The production

The winery processes grapes coming from the vineyards located in the heart of the Soave Classico region (from where the wine also gets it name), whose soil is of volcanic origin. 

The annual production is about eighty thousand bottles available in: Soave Classico and its Cru Pressoni, the Recioto di Soave Classico, the sparkling wines and the Grappa di Vinacce di Recioto.

Since its origins, Cantina del Castello has also produced red wines from Valpolicella, such as: Amarone and the Ripasso. The first bottles produced coming from the sixties, are   the same that today are jealously stored in the winery’s private collection.
