Roncà is a small village a few kilometres from Soave, in the eastern part of the DOC area. After Verona and Lake Garda, Soave is the third tourist centre in the Verona area. Part of the village of Soave's fame is linked to the wine of the same name.
Many still believe that the village takes its name from the wine, called Soave, smooth in texture in Italian, because of its goodness. Its origin actually goes back to the term Suebi, the classic term for Swabians, a barbarian tribe from Eastern Europe who settled here after the collapse of the Roman Empire and the invasions that followed. The location was ideal, a rocky outcrop on the edge of the plain, overlooking the Via Postumia, which surely passed nearby.
Today the village is dominated by a castle dating from the Scaliger era, from which the walls that encircle the entire village unfold in concentric circles. From the top of the castle, you can admire a breathtaking view of the surrounding countryside and the endless expanses of vineyards.
