Cavalchina is the name of the district where the winery is located, probably after the residence of the Conte Cavalchini. It is on the southeast border of the Garda amphitheatre dating from the end of the Ice Age. This area has long been recognised as a vine growing district, indeed in 1848 the land was registered and classified by the ruling Hapsburg authorities in the first and second quality categories. This was based not only on quality but also on consistency of good production, essentially due to the capacity of the soil to stay moist in hot seasons. The Cavalchina district was the site of both first and second War of Independency during the Risorgimento. The memorial basilisk to the 1866 battle is at the entrance to Cavalchina’s estate; it commemorates, in particular, the Prince Amedeo di Savoia wounded at the battle. – Description from Alejandro
