SILENZI DI TERRA

Our grapes in Lugana

We created a collection of wines in which passion, knowledge and attitude towards innovation are mixed with our love for this territory. Our wines are characterized by three particular features: pleasant saltiness, full structure and harmony of flavors.
OUR PHILOSOPHY

A shared passion

for wine and enology unites Maurizio Venegoni, his son Andrea, and his brother in law Massimo Pinetti. Outweighed by their jobs respectively in the food industry and interior design, this fascination of theirs remains just a hobby for many years.

Travels

As time passes by, their passion grows thanks to studies, learning experiences and tours of the best wine production areas in Italy. This goes on until they choose to turn their enthusiasm into a brand new business project.

Firstly they visit many vineyards of Piemonte, Veneto and Lombardia in order to find a vineyard suitable for their project. Their final choice is located in the Lugana region in the Garda Lake area, a beautiful place they immediately fall in love with.

Then a local agronomist and oenologist are added to the team because they were essential to create a high quality range of wines from the Garda Lake beautiful surroundings.

The name

Lastly a name for this new project becomes necessary. Inspired by the picture of a vineyard blanketed with snow, Maurizio reminds the lyrics of a 1978 musical album by the italian progressive rock band Banco del Mutuo Soccorso.

"In the sky and other silent things I struggle to live, oh Mother Earth, as nothing more than a tree and nothing less than a star, and in every sound and silence of the Earth."
Francesco Di Giacomo – BMS – Album: "...di Terra"

This statement describes the importance of silence and the primeval bond existing between human beings and their roots. These factors are also very important in winemaking when wine is considered a masterpiece that comes from a deep respect for nature with its strenghts and fragilities.

The collection

Today Silenzi di Terra offers a range of wines where passion, technical proficiency, and a taste for innovation are mixed with the love for these territories. Our main wine is Lugana which is produced in our vineyard that is certified as organic. It is a pleasantly sapid and fresh white wine, perfect as a complement to a relaxing day spent by the lake.

The choice of organic was made in order to fully respect morphological, cultural, and weather conditions but also to create a sustainability-oriented business strategy.

The range of products is enriched by the wines that Maurizio, Massimo and Andrea like to call "purposely made by our neighbours" - Chiaretto, Groppello, Custoza, Moscato di Scanzo and others.

A DREAMLAND

A small blue sea

Nestled between the Alps and the Padana Plain surrounded by palm trees, oleanders, olive trees and vines. All around it many lively villages and hamlets, shores and small harbours, thermal baths and nature reserves.

Just like it happened to Catullus, the first poet to celebrate it in his verses, Maurizio, Massimo e Andrea fell in love with the Garda Lake.

That is an ideal place for tailor-made holidays: for those who love nature and sport, for those who want to visit places rich in history and culture. It is also a real paradise for food and wine lovers.

This territory displays different kinds of soil: an alluvial plain, morainic hills, the slopes of the Pre-Alps, and lake shores.

The area called Lugana is located south of the Garda Lake and stretches from the towns of Desenzano and Lonato to Peschiera and Pozzolengo. This morainic territory, rich in clay and sedimentary rocks and characterized by a mild climate, gifts its wines with good saltiness, structure, and harmony in flavors.
