Lugana is a wine of remote origins and during its history it has achieved many successes and received wide recognition. It is produced to the south of Lake Garda in a small area between Peschiera and Desenzano. Other communes in the territory are Lonato, Pozzolengo and Sirmione, all in the province of Brescia.
The favorable climatic conditions due to the effects of the lake water have always favored lush growth by the vines planted around Garda’s shores. The wines coming from the north, south, east and west of the lake are now clearly distinguished one from another. But they were once lumped together as Rhetic wines.
