A VOYAGE IN VENETIAN HISTORY

We are vine growers who are also custodians of the history of the Montello zone, a natural oasis 50 km from Venice, a city that has always had a special relationship with the Treviso hills. The Venetians took the timber from our area to construct their vessels that set sail for distant shores, and it is here that – as long ago as the 16th century – wines were produced that Venice sold at higher prices than the others.

HERITAGE

The Montello has always been a zone with a vocation for wine production, to the extent that – as long ago as 1590 – the historian Bonifacius sang its praises in his “Historia Trevigiana” sustaining that “the district of Treviso has forests that are useful for many types of wood and for hunting… These lands produce (…) excellent wines, and the best is that from the Montello Riviera”. Here the wines take on depth and concentration, thanks to clayey soils that are rich in iron and other indispensable minerals for the vines, and which have a typical red colour. The hills rise to an altitude of 370 metres above sea level, and the microclimate combines the thermal excursions deriving from the hilly topography with the influence of the Prealps, which shelter the vineyards from cold winds..

WINES

The experience we have gained over several decades and our profound knowledge of the soils of Venegazzù have led to our wines being a perfect expression of our terroir.

SPARKLING WINES

All the grapes for our sparkling wines, which we began producing in the 1970s, come from our property at Giavera del Montello.

GRAPPAS AND LIQUEURS

Since 1993 we have also owned a distillery, where we produce artisanal grappas and liqueurs from the finest ingredients in order to make products that reveal the absolute quality of our production processes.

TERRITORY

The Montello area – which applied to become a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in 2016 – offers a unique microclimate. Its red soil, clayey and rich in minerals deposited as a result of water erosion of the Alps and the flow into the River Piave of pebbles and other debris, creates an ideal environment for growing vines. The climate is cool and temperate, mitigated by the effect of the Prealps and characterised by regular rainfall, which makes the area a real green lung.
