Tasting Notes

On the southern shores of Lake Garda, Ca’ Lojera’s cellars have been built down under the lake, allowing the wines to maintain consistent temperatures all year round. Fragrant with fresh apples and floral pollen. Ripe on the palate, it is also a natural match with citrus-laced fish dishes.

Ca' Lojera makes its home on the southern bank of Lake Garda. The small winery is known for mineral driven wines, balanced with pristine fruit. White flowers, a touch of melon and lime zest are on display. Italian Chablis, anyone?
