About the winery
The family behind the winery: Graziella and Adriano Peri bought the palace in 1946. The historical cellar under the palace and the vineyards all around were a strong motivation for Adriano to mantain the tradition of the wine production. The red and white wine produced in Castenedolo by Peri family started gaining Appreciations. In addition, their son who was called Mario, who was later helped by his wife Maria, started feeling a strong passion for managing the winery. The newlyweds in 1972 decided to bottling the best selection of their wines, creating some labels that are still produced now by the Peri family. In the harvesting of 1980, some of the white grapes were used to produce the first Spumante Metode Champennoise, with eccellent results. In 2008 the young son Andrea started an important internationalization project that allowed the products after some years, to reach 3 Continents in the world

History & Geography
Among the moraine hills: In the past centuries the hill of Castenedolo, placed between the city of Brescia and Garda lake, has been one of the preferred destinations by the rich and aristocratic families of the city. They used to spend the summer months and enjoy the rural quiet of the countryside and vineyards. It is not a coincidence that many of the palaces and the villas still have today well-preserved wine cellars decorated in white marble and large oak barrels. There were not only palaces and villas with huge and important cellars which characterized the hills. In 1497 the Queen of Cyprus, Catterina Cornaro, who was one of the most important families in the Venetian Republic, during her official visit in Brescia took the advice of her brother Giorgio (Podestà in Brescia) to sojourned in the village, being delighted by the vineyards on the hill. In August 3rd of 1796, Napoleon Bonaparte decided to place in Castenedolo his general headquarters for the battle he lead in Lonato
