Gorgo was established in 1973 in the village of Custoza. Originally only 22 hectares, the estate now stretched over 60 hectares in the ‘Bianco di Custoza’ and ‘Bardolino’ production areas. The estate is owned and managed by Roberto Bricolo with a skilled viticultural team who have been in place for nearly 30 years. All the wines are hand crafted and of very high quality. The light, white soils of the region are full of pebbles and silt rich in calcium which gives the wines a distinctive mineral character.
