DID YOU KNOW...?

Vines have grown in this district since the Bronze Age (1200 BC), with proof found in the Lower Garda stilt houses. Moreover, in ancient times the area south of Lake Garda was covered by the “Selva Lucana” (giving rise to the name “Lugana”), dense, swampy woods reclaimed in the 1400s by order of “La Serenissima”, the Republic of Venice.
