Le Vigne di San Pietro is a unique “island of land” on the morainic hills of Lake Garda, in the Veneto region, located in the North-Eastern part of Italy. The 10-hectar winery was founded in 1980 by Sergio and Franca Nerozzi, my parents. My father decided to relocate his family from the busy city to the countryside, looking for a place of beauty and nature as well as a productive land.After two years of patient research, fate brought us here to Le Vigne di San Pietro, at this unique strategically located place between Lake Garda and the beautiful city of Verona.
Our soil is exceptionally suited for the production of wine grapes. The ancient remains and the consistently high quality of production that we have been achieving over the years, speak for Le Vigne di San Pietro’s uniqueness in many ways. My parents were very wise people. The morainic soil is composed of a mix of clay, limestone, and glacial origins, rich in minerals. The microclimate is influenced by the near Lake Garda which enhances the grapevines’ qualities and serves to bring the best from this special soil. The vineyards are surrounded by a small forest of diverse tree species, creating rich biodiversity, instrumental for the balanced growth of the grapevines. The land is not tilled and the grass in the vineyards is mechanically maintained, without the use of any commercial herbicides. Green manure is used to enrich the soil and increase biodiversity. Grapes are picked by hand, collected in cases and addressed after cooling within a few hours from the harvest. Our white grape varieties are Garganega, Trebbiano, Trebbianello, Manzoni Bianco, Cortese. Our red berried grapes are Corvina, Rondinella, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
We are honoured to work this special land and produce the best wines our knowledge and tradition can provide.
From the Passion to produce, to the Pleasure for the wine tasting.
The history of our company begins with grandpa Luigi (born in 1913), who passed on to us his passion for the vineyard. Subsequently, dad Lino has transformed this passion into a job. It is in their honor that we named two of our best bottles of wine: “Bianco 1913” and “Rosso PROTETTO”.
After they both passed away, their cultural heritage has been passed on to the son Giovanni and the nephew Andrea. Still today, Father and son take care and manage the winery with the same passion and dedication as their ancestors. We have been producers of wine and grapes for three generations now. Since 2019, we have begun to vinify our product with maximum attention to the prime material, the grape. At the foundation of our production is the respect and the consideration of the land where our vineyard grows. The logo “CASA TIONE” has been acknowledged since the beginning of our journey, and that is why we have decided not to modify it. In addition, maintaining the logo was a sign of respect for the people who contributed in the realization of this project, and for those who lived in this land. Our winery is placed in the valley of the river Tione, between the Morainic hills of Santa Lucia Ai Monti and Custoza; scene of historical battles for the independence of our Nation.
“We inherit this land from our fathers, and we pass it on to our children”.
