Wine Passion

Cantina Ceresa is in front of the tower of San Martino, in the municipality of Pozzolengo and is owned by the Conti’s family who dedicates themselves with passion and wisdom to the production of wine, paying great attention to quality and always aiming for the excellence of the product.
The founder is Andrea Conti who has decided to transform his passion into work, devoting himself to the care of vines and wine production, helped by his wife Grazia. The company is now run by his son Massimo, who, thanks to his father’s teachings and experience gained in the field, continues his family business.

CANTINA CERESA

Cantina Ceresa was originally a monastery built between the 14th and 15th century. The Conti’s family owns a part of the building, including an ancient underground cellar with exposed stone walls, in which are preserved old tools dating back to 1800. The monks themselves used this portion of the building to lower the fermented wine through holes placed on the raised floor. In the beginning, the company had a zootechnical-wine-making orientation, in fact the cellar was originally a stable, and then, during in the years, the Conti’s have acquired new lands until they reached about 10 hectares with olive trees and vines of Trebbiano of Lugana, Merlot, Chardonnay and  Sauvignon.
