The morainic soils deposited in the large amphitheatre east of Lake Garda by retreating glaciers during the Quaternary Period formed low, gentle hills overlooking the Po Valley.

In 1973, the Gorgo agricultural company was founded on these lands, so suited to the cultivation of vines (there are traces of vines as far back as the Bronze Age), near the little village of Custoza in the municipality of Sommacampagna (VR).

The structure of these soils and the climatic conditions markedly influence the organoleptic characteristics of the wines produced here.

Custoza’s hills are morainic in origin, typically whitish with a light structure made up of rocky debris, stones and pebbles, humus and silt, rich in calcium carbonate with a high pH. This combination of elements that originate from morainic debris is fundamental for the style of the wines produced here: minerality and great flavour.

The second factor that most characterises the terroir of the Custoza region is the climate. The currents from Lake Garda, by influencing the temperature, create a Mediterranean microclimate not typical for a region of northern Italy.

It is precisely this extremely temperate climate that helps our wines develop the aromas of white and yellow fruit and often hints of citrus. The fruity notes is some way emphasise the bouquet without ever becoming aggressive or dominant. Indeed, they make way for more delicate and floral aromas.
