Azienda Agricola Cavalchina  is located in Custoza, a district of Sommacampagna, province of Verona

The estate was established at the beginning of the 1900s, when the first vineyards were purchased. The cellar was built later and part of it was used as a distillery of grape marc till 1967. In 1962 Cavalchina was the first winery to call the white wine of this area (a blend of  Fernanda, Trebbiano and Garganega grapes) “Custoza” and to sell it in Rome and in Milan, the most important markets of the time. Only the grape varietals that are most suited for the area are grown, yields are kept low and only the best clusters go into the wine that is bottled. Modern technology is used in the cellar, but tradition is also respected. The wines produced are: Bianco di Custoza DOC, Bardolino DOC, Bardolino Chiaretto, Bardolino Superiore DOCG.
