The Vineyards

The land of morainic earth finds its origin in the tumultuous erosion of surrounding glaciers which in times long past disintegrated and gave birth to the nearby the lake of Iseo. The soil, because of its geological, calcareous and dry structure, and relatively mild climate (rain fall of about 900 mm./year), is particularly suited to grow excellent grapes which where indigenous to the areas Etruscan and Roman populations.
