The artisan who made it
Le Tende is a family run winery located on the Lake Garda, between Colà di Lazise and Cavaion Veronese, on a land that is blessed with a mild climate that has always been particularly suited for the production of great wines. The Le Tende is also a small olive orchard from which they produce an olive oil which is manly used by the family and a small percentage given to selected importers like us. Le Tende winery follows organic and natural farming and it has been the case from the beginning, they firmly believe in protecting and respecting the environment.
Le Tende vineyards are located in the heart of the Bardolino Classico and Custoza areas, with the most northern vineyards in the Custoza appellation where the particular soil with sandy and strongly calcareous texture gives the wine a particular aromaticity and minerality.
Le Tende winery grows the local native grapes with the addition of the international cabernet sauvignon that has found a home on the lake shore.
