Product Details

Groppello is an autochthonous (indigenous) red-wine grape variety grown all along the southwestern side of Lake Garda in northern Italy. The name of this variety came from the Italian word Groppo, which means Knot, given to it because of the compactness of the grape bunches hanging from the vines.The Garda DOC that makes use of the variety straddles the regional border between Lombardy and Veneto, and is one of very few DOCs to cross over from one region to another. This may seem very forward-looking and collaborative (it should not be forgotten that Italian regional unity was only achieved in the late 19th Century), but divisions remain: on the Veneto side of the border, Gropello retains its local name, Rossignola.
