Valentino Lonardi, young estate owner, born in a winegrowers family. His father and grandfather cultivated the ground and he studied as an agricultural surveyor.
"20 years ago, in collaboration with Piacenza University, we started to automate and then we started to experiment with several new technologies and kinds of wines to grow", Valentino says.
Today the product isn't only a living necessity, it's also an expression of oneself and tradition of the family.
All Costadoro Winery Estates are in Bardolino, on the hills of Lake Garda hills, clasified as the "Bardolino Classico Doc" zone.
The winery, located in the center of the estate, seems to silently regulate the vineyards around it.
