About La Meridiana

La Meridiana is a small family business situated in the heart of the beautiful countryside Peunago del Garda. Grandfather Agostos’ family has been in the wine producing business for hundreds of years. He was born just a 2 kilometers from where La Meridiana cantina is situated, his vinyards remain at his birthplace in Monteacuto.

Agosto is passionate about his wines and his oil and indeed the place he was lucky enough to be born in. I visited the cantina for a tasting and afterwards was given a tour of the vineyards and olive groves.  When we were returning to the cantina from the fields Agosto told us that every morning when he woke up he thanked God for his good fortune in being born in such a beautiful area.

Agostos passion shines through in his wine, which has won many awards…..La Meridiana’s Groppello DOC won gold at the Fiera Peunago del Garda. Although the Valtenesi is primarily the region for Garda Classico Rosso, La Merdiana also produce a fantastic Chardonnay.

La Meridian has also won awards for it’s olive oil.
