The Azienda Agricola Fugolo Gianluca was born in Pescantina, in the heart of the Valpolicella area, a few steps from Lake Garda.
Family of farmers for four generations, where the passion and love for the land have been handed down to Gianluca thanks to the work and commitment of his father, grandfather and great-grandfather.
Today Gianluca, following in his father's footsteps, leads the family farm with the same dedication and tenacity, growing peaches, vines and olive trees.
"The fifth-generation, to which I am passing on my same passion and vision of agriculture are my daughters Michela and Sofia."
The vines of the Fugolo Gianluca farm are grown in the "Campagna" vineyard, located a few steps from the peach orchard and the olive grove. This union guarantees a richness to the landscape and a balance for the soil and biodiversity.
The company also cultivates a small portion of olive trees on the morainic hills of Lake Garda.
A look towards the future, without forgetting the teachings of our peasant grandparents: this is how our products are born.
THE SEARCH FOR FLAVORS….
The sweetness of freshly picked ripe peaches, the scent of our native vines in a glass of wine, a drizzle of oil on a slice of bread, are the products that we will let you taste immersed in the greenery of nature.
The white, yellow and nectarine peaches represent the traditional cultivation of the Pescantina area.
Our wines with Veronese and Molinara Corvina grapes represent two native vines rich in history.
Extra virgin olive oil to tell the elegance of the morainic hills and the microclimate of Lake Garda.
Our white, yellow and nectarine peaches are harvested between mid-June and the end of August when the peach reaches the correct degree of ripeness.
In the period following the flowering we proceed with the manual thinning to preserve the quality to the maximum and eliminate those fruits that are too small.
The harvested peaches are processed within the day and passed by hand on the machine that allows us to wash and calibrate them.
The colour of the skin of the fruits is very extensive and intense, the pulp is consistent and juicy, with a characteristic flavour due to the right balance between sugar content and acidity linked to the low vegetative activity of the plants and the particularly favourable climate, thanks to the protection of the hills. and the mildness of Garda.
Our farm grows yellow and white peaches and nectarines from June to August.
