Merry Christmas from Selva Capuzza

We wish to send you our most sincere wishes for the upcoming festivities. May them be filled of serenity, time to devote to your dear ones and to yourself.
2017 was an exciting year, full of important steps as our new vineyard and the reaching of our 100th harvest, the fruit of which will accompany us in the coming years.

A century, lived in and around wine, in full respect of the soil, and its inhabitants.
Happy Holidays from all of us in Selva Capuzza!

Our 2017 harvest was one of the best among the latest ones, we've been lucky enough to have our crops saved from the crazy weather conditions that sadly have affected many wine-growing areas in Europe.
There was a little less grape production, however the wines of our 100th harvest will express excellent characters. Such a good vintage allowed us to produce an experiment as a celebration of this unique achievement.
Be a little patient to discover more about it.

The wine of silence

Schermata 2015-08-24 alle 11.21.19.png
"A place to rest the spirit and enrich the senses. To regain the charm of a lost time, which here is still flowing with forgotten rhythms, but also to get lost in the tranquility of an area that has been able to maintain its ancient integrity. We are in San Martino della Battaglia, one of the most beautiful areas in the hinterland of Lake Garda..."

Claudio Andrizzi wrote this article on "Garda Expo", the webzine about food and wine on Lake Garda, jointly published with the collaboration of Strada dei Vini e dei Sapori del Garda, the Lake Garda food & wine route.
