Lugana Wines Getting Their Due!

A much overlooked wine region that frankly makes the best white wine in the world is finally getting some notice in the wine press.  You really don’t read much about Lugana online or in print, and it’s a shame–though a small region and one overshadowed by its larger, high volume producing cousins in Soave and the Friulan hills, Lugana makes full flavored, rich, chewy whites that mesh perfectly with the seafood dishes you’ll find in the Veneto.

We loved our recent visit with the folks at Le Morette, and look forward to going back and tasting their latest work soon.

One of the great parts of the Lugana wine district is the lovely way these fantastic buildings and vineyards are integrated into a busy region close to big cities like Brescia and Verona.  Lots of boats, a lovely lake, tourists from other parts of the EU, and some of the best white wines in the world.  We took this at Ca’ Lojera as we wrapped a lovely day tasting and exploring.
