Tenuta Roveglia vineyards are on the southern shores of Lake Garda in an area heralded for its wine since the Romans. Their Lugana embodies this wine region’s most acclaimed features: a fruity accent with a dry, subtle finish and a delicate refined bouquet. Tenuta Roveglia grows and harvest its own grapes and bottles their own wine.
Tenuta Roveglia grew from the love for the Lugana area of a Swiss business man, Federico Zweifel, who had immigrated to Lombardy at the end of the 19th century. Federico brought in the first vines. His son, Giusto Zweifel, continued the passion of his father with rigour, strengthening the production of wine. In the 1980′s, a new generation took over — Giusto’s son-in-law Giovanni Felice Azzone, a member of Italy’s Royal Society — the Lincean Academy.
