Story

Image module

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

  • Territory

    We are in the classic area of ​​the denomination Bardolino, the oldest production area, formed by the municipalities bordering the southern eastern shore of Lake Garda, which includes the municipalities of Bardolino, Garda, Lasize, Costermano, Affi and Cavaion. Territory formed by gentle morainic hills of glacial origin, equipped with light and gravelly soils. A favorable microclimate for vine cultivation: the proximity of the lake makes the climate milder and less humid than the nearby plain. The Tenuta Sorsei vineyard, raised in espalier, has an east / west exposure and is located at 140 mt s.lm. Cultivated with the organic farming method certified since 1999 by BIOS. The wines of Tenuta Sorsei have very delicate colors, with a low anthocyanic charge (due to the use of a good part of molinara in the typicaluvage), essentially primary, floral, fruity and mineral aromas, with a savory flavor and drink. Low alcohol impact and very ductile in food combining
