“Wine – as Vincenzo used to say – is made in the vineyard”, and it is here that every year the story begins, which with a lot of work and passion, will lead to enclosing in the bottle the best that nature can offer us. Vincenzo, of peasant origins, approaches the world of viticulture at a young age. In addition to farming he lends his work by grafting vine shoots and with great carry out he is already beginning to become passionate about rootstocks and clones. After his marriage in the 1950s, due to the economic crisis, he was forced to emigrate to Great Britain for 12 years, where he worked as a gardener.
When he returned to Italy, he bought a small 5-hectare farm in Refrontolo, the evocative birthplace of his wife Maria in the heart of the historic production area of Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore D.O.C.G.
In 1964, he founded the farm that still bears his name, cultivating the vineyards, raising dairy cows, following the woods and, for greater economic support to the family, raising silkworms with mulberries that supported the rows of vines. Vincenzo over the years transmits the experience and passion to his sons Sante, Luciano and Gabriele, who lead the company today. With them, the nephews, Umberto and Francesca, who have studied at the renowned School of Oenology G.B. Cerletti di Conegliano.
Our wine is the fruit of the dedication and care we devote to our vineyards, of love for our land and a passion for what we do. These are our values with which we have grown and which are the basis of our company philosophy, always in search of excellence in respect of tradition.
