In 1939, Felice Dal Cero, son of Domenico, formerly a winegrower in Montecchia di Crosara near Verona, moved to that same house in Lugana di Sirmione, immediately realizing the area's potential for vine cultivation. After thirty years working in the vineyard and the cellar, his son Pietro took part in the creation of the DOC in 1969, bottling his first wine with the label Lugana Casa dei Frati, later named Ca' dei Frati. In 2012, Pietro Dal Cero passed away, leaving the cultural legacy to his wife Santa Rosa and children Igino, Gian Franco, and Anna Maria. They run the company with the same passion and determination.
