Verona - Veneto - Italy

Tasty, easy going wines from a lovely bio-family farm that not only produce traditional grapes but also, interestedly enough, hectars of Kiwi. Since the 1970’s the Ronca family has been tending their vines  on the gentile hills in of the Sommacampagna area in the Venento.  It started with Ulterico then to his son Walter, and finally to Massimo who lives at the Sommacampagna winery estate with his family and his parents. Situated the area south Lake Garda, the pristine vineyards and winery sit on a breezy knoll where the 3 generations of The Ronca family live and work and play.

The family's vineyards are located in the historic Bardolino and Custoza DOC area, south of Garda Lake, within the Sommacampagna district. It is here where they grow mostly autochthonous grape varieials-  Garganega, Trebbianello, Trebbiano Toscano, Corvina, and Rondinella.  The Morenic hills of the area are known for producing wines that are rich with minerality and brightness.

Tèra -  Custoza dop

Delicate pale straw yellow with greenish reflections. Soft sensations of wildflowers, fruity citrus and white melon. Closes on mineral notes. The taste is agile, declined on freshness and flavor. Each wine is aged individually on its lees for about 4 months until assembly.

Erre -  Bardolino dop

The Cantina Ronca Bardolino sees traditional maceration of skin with racking off after few days from the beginning of fermentation and, in order to accentuate the fermented fruity aromas, the temperature is kept at a maximum of 22-25° C. The alcoholic fermentation is followed by a partial malo-lactic fermentation, in order to obtain more softness and drinkability.  Erre is far more pleasent than most Bardolino's- while many have a hard bitterness at the end, this one doe not.  The taste is fresh with bits of smoke and easy berry.
