A story passed down over four generations

Tenuta Roveglia grew from the love for the Lugana area of a Swiss business man, Federico Zweifel, who had immigrated to Lombardy at the end of the 19th century.

Federico brought in the first vines. His son, Giusto Zweifel, continued the passion of his father with rigour, strengthening the production of wine. In the 1980′s, a new generation took over — Giusto’s son-in-law Giovanni Felice Azzone, a member of Italy’s Royal Society — the Lincean Academy.

He brought to bear the thoroughness of scientific research on the practice of winemaking. Giusto‚Äôs daughter, Annarosa Zweifel, has dedicated herself for years now to uncovering traces of the estate’s rustic past. Their daughters Sara, Vanessa and Babettli continue today with the family tradition.
