Diego Lavo has been cultivating his passion for the vineyard for over thirty years by taking a professional approach to planting and winemaking. A good many of the new vineyards in Valtènesi have benefited from his work. In ’98 his itinerant consultancy come to rest with the Cantrina winery in Bedizzole, where, along with his work in the vineyard which remained his chosen field of activity, he began to work methodically in the cellar. He first met with Maria Capretti in 2006, to give consultancy on the Pusterla vineyard, and their collaboration took off in 2011. Diego became fascinated by the uniqueness of the Pusterle and the peculiarities of the Invernenga grape. In doing so he took on the challenge of recreating Invernega monovarietals despite the grape being considered virtually impossible to vinify alone; not attempting to do so would have meant an unconditional surrender not in line with his character.
