Nestled on the shores of Lake Garda close to the pretty town of Bardolino, 30km north of Verona, the Raval estate produces ‘natural’ wines and a delicate olive oil from their 13 hectare estate. Nello Rossi has cultivated their vineyards and olive groves since 1985 and the family now also run a successful agriturismo. They farm mainly the traditional local red grapes but have planted Chardonnay too with great success. The Rossi family are wonderful ambassadors for their wines and the region in general. Their excellent website http://www.agriturismoraval.it has some beautiful photographs that will inspire you to visit Lake Garda and of course, Raval!
