Grapes form a palette of colours that the wine-maker uses to create works of art with personal artistry
It's a poetic image by Albino Piona, of a family that has been growing grapevines and has been producing white, red and rosé wines in the heart of Custoza area since before the Unity of Italy.
Albino, “wine craftsman” as he defines himself, follows personally his “paintings”, that are his wines, from the first sprouts on the grapevines, to the harvest, to the wine-making and to the final bottling. He follows this all with great respect towards the tradition, but at the same time taking constantly care of the new technologies and possible improvements by applying modern techniques.
The show room is a sort of “Naturarte” space for thepublic. The bottles are in view, the barrels, vine shoots and grapes are used as nature design, between the cultural ferments of works of art, theatre, music that re-echo in this space. Passion gets mixed up with passion, Bacchus and the Muses together infuse high temperature to the show room Naturarte.

Custoza 2012 – Albino Piona
It's produced on the morainic hills in the south area of the Garda Lake with highly variable percentages of various white grape varieties. Custoza finds in the Garganega a support for the fresh aromaticity. This Custoza is exemplary for the harmony of fragrances and palate. Delicate and sapid, it's a reference for the denomination and it's the result of 120 years of company history. A style.
