In a old courtyard of 1897, situated on the morainic hills at 3 kilometers distance from the Garda lake, the Corte Sant'Arcadio farm grows vines and olives on its 15 hectares of vineyards and 1 hectare of olive-grove. The Giacopuzzi family, who runs the farm, also open a tourist board and lodging at the premises. Much sand, mud and clay in the composition of the soil of the 20 years old vineyards, the growing of the vinesin rows (Custoza) and in vine-trellis (Bardolino) are the basic ingredients and a guarantee of genuineness of the wines. Only natural treatment is used in the cultivation. The quality is kept under control. The picking is manual and the cases are carried to the cellars by hand, so as to reduce the risk of oxidation. Very noble must is obtained. The variety of the wines are ample: Bianco di Custoza (with the cru La Boschetta), Bardolino, Le Banchette (Cabernet Sauvignon) and a red Cortigiano, kept in barrels for 12 months and then bottled. The wines are marketed to restaurants and wine-shop in Italy, Germany, Switzerland and the U.S.A.
