In Venegazzù of Volpago del Montello, on the slopes of the Riviera with the same name located in the heart of Marca Trevigiana, extend 60 hectares of the Azienda Agricola Conte Loredan Gasparini. An area historically acclaimed for its quality wine production, so much that in 1590 the historian Bonifacio sang its praises in his “Trevigiana History” sustaining that “the Trevigi countryside has woodlands useful for timber and for hunting… The land produces (…) excellent wines and the most remarkable is the one of the Montello Riviera” which consists of clay earth rich in iron and minerals.
Founded in the 50s by Count Piero Loredan, direct descendant of the Doge of Venice Leonardo Loredan (who chose the territory of “Vignigazzu” to establish his residence in a magnificent Palladian villa), in 1973 the business passed under the property and direction of the present owner, Mr. Giancarlo Palla. From its beginnings the founder planted the company’s tenements vines such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbech in order to produce highly esteemed quality wines.
Count Loredan Gasparini
Behind a great Wine, there is a man and a passion.
A few years after the end of World War II, at the end of the’40s, Count Piero Loredan realized that it would be possible to accomplish an extraordinary success over the Venegazzù land, producing a wine of the highest quality. Certainly this is an extraordinary quality, particularly concerning the land. A land that, until that time, had shown remarkable potential, but it had not found a man with Love for Wine and a Passion for Quality. As a result, in 1951, the first “Red wine of Venegazzù” was born.
Four elements of our Wine
Our TERRITORY: a beautiful natural art work that we respect … using 100% renewable energy.
Our LOVE FOR WINE: that is not rational, coming from the depth of our heart.
Our PASSION FOR QUALITY: that is a rational and continuous energy, searching for the ideal Wine, which does not want to be the expression of an absolute style, being an end in itself, but the product of a unique terroir.
Therefore, a TERROIR which is the synthesis of an infinite interaction between the Environment and us, living beings who inhabit it with our traditions. This is a balance of force and energies which specifically belong to this place, unique and incomparable.
