The past and present of a wine and of its region

A unique zone that reaps the benefit of the lake and of the land, a company that has succeeded in interpreting its potential, and a wine that has found its purest expression in this encounter between nature and man: Lugana.

The story of Cà Maiol has always been linked to this special white, due to the far-sightedness and passion for new challenges of Milanese entrepreneur Walter Contato who, in 1967, founded his estate right here on the southern shore of Lake Garda, where the Trebbiano vines have always produced the finest results.

Thanks to his love of this region and its highly-prized wine, over 50 years ago this visionary businessman created, together with other local vinegrowers, what is today the Producers’ Consortium for Lugana D.O.C., an invaluable organization that protects and promotes the excellence of this white treasure from Lake Garda.

The family as a custodian of tradition

Preserving the viti-vinicultural tradition of the zone and representing innovation in the field of wine production have been Cà Maiol’s goals ever since the beginning: objectives that were renewed in 1996 when the estate passed into the hands of the children of the founder, Walter Contato.

The new generation inherited his passion for the region, his love for Lugana wine, and his desire to keep on developing and improving the company’s outstanding products. As a result, the estate’s 130 hectares of land are today the fertile custodians of pioneering winemaking and of a wine with a marked local identity. Thanks to its unique texture and contemporary style, it has succeeded in winning over palates worldwide.
