The Bettili family, originally from the town of Soave, are winegrowers since the early decades of the twentieth century, in addition to being winemakers and wine traders. In 1965, Siro, the father of Cristiana, leaves the original family vineyards to buy a farm in the hinterland of Garda lake, in Cavaion. Discovering that this land is suited to the cultivation of vines, Siro decided to continue the family tradition and begins to cultivate the forty year old vineyard existing on the estate.
In 1999 Cristiana enters in the company, converting the 3 hectares of vineyards into organic practices. Between 2002 and 2005 the vineyard is renovated with the modern way of training, Guyot.
Tenuta Sorsei takes its name from an ancient location, Sorsei, where there was a well where everyone drew water from. The wells, as the stone walls, are widespread in the town of Cavaion, a pretty little town in the hinterland of Lake Garda.
