Description

Cavalchina is the name of the area where the winery has been built and is probably named after the old residence of the Count Cavalchini.The estate is in the south east of the Garda amphitheatre, which has been a traditional wine producing area actually in 1848, during the period of Hapsburg domination of the region, it was mapped out as having vineyards of both first and second class categories. Although this classification included factors other than the quality of each wine, such as the various terroirs in the region, particularly the excellent glacial soils and the resistance to hot and cold climates.Cavalchina was a battleground during the first and second wars of Independence in the late 19 th century.The testimony of the Battle of Custoza in 1866 is a stone obelisk near the entrance to the Cavalchina estate, and indicating that Prince Amedeo of Savoia was wounded there.The estate was established at the beginning of the last century when the family bought the first vineyards.

Later, in 1948, the cellars were built, initially as a grappa distillery and was used as such until 1967.The most important aspect of Azienda Agricola Cavalchina is that in 1962 it was the first producer to put Custoza as the name of the wine from the region made with Fernanda, Trebbiano and Garganega and it has been successful in selling its wines to the fashionable markets of Rome and Milan .

Respect is the watchword of our philosophy.We need to minimise man's impact. We grow the grapes with a view to concentration of flavour and to e m p h a s i s e t h e characteristics of each grape, but without changing them.The task in the cellar is to follow rather than impose evolution, it is this that inspires our wines.We make wines to accompany food in as simple a way as possible.
