Nunzio Ghiraldi

About Nunzio Ghiraldi

For Nunzio Ghiraldi the choice to be a winemaker was born from the desire to follow his natural inclination: to live the countryside and work his own land. It was his grandfather Nunzio, an engineer from Cremona, who had the happy intuition to buy the Podere Sant’Onorata in the countryside of Lugana di Sirmione in the early ’50s. It was a Lugana still “in nuce” and primordial, but that already illuminated it and made it dream: the turquoise waters of the lake just a few steps from the farm, the temperate breezes that blew from the nearby mountains to crown the lake and that clay then…in winter soft and muddy, in summer hard and inviolable.

But he felt that it was the right soil for those vines of Lugana Trebbiano he intended to plant.|And that he did.|The seed was sown. Yesterday like today, this is the ‘genius loci’ that inspires us every day. Thus Nunzio, once he completed the law studies he had undertaken in his father’s footsteps, decided to follow his own natural inclination.
