Azienda Agricola Prendina is located in Monzambano, province of Mantova, in the region of Lombardia. This estate was purchased by the Piona family in 1958 and vineyards were planted. The origins of La Prendina go back to the times of the Gonzaga, Lords of Mantova (XIV century). In the beginning the wines were released with the label of La Cavalchina and the first wine with the label of La Prendina was a Merlot bottled in 1980 for the famous chef Gualtiero Marchesi. As of 1990 the wines of this estate have their own brand. Environment friendly practices are followed in the vineyards in order to favour the concentration in the wines, without altering but enhancing the main characteristics of the different grape varieties. The wines produced are Merlot Garda DOC, Cabernet Sauvignon Garda DOC, Pinot Bianco Garda DOC, Sauvignon Garda DOC and Pinot Grigio Provincia di Mantova IGT.
