Caven Camuna

The CAVEN CAMUNA farm was founded in 1982 by the brothers Stefano and Simone Nera.

“Caven” is the ancient name of the locality where the company is located today. “Camuna” is the name of the civilization that lived in these valleys around 800 BC. and from which Val Camonica takes its name.
Recently, archaeological finds of historical value have come to light in the nearby municipality of Teglio, arousing the interest of various scholars and experts in the field.

One of the most interesting rupestrian testimonies is kept in the Besta di Teglio palace and has the name of "Mother Goddess". It is a symbol of the fertility and industriousness of the Camunas.

To enhance the history of the Camunas and make it known to the public, a path has been created that crosses the places of the finds inside the vineyards of the Pietro NERA winery, the "Archaeological path of Caven".

30 hectares of vineyards in Valtellina

In recent years, the Caven Camuna farm has spent its energies and resources in the purchase of various vineyards in the various areas of the Valtellina Superiore D.O.C.G.: Inferno, Sassella, Grumello and Valgella. To date, the Caven Camuna farm has a total of approximately 30 hectares of vineyards available, between properties and conductions, and this makes it the first winery in Valtellina in terms of available vineyard area.

*Of the 30 hectares, almost 13 hectares are located in the Inferno sub-zone, the smallest in terms of extension in Valtellina, with 55 hectares registered in the vineyard register. The company has also invested substantial resources in the Valgella sub-area, converting more than 8 hectares of vineyards from the ritocchino system to the giropoggio system; the latter allow a partial mechanized tillage of the soil, better spraying and greater photosynthetic activity.

Always sensitive to environmental and sustainability issues, Caven is a cutting-edge company in the choice of practices and materials that are more respectful of nature. This translates into work in the vineyard, the choice of lighter bottles, corks deriving from organic raw materials and much more. Respect and seriousness do not stop at the vineyard and the cellar: the company's objective is now aimed at training the personnel who work in the vineyard, through specific courses concerning pruning which the agricultural expert and oenologist Stefano Nera periodically holds . The transmission of viticultural knowledge is essential for the life of the Valtellinese community, for the conservation of the landscape and for the economy of the region.
