    About the winemakers
    Zenato
    Veneto
    Zenato

    The family winery, under the long-standing management of Sergio Zenato, has contributed significantly to the popularity of the wines from Lake Garda. More than 2,000 years ago, the Romans already knew how to appreciate the grapes from this region with its gently rising hills. Determination, passion and consistent striving for quality have made the company in Peschiera near San Benedetto one of the most important wine houses in Veneto. Aware of their historical roots, Sergio's descendants Alberto and Nadia today produce high-quality, pure, powerful and fruity wines of the absolute top class in the Azienda Agricola Santa Cristina, whose raw materials come from the best sites of the important Veronese growing regions Valpolicella and Lugana.

    The times when the winegrowing family bought up the best grapes from the surrounding winegrowers as Négocien and successfully processed them into fine wines in their own winery are long gone. Also, the concern of many experts that the success story of the Venetian winery could come to an end after the death of the patron and profound connoisseur of the region, Sergio Zenato, has turned out to be unfounded. While on Lake Garda Alberto accompanies the wine from the vine to the bottle and is also responsible for the export to Canada and other European countries, his sister is mainly responsible for communication and sales in the USA. And mother Carla makes sure that the very good image of the winery remains in the minds of all the target persons.

    The excellent microclimate and the soils south of Lake Garda are perfect for growing grapes, especially the autochthonous Trebbiano di Lugana grape variety. Since the mid-seventies other vineyards have belonged to the municipality of Sant'Ambrogio to the family estate. Here the classic local red varieties Corvina and Rondinella grow and thrive. The yields of the vineyards of the Zenato family, which are constantly being improved by oenologists from the University of Milan, fall far short of the permitted quantities in order to optimise grape quality. While the base material for the important and always reliable selections comes from our own vineyards, the base wines are usually made from grapes from tried and tested suppliers who are looked after all year round. Only the best fruits are carefully vinified in the cellar using modern technology. Conclusion: The past has shown that it is completely inappropriate to doubt the rosy future of the Zenato winery. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Sometimes it seems to us that the Zenatos have a kind of magic wand with which they can locate the mood frequency of both vineyard and customer. In any case, their reds and whites are characterized by a peaceful sweetness, an impressive freshness and a balanced finesse, without losing the expression of the vine or the terroir."Gambero Rosso
