Born in 1966 in Bussolengo, Ermanno Leso lives and works in Villafranca di Verona. In 2000 he took part in the Master Sergio Capellini sculpture courses and even today he spends his time at Segio Capellini’s studio.
From here has stammed his love for shape style and sculpture. Through his research he tends to blend two images of reality: one that is coming from the deepest interior, the other, an objective presence, that can be called reality.
Sergio Piccoli was born in Verona in 1946, where he lives and works as a colorist. He started painting in 1972, immediately showing interest in abstract art. In 1979 he painted large murals for the Verona central train station. In 1989 he was hosted by the America-Italy Society of New York in a large Broadway studio, where he produced 37 artworks later showed during two personal exhibitions. In 1991, upon invitation by the Soviet Cultural Minister, he set up a big personal exhibition at the Arabat Gallery of Moscow, where he also held a lecture about color. In 1997 he was commissioned to create a series of frescos for the Camploy theatre of Verona. In 2001 he was commissioned by Giovanni Martinelli to produce a fresco so named “Infinito” inside the new Sandrà Theatre.

Further information
The origins of our Company date back to 1893, when the hilly land of Custoza gave us the idea to start a new exciting business adventure.
Thanks to the mild microclimate given by the lake and the chemical composition of the soil, we were able to increase the value of the millennial morainic hills, by cultivating the vines in order to produce wine.
We have therefore been preserving, for four generations, the passion for the authentic taste of the wine, following it in each phase, from the vine to the production, to the sale. We believe that our commitment and professionalism are the perfect match needed in order to achieve the high level of excellence, that we continuously aim to reach.
Thanks to the background inherited by our ancestors, we are able to handle the 77 hectares, family property, of vines and take care of the vine, of the wine-making and of the final product sales.
Tradition and innovation work well together, using modern technology that grant more and more improvements for the product quality and the respect of the environment.
We produce 500.000 bottles every year, divided in DOC, reserves, selections and sparkling wines.
We would be more than happy  to let you taste our wines at our winery.
