THE BARDOLINO ESTATE
IN THE HEART OF BARDOLINO
The estate developed from the twelfth century under the leadership of the Rambaldi family. In the second part of the XVIII century, Agostino Guerrieri (1749 – 1833) married Maria Teresa Rambaldi, the last descendant of the Rambaldi and therefore the properties passed to the Guerrieri and eventually to the Rizzardi.Today the Bardolino estate houses the headquarters of Guerrieri-Rizzardi.
The vineyards (45 hectares) and the cellar are located in Bardolino, the centre of the DOC Classic area. The Guerrieri Rizzardi vineyards are located in two of the six municipalities in the Classic area: Bardolino and Cavaion, both located on the hills of the eastern shore of Lake Garda.
The vineyards are located at an altitude of between 70 and 190 meters above sea level. There are 35 different plots with a plant density between 2,000 and 5,000 plants per hectare.
The red grapes grown are Corvina, Rondinella, Sangiovese, Merlot and Ancellotta. The white grapes are Garganega, Cortese and Moscato Bianco. The soils are partially sandy, some more pebbly and with a greater presence of limestone. The climate is temperate, mitigated by the proximity of the lake.
