According to an eonological map dated 1906, the name LENOTTI was already known in the past for the production of the Bardolino classico. At that time the farm sold wines exclusively in butts or demijohns. In the following years untill 1968 the farm constantly increased its production of high-quality wines, by making wine from local grapes and supplying the numerous bottlers of the neighbourhood.

Since 1968, the farm has been bottling and selling the wines directly with the main goal of supplying our clients with high quality products at competitive prices. For almost 40 years of continued increased sales, especially in the export markets, the whole production, that in the meantime has been widening the range of wines as well as their quantity, is being sold exclusively in bottle.

From 1971 to 2004 the farm and its facilities have undergone several enlargements (1971 - 1981 - 1987 - 1988 - 1991- 1996 - 2004/2005 - 2015). The most important of them was carried out in 2004/2005, it led to the complete renovation with total renewal of the winemaking cellar, the barrel cellar, the bottling plant and the construction of a solar panel system capable of guaranteeing the autonomous production of hot water and for heating without energy consumption. In 2015, the new temperature-controlled wine storage area was built and a photovoltaic system was installed on all company roofs to guarantee the energy autonomy of the cellar.
