The Veneto wine region is the most varied in terms of wine styles in all of Italy. It extends over large alpine and pre-alpine mountainous areas and over a wide central plain to the shores of Lake Garda to the west. A vast region and, consequently, with a great diversity of climates and soils, Veneto produces lake, mountain, hill and plain wines. With a production of around ten million hectoliters per year, Veneto occupies the first position in wine production in the entire country: 20% of quality Italian wines are produced in Veneto.
THE FAMILY AS GUARDIAN OF TRADITION
The farm is located in the heart of the Lugana production area. Preserving the viticultural tradition of the area and representing innovation in the field of wine production have been the objectives of Cà Maiol from the beginning: objectives that were renewed in 1996 when the estate passed into the hands of the sons of the founder, Walter Contato. The new generation inherited his passion for the region, his love for Lugana wine and his desire to further develop and improve the company’s excellent products. As a result, the 110 hectares of the estate are today the fertile custodians of pioneering vinification and a wine with a strong local identity. Thanks to its unique texture and contemporary style, it has managed to conquer palates around the world.

Santa Margherita is an Italian winery founded in 1935 by Gaetano Marzotto, who felt great love for his wife, Margherita Lampertico Marzotto, for which the winery was named in her honor. This family winery is famous for its unmistakable and elegant pinot grigio: it was the first winery in the world to vinify this variety in white in 1961. This is the best-selling Pinot Grigio in the world and has also been a leader in the USA since the 1970s.

THE BREATH OF A UNIQUE LAND BETWEEN WATER AND SKY
There are places that have a dual soul.
One of them is the land where Torresella is located. Raising the quality level of viticulture in the area is an integral part of Torresella’s mission, a way of showing appreciation to this region for what it has to offer.
Torresella’s decision to be innovative was clear from the beginning, when they brought a high-quality viticulture project to this region. This included the analysis, preparation and drainage of the soil, the selection of rootstocks and clones, and much more. They carried out countless activities and specific operations, all with the aim of creating high quality wines.
