Born from the passion and persistence of the founder Roberto, with the help of his wife Nicoletta and his two sons Alberto and Gianni, the farm is located in the Oriane area, which gives its name both to the PDO wine and to the extra virgin olive oil of their own production. The wide terraces that distinguish the Tremosine sul Garda plateau, known as “balze”, have always made the agriculture in the area prosperous, helped by the sunny weather with summers never sultry and mild winters.
Back to the roots
80 years ago in the Oriane farm there was already a vineyard cultivated by the founder’s grandfather, then times have changed and agriculture was abandoned in favor of tourism. It is only over the past few years that some people of Tremosine s/G, including the Zanetti Family, have rediscovered tasks and passions once forgotten.
Little by little through a large work of deforestation and after levelling and cleaning the uncultivated land the family has indeed recreated and expanded the vineyard by planting over 3000 cuttings of Marzemino and Rebo which after three years has given the first grape harvest.
The first harvest in 2010 was the first achievement, but a greater one and a huge recognition of the work done was when the Oriane wine obtained the “Protected Designation of Origin” (PDO) certification, becoming the first Marzemino PDO in the Alto Garda Bresciano Park.
At the same time also the olive grove was extended by planting 90 olive seedlings of Casaliva cultivar, typical of the Garda area, and by acquiring the adjoining olive grove already composed of decennial olive trees. In this way it was possible to reach high production rates of olives.
