The Visconti family has its roots on Lake Garda for about a century. From the very beginning, they established a close link with the territory, believing in Turbiana vine potential, a native grape already growing in the area even before Lugana . The passion of the Visconti family let the spread of this vine throughout the southern area of Benaco, between Lombardy and Veneto, until it became the most important white berried grape of these territories. The production of Lugana wine is linked to the history of the Visconti family, so much that this name strongly recalls the origin of this white wine. In particular, the Lugana Visconti is one of the most important symbols of the city of Desenzano del Garda. It is proposed with pride and affection by most of the historic places in the city center. In the early 2000s, after decades of activity in the wine sector, the Visconti decided to direct their entrepreneurial activity towards other paths, giving it as an inheritance to another historical family that has always dedicated itself to viticulture, the Formentini family.
