Quality and Tradition
The Caven Camuna winery was established in 1982 by the brothers Stefano and Simone Nera. The name derives from the fact that in ancient times a place called Caven, where the wine estate’s premises are situated, was inhabited by a Camunian population, of which archaeological finds of historical value have been uncovered, arousing great interest among researchers and experts on the subject. One of these rock drawings, called “Mother Earth” – the symbol of fertility and the industriousness of this civilization – undoubtedly the most interesting, is preserved in palazzo Besta in Teglio. A path called “The archaeological path of Caven” , which crosses the places where these archaeological finds were discovered, has also been built.
Farming and Culture
Initially, the Azienda Agricola Caven Camuna winery owned a vineyard in Caven, in the commune of Teglio at 650 metres above sea level, and it owned 5 hectares of vineyards that were joined together. Over the years, the wine estate has devoted a lot of energy and resources to buy several parcels of vineyards in the various areas of Valtellina Superiore D.O.C.G.: Inferno, Sassella, Grumello and Valgella. Today, the winery has at its disposal a total of 30 hectares of vineyards, considering its own property and rented vineyards, making it the major vine-growing company in Valtellina, in terms of surface area planted to vine at its disposal.
Of the 30 hectares at its disposal, nearly 13 hectares are in the Inferno subzone, the smallest in size in the Valtellina, with 55 hectares registered in the vineyard register. The numerous awards won during the most important national and international wine competitions testify to the exceptional work performed by the winery
