Ca Dei Frati

View all from Ca Dei Frati
Ca Dei FratiCa' dei Frati was founded in 1939 when patriarch Felice Dal Cero settled in Sirmione (Brescia province) on the Lombardy region side of the Lugana appellation. It's called Ca' dei Frati or "friar house," because it was once owned by monks who grew grapes there.

Soil types play a fundamental role in crafting Ca' dei Frati's fresh, minerality-driven wines. Lake Garda was created during the Eocene era, some 35 million years ago, by a melting glacier. As the melting ice flowed south from what we now call the Italian Alps, it also brought with its glacial detritus.

Today, these rocky and pebbly "morainic" soils are ideal for the production of fine wine. Because the roots of the vines have to work harder to find the water table in the well-drained soils, their fruit production becomes more vigorous. As a result, the grape berries are richer in aroma and flavor, with more complexity and depth.

Today the winery manages 200 hectares planted to vine, accounting for 10 percent of the Lugana DOC. The winery also produces still and sparkling rosé wines, blended white wines (using Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc), and Amarone from Valpolicella, the most recent addition to the lineup.
