17 Apr 1928 – 2018: We celebrate the 90th harvest of Bocara!
We are more deeply rooted in this place than any other. This is where everything began. What prompted Giovanni to select exactly this plot to become the centre and heart of our winery was the slight wind that blows through the vineyard from the north to the south and caresses the pergola-trained vines while aerating the grapes. A significant factor, especially on hot summer days with high temperatures.
It is no coincidence that in our dialect Bocara means “the place where the wind blows”. The wind is a decisive part and contributes a great deal to the development of the fresh, fruity and spicy character of this wonderful grape, the Garganega, the unrivalled queen of our territory. This plant digs its roots deep into a type of soil that is unique in the world, under the layers of which a volcano pulsed millions of years ago. The presence of basaltic igneous rocks testifies to the existence of the volcano still today. This soil produces a spicy, fragrant wine with a high level of minerality and a typical flavour of almond lingering in the finish.
