For over seventyfive years we have produced wines with the best grapes of Lake Garda.
Love for Garda and Lugana Wines urge us, from generation to generation, to a continuous renewal.
With over seventy hectares of vineyards and olive groves, the Avanzi family produces, in its winery, the most prestigious Garda and Lugana wines and sparkling wines.
With the same care, in our oil-mill, we produce a very low acidity extra virgin olive oil, the famous Garda D.o.p. extra virgin olive oil.
We take care of our land and its fruits through a production renewal, combining history with technologies.
In March 2007 the family Avanzi have inaugurated the new winery. Connected to the first cellar , the new winery covers a total area of 3,000 square meters. The facility is equipped with the most modern and technological equipment for an high quality winemaking. It has the shape of a classic farmhouse. The new stainless steel tanks are positioned in the middle of the build. The suggestive barrel corridor leads to the underground. In the eight hundred meters of underground corridors, all the wines of Avanzi aging.The corridors connect the new structure to the second basement, where all the wines are bottled and stored, ready for sale. The north side has a large room for drying the grapes, entirely managed by a central computer which monitors humidity and temperature.
The oil called "estivo" (extravergine superior) is in absolute the oil from the nobler characteristics. It was mentioned in his agronomy essays by the Latin writer Lucio Moderate Giunio Columella in 54 A.D.
The Avanzis have a production of extravergine superior oil (olio estivo), which is highly selected. The olives, nearly ripe between the end of October and the beginning of November, are picked and pressed the same day producing an excellent oil, sweet, aromatic and with the lowest acidity.
An authentic delight for the refined gourmets. With the same attention the Avanzis produce also the classic Extravergine of Garda (produced with olives coming uniquely from biological cultivations). The Avanzis take advantage of a very modern press, where two mills are used; the first one (stone) for the less mature olives, the second (a metal tooth grinder) for the riper olives.
