production relies first of all on the classics of the area, Bardolino and Custoza, but ranges through an articulated range of whites, reds, sparkling wines and passito wines. There is no shortage of grappas from Bardolino marc and oil obtained from proprietary olive trees close to the vineyards.
Veronesi oil mill
“Our oil mill traditions date back to the 19th century, to the great-great-great-grandfather Zeno Veronesi and to the great-great-great-grandfather Benedetto, subsequently taken over by the great-grandfather Vincenzo who in 1918 opened the” Frantoio per Olive Veronesi “on Lake Garda in Brenzone, then transferred in 1938 to Lazise and managed by his children, with the name “Fratelli Veronesi”.
In 1958 the grandfather Domenico became the sole owner, succeeded in 1988 by our father Emanuele. Later the management was attributed to us sons: Sofia, Giacomo and Augusto Veronesi; even today as yesterday, we maintain the same cold working system. “
Turri oil mill
Frantoio Turri was born from the passion for olive growing. Among the first oil mills in Verona, this oil mill carries on today as then a careful and scrupulous oil production, with the commitment to protect the authenticity of a product that was born from the meeting of nature and culture. The oil mill is at the center of a unique area, Lake Garda, whose peculiar microclimate has always been a valuable ally of Garda olive growing.
