Azienda Agricola Ca' Lojera

    ... and when filling a glass of wine during the winter time  there should be a song for every glass to recall the autumn days, the vineyards and the winepress and the grapes ...

    (K. Gibran)
Cá Lojera e Lugana Cá Lojera and Lugana the Grand of the big lake It is told, that once upon a time when the Garda Lake and the smaller Frassine Lake where connected by chanels, black merchants arrived on their boats from the north and used the houses along the water for hiding their smuggled merchandise, and some people swear that wolves did protect those hideaways.
The Cá Loiera estate of the Tiraboschi family, is therefore called wolves house. Only grapes from the 14 ha vineyards belonging to this estate are used in the production. White Lugana grapes grow on flat, argillaceous ground and on the hills red Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes.
Franco Tiraboschi is the man of action and responsible for vine making, his wife Ambra is the host for guests who want to visit the cellars, which partly are located underneath lake level.
Their daughter Alessandra is responsible for the San Benedetto selling point.
Approximately 120.000 bottles of wine are produced every year, and sold on the national market through wine-bars, restaurants and special wine stores  and a good quantity is exported.
Particularly precious are the Monte della Guardia wines red from grapes from the hills, like Garda DOC Merlot, Garda DOC Cabernet Sauvignon Garda DOC Chardonnay from old vines but especially the Lugana year-wines (actually the 2003), the Lugana Vigna Silva Riserva refined in barrique and the Lugana Superiore fermented in wooden 25 hl barrels with batonnage.
During week ends it is possible to eat local specialities inside the estate. Within short the renovation of the old guest house, a 14th century construction which was used as summer residence by the Veronese bishops, shall be finished.
There will be 8 guest rooms and a big hall for conventions and wine tasting.

Lugana DOC del Lupo

I think it's truly outstanding. Probably one of the best Lugana wines I have ever had the chance to try. I've drunk it several times already, and I have always found it has a very distinctive character. Perhaps it's a little difficult to understand at the moment, because it's still closed and nervous. But, in my opinion, there is a fascinating future in store for it. It is aged in steel: just steel, no wood at all. Even though alcohol content is high, it's masked by a vivid freshness that is quite unusual for a warm vintage. The wine reeks of citrus fruits (lemon and grapefruit) and also citronella and mowed grass. It has a well-rounded vegetality and it shows a forceful minerality. There are hints of green almond and chlorophyll tones in the lingering finale. Just let it rest a while longer and it will give you great satisfaction. I'm willing to bet on it... (Angelo Peretti).
