The Bettili family, originally from Soave, has been cultivating the vine since the early decades of the twentieth century, devoting itself also to the vinification of its own grapes and to the wine trade. In 1965 Siro, Cristiana’s father, left the vineyards of his family of origin to buy a farm in the Garda hinterland, in Cavaion, where he devoted himself mainly to the breeding of chickens and the production of eggs for consumption. The territory, however, is suited to viticulture and in the company we continue the family tradition, cultivating pre-existing vines of over forty years. In 1999, with the definitive entry of Cristiana into the company, the breeding and the vineyards are converted to the organic farming method. Between 2002 and 2005 the vineyard is renewed with the modern Guyot breeding techniques. The extension of the Tenuta Sorsei vineyard is currently 3 hectares.
Tenuta Sorsei takes its name from the ancient locality “Sorsei” where there was a well from which everyone drew and sipped. Wells like the seregno stone walls are widespread in the town of Cavaion, a charming town in the Garda hinterland. The logo, in fact, recalls the lake, the Bardolino wine and the berry is the enchanted oasis among the flowers that mother Maria Luigia cares with love. It is the freshness of this glimpse of life that you will find in its organic wines
