History

The Cavalchina district where the estate is located is rich in history, being that it was the site of the resurgence of the first and second world war. The area has long been recognized as an abundant vine growing district, and this is especially due the consistency due to the clay soil's ability to stay moist even during the summer months. The level of quality of the wines being produced in the Cavalchina district were classified and registered as first and second quality category by the Hapsburg authorities in 1848. Being located in the city of Verona in Italy's North-Eastern region of Veneto, the Alps provide the area with protection from the harshness of the climate. These cooler elements make the perfect setting for the white varietals that Cavalchina is famous for.

Interesting Facts

By focusing on the three critical elements of vinification, terroir and the vines, Cavalchina has been able to consistently produce quality wines. The harvesting of grapes is performed manually in order to cull only the grapes of the highest grade. As a result, the quantity of wine that is produced every year varies, depending on the amount of quality grapes they can harvest. The leftover grapes are sold to a wholesalers, while only the best make it through to the production and vinification phase. The low-yield approach results in grapes that have a higher sugar content, which suits Cavalchina's collection of wines (ranging from Pino Blancos to Amarone Valpolicella DOCGs) perfectly.
