In the heart of the Lugana area on the southern shores of Lake Garda, the winery was established in 1960, when the late Sergio Zenato and his wife Carla started to create quality wines from the local grape variety Trebbiano di Lugana.
The Zenato winery now owns 75 hectares in total, 40 in San Benedetto di Lugana and 35 hectares in Sant’Ambrogio, in the Valpolicella Classico area. The Zenato name is synonymous with Amarone and they have continously produced Amarone and Amarone Riserva of immense complexity and depth, to international acclaim.
As well as Amarone, Zenato produce other wines typical of the region such as Valpolicella and Bardolino. Along with outstanding red wines, Zenato also produce white wines that are renowned for their clean and elegant fruit character.
Over the years Zenato have become one of the most respected family owned wineries in Italy and in 2004, at the London International Wine & Spirits Fair, they were voted among the Top Five Red Wine Producers in Italy. Today, following in the footsteps of their late father, Alberto and Nadia form a well balanced partnership, using their talent and passion to continue their viticultural heritage.
