Established in 2008, Collis Riondo (the parent company of Castelforte) is one of the largest and most important wine producers in Veneto. They are the undisputed leader of viticulture in the Veneto region with over 6,000 hectares of vineyards that are managed daily by more than 2.400 associated farmers. The vineyards cover the main production zones, appellations and grape varieties of the region: Prosecco, Soave, Valpolicella, Ripasso, Amarone, Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, Garganega and Corvina being the most renowned among local and international consumers. The name “Castelforte” is a fusion of the Italian words for castle and fort in honour of the castle and fortified walled town of Soave.
The vineyards are meticulously taken care of every day by several farmers. The winery has some of the most up to date equipment available which helps ensure the quality of the wine.
Castelforte Garganega is a dry and full-bodied varietal white wine aged partly in stainless steel and partly in wood. Intense perfume of almond blossom, citrus and vanilla. Fruity and richly textured with a clean mineral finish. It pairs perfectly with rich pasta dishes and light main courses.
