Ep. 1014 Erika Marchesini | Wine, Food & Travel With Marc Millon
Welcome to Episode 1014 Marc Millon interviews Erika Marchesini of the Marcello Marchesini Winery 1970 in this episode of Wine, Food & Travel with Marc Millon on the Italian Wine Podcast.

More about today’s winery:
All of the Marchesini Winery’s vines are autochthonous and are situated in the south-east of Lake Garda, specifically in the Bardolino Classic wine area which is the heart of the where the local Veronese wine is produced. They currently produce 900 kgs of grapes from 10 hectares of land that is divided into 4 different vineyards.

The especially mild weather conditions on Lake Garda, even during the winter months, help make this area one of the best for the production of wine. Another important factor is that of the Garda hills, the hills that were formed by the residues of the glaciers that descended into the valley. The land is characterised by a mineral soil, and it is on this warm, dry land rich in sand stones and gravel that their wines were created.
They use different grapes in order to make our Bardolino wine: Corvina that gives body and structure, Corvinone, an older variety of Corvina to be precise that allows you to re-live the Bardolino flavours of the past .There are also the Rondinella and Molinara grapes, which give both lightness and flavour.
They also grow Chardonnay, Garganega and Merlot grapes, which they use to produce their white wine Santi, San Fermo IGP and EriGiò their sweet straw wine.
