In this terroir to the south of Lake Garda, an historical setting with its unique microclimate, we enjoy the ideal conditions in which to cultivate the Turbiana grape. Its glacial soil, rich in minerals and microorganisms, features layers of chalky clay and silt.
Wine produced here embodies the utmost expression of quality and takes on the aromas, flavors and colors typical of the Lugana DOC terroir.
Our production philosophy here at Corte Sermana is reflected in every step of the wine-making process, from our respect for our vines to selecting only the best the grapes and refusing to use chemical herbicides.
This all starts with the meticulous care we dedicate to our Turbiana vines, an interweaving of advanced techniques of soil and vine management with manual pruning in winter and the careful selection of buds in spring.
