The hallmarks of this diminutive 15 hectare estate are working with indigenous varieties of grape, completely organic viticulture and winemaking, and absolute attention to detail.   The wines are graceful and delicate, filled with finesse.

Working in the Garda Brescaiano DOC, Averoldi produces a range of wines from varieties such as Gropello, a scented, Pinot-like grape variety native to Lombardy and Marzimino, as well as the more familiar Pinot Grigio and Riesling.
