Selva Capuzza is a small farm located 4 km south of Lake Garda’s coast in a very exclusive area. Selva Capuzza is the ancient name of the locality, in fact, some countryside areas situated at the south of the lake were called “Silvae” (wild place) during Roman times. The property is a little ecological oasis: inside of it, hunting is prohibited, so that the wild animals (hares, foxes, pheasant, squirrels, owls) can stay and thrive in safe and peaceful Selva Capuzza. 10 000 m2 of remarkable land, farmed by the Formentini family! A mineral and fragrant white wine made from the grape variety Turbiana. Whimsical restaurant Cascina Capuzza and Agriturismo Borgo San Donino. Dreamy walk through vineyards, meadows, and a truffle plantation.

- Sustainability Criteria -
We are moving away from monoculture farming. The presence of other species other than vines such as trees and cover crops, in a stride, to increase biodiversity in our grounds. This presence of woods and varied flora, a well as a prohibition of hunting on our grounds, encourages the diversity of fauna such as wild animals and insects.We maintain a year-round soil vegetative cover that facilitates rainfall infiltration and slows down the movement of water downslopes, thus keeping nutrients and sustaining biodiversity in the soil.
We don’t use herbicides.
We make use of pest traps and other organic pest management systems.
The footprint of glass bottles. For still wines, we only use glass bottles that don’t exceed 550gr/ bottle, therefore minimizing not only the amount of glass used but also the pollution related to the transport of heavier bottles.The footprint of cardboard packaging.
We only use cardboard packaging that has no plastic lining.
We strive to use workers that live close to the company, as well as local suppliers, as much as possible. This plays an important role in supporting local development but also minimizing pollution by transport.
We have a low employee rotation. This plays an important role in supporting local development and provides training and expertise development of the local community. It proves that the employer/employee relationship is mutually beneficial.
