Our Story

THE TERRITORY:

Our winery, as well as most of the Bertagna land, is located in Bande, a hamlet of Cavriana, in the province of Mantua, right in the heart of the moraine hills, a hilly arch that embraces the Garda lake in its southern part. The beautiful lake, also called Benaco is about 10 kilometers from the Bertagna winery. And precisely this hilly landscape was sung by Virgil, the greatest Latin poet, to whom we owe famous works such as the Aeneid, the Bucolic and the Georgic.

The Bertagna family has been dedicated to this Virgilian countryside and wine for at least four generations and the ancestors of Gianfranco, the current owner, have always had some land and a farm with dairy cattle.
he company’s specialization towards viticulture began in 1991 and in 1995 with the cellar now functioning the first label came out: 3.000 bottles that Gianfranco, his wife Nadia and his whole family still carry in the hearts.

THE WINERY:

The Bertagna winery is organized to deal with the entire wine production: from vinification to maturation in the bottle. In the wine making and storage room there are machine for the soft pressing of the grapes, stainless steel tanks for the fermentation all equipped with temperature controlled. The aging cellar is used for the maturation of the classic method sparkling wine and for the oak barrels (barrique and tonneaux) for the aging of the superior wines.

The various stages of the wine making, which are very delicate operations, require care and extreme cleaning. In the Bertagna winery all this is done with scruple and dedication.

And so, oenological experience, passion and modern technologies put together, give life to the precious Bertagna wines, which are a surprise to discover for all those who want to come and taste them.
