The Ca’ dei Frati winery has been renowned since 1782. In 1939, Felice Dal Cero formerly a wine grower in Montecchia di Crosara near Verona, moved to that very house in Lugana di Sirmione, immediately realising the area’s potential for vine cultivation. After thirty years working in the vineyard and the cellar, his son Pietro took part in the creation of the Lugana DOC in 1969, bottling his first wine with the label Lugana Casa dei Frati, later named Ca’ dei Frati.
The grapes of every vineyard are vinified separately in order to gain a clearer vision of the expressions of the "terroir". The processes take place with the utmost respect for the raw material through an innovative technique refined over the years that enables the winery to produce full-bodied wines with great longevity.
