The Az Ag La Prendina wine production is quite recent. It began in 1958 with the purchase of the vineyards. After extensive re-working we planted new vineyards based on our experience at Cavalchina. The existence of La Prendina as a farm goes back many years. Maps and documents of the Gonzaga period indicate the existence of the La Prendina estate. Also the evidence of the buildings such as the tower and dovecote suggests a much older existence.
Initially wines were sold under the Cavalchina name. The first wine to use the La Prendina name was a Merlot bottled in 1980 for the celebrated chef Gualtiero Marchesi. The Merlot remains the wine that best expresses the character of La Prendina.
By 1990 all La Prendina’s wines were sold under its own brand and started to be recognised in tastings and guides for its Bordeaux style, particularly with Vigneto del Falcone.
