An Italian original, crafted on the shores of Lake Garda
This Italian original, a winemaking tradition since 1996, is crafted on the shores of Lake Garda—the largest body of water in Italy—and home to one of the world’s most famous winemaking regions boasting over 10,000 growers and 400 wineries.
Our wines are cultivated on over 31,100 hectares, bordering as many as ten historic appellations in Brescia, Mantua and Verona. And thanks to the cool, drying breezes, and the moderate climate of the nearby lake, it’s the perfect atmosphere for making ripened, well-balanced wines.
Enjoy Garda D.O.C. Spumante featuring a sweetness range from Brut Nature to demi-sec. Or treat your taste buds to Garda Rosé either tank fermented, or fermented in the bottle. A refreshing complement to just about any gathering.
True Northern Italian character
Piave cheese hails from the province of Belluno, the northernmost tip of the Veneto region where you’ll find the breathtaking Dolomite mountains and valleys, as well as the legendary Piave river.
The distinct and delectable result of generations of cheese-making expertise, in an Alpine climate featuring cool summers and snowy winters, Piave cheese dates back to 1960 when it was first produced in small batches. A best kept secret among cheese lovers, which wasn’t kept so secret, as today Piave cheese produces over 350 thousand wheels a year.
From the pleasant and slightly salty Piave Mezzano to the intense full-bodied flavor of Piave Vecchio Selezione Oro with hints of fruit, Piave cheese gets its distinct northern Italian character from 3 different cattle breeds in Belluno province. At least 80% of the pasteurized milk comes from these breeds: Bruna Italiana (Italian Brown) Pezzata Rossa Italiana (Italian Red Pied) and Frisona Italiana (Italian Friesian or Holstein).
Piave cheese pairs well with Garda D.O.C. Sparkling rose wine. A hard, cooked curd cheese it’s an outstanding cheese from table to grating, and available in five ages:
