What is Lugana?

Lugana is a picturesque, white wine-specific viticultural region in northern Italy. The vineyard area straddles the regional border between Lombardy in the west and Veneto in the east. It sits at the southern end of Lake Garda, the vines providing a relatively new addition to the landscape of fishing villages and castle-topped towns.

Grape Variety

Lugana DOC uses only one grape variety, namely Turbiana, that is genetically identical to Trebbiano di Lugana and Verdicchio Bianco.

Flavor

To the nose, there are hints of ripe fruit, peaches, yellow apples, rose petals with fresh, balsamic notes. Very fresh and elegant on the palate.

Pairings

Lugana perfect food pairings are seafood and vegetarian dishes or white meats. Sushi is also a great pairing with this delicate and refreshing wine.

Destination:

Lake Garda, Italy

Lake Garda attracts thousands of tourists
every year. It is where most Lugana lovers
meet to taste these wines, so it is no surprise
that this wine makes you travel there with

Why choose Ca’ dei Frati?

Ca’ dei Frati Luaga is Lake Garda’s Pride, very much Internationally loved!

You might have never heard of this fine Italian wine region because it is a small appellation in the southern part of Lake Garda, in Northern Italy.

It is for its hidden personality that makes this location some magic: a gem divided between the provinces of Veneto and Lombardy. 

Definitely worth a visit!

“With my first taste of Lugana, I was transported. No, not to the autostrade. I was transported to the places I wanted to drink this wine next: my patio in the summer, a harbor-side restaurant with the catch-of-the-day on my plate. On a boat that is setting sail for some place distant”
