The Casaretti Winery was founded in the early 1900s. It is located in the heart of the Bardolino Classico on the morainic hills of Lake Garda, a few kilometers from Verona. Since 2010 the founder’s grandchildren Agostino, Gianmaria and Stefano take over the company continuing the idea of his father for which the conditions for obtaining excellent wines are already laid in the vineyard. Practicing with the biological care of yields and a prudent agricolture to reduce the environmental impact, they seek the highest quality of environmental grapes. The consistent application of this philosophy also in the cellar is a guarantee of marked typicality and exaltation of the terroir. Thanks to the mild climate of the lake, native wines such as Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella, Molinara and Garganella can be grown. From the 2018 harvest, all the wines produced are certified organic.
