About the Producer
Tradition and passion for the earth and its fruits have been handed down for generations in the Ronca Family, from the great grandfather Ulterico to his son Walter, and finally to Massimo who has made winemaking his life.
The Ronca family has been tending to their vines at Cantina Ronca on the gentile hills in the Sommacampagna area since the 1970’s. In 2006 Massimo and his family moved to the Sommacampagna winery estate where the new wine cellar had just been built in order to dedicate their lives to wine making and to the countryside. The family also owns 5 hectares of kiwi plants. Since the 90’s the Veneto region has become the largest producer of Kiwi after New Zealand. The results, as Slow Food has described, are decisively interesting, the Ronca wines are rich in character and fully express the minerality and richness of the Morenic hills region.
The Ronca’s vineyards are located in the renowned Bardolino and Custoza DOC area to the South of the Garda Lake, within the Sommacampagna district. The new, modern wine cellar, built in 2006, is fully equipped for the numerous autochthonous grape varieties growing on the winery estate, such as Garganega, Corvina, Trebbianello, Trebbiano Toscano, leaving space also for international grape varieties such as Pinot grigio and Chardonnay. This ample choice enables the aromatic potential of each wine with the typical minerality of the Morenic hills to be elevated to its highest potential.
Only the best, perfectly mature and carefully hand selected grapes are used from the winery estate’s own vineyards. The selection of Ronca wines is wide, offering the maximum expression of the Morenic hills and Lake Garda area. They are the fruit of the special temperate climate and are the loving work of an expert team of wine makers. The winery is a perfect marriage of state of the art technology and respect for nature. The wine cellar hosts 80 stainless steel tanks that are used for the Vinification and the stocking of wines, as well as an area dedicated to the ageing and refining in oak barriques.
