“Perla del Garda” is a multi-level winery inspired by and created second the gravity flow wine making philosophy.
On the top level, where the bunches of grapes are delivered, a careful selection takes place, following which the red wine grapes are destemmed and the white wine grapes are gently vacuum pressed. The red wine grapes and the white wine must then flow by gravity into steel tanks located on the middle level where temperature controlled fermentation begins. Once the desired result has been obtained, the wine flows down to the bottom level, filling the tanks and casks in the cellar, where fermentation proceeds and refining is carried out in steel or in wooden casks.
Our “Bollicine” sparkling wines are obtained using the traditional method of re-fermentation in the bottle, which takes place exclusively in Magnums.
We’ve always paid attention to environmental and social sustainability issues. The strong relation with land and the awareness that the best products come from quality raw materials, are the base of our engagement in landscape and vineyards protection.
The infrastructure and processes implemented in the winery comply with sustainability principles, in coherence with international standards and models.
The winery is a research and innovation place where we usually meet schools, wine-lovers associations – professionals or not, social organization and disadvantage people involved into social reinsertion programs.
