The Zenato family and its wines are the benchmark of a region that has long cultural and historical traditions in quality winemaking. Zenato is a company that possesses a strong link to the richness of its local history and culture, and continues to develop this connection today. The estate is based in a territory that surrounds Lake Garda, an area with an extraordinary microclimate that allows for an optimal growing season. The Zenato family is passionate in their dedication, vigorous research and innovation which translates to the continuing improvement of their wines.
The company started with Sergio Zenato and his wife Carla as they began to produce quality wines from an indigenous varietal, Trebbiano di Lugana, and it has been passed down through the generations to their children, who have maintained and expanded upon this vision. Currently, their daughter Nadia handles the marketing and promotional activity for the company, and their son Alberto oversees all aspects of production, from the growing of the vines to the time when the bottling process is complete. Over time Zenato has explored another very important area of Italian wine production, Valpolicella, where they have dedicated endless efforts to the improvement and success of Amarone production, a wine of noble attributes and prestige.
Zenato has entered into international markets and received the highest accolades from the wine industry’s leading experts, all praise that simply reflects the way in which the company operates on a daily basis. Today Zenato continues to look forward and make investments to develop projects based both in the area of Valpolicella and the area of Lugana.
