Bio diversity


Our wines are born in the Breganze DOC district, an area that combines a number of favorable and unique geoclimatic factors for grape growing and wine production.

Biodiversity is certainly the hallmark of the area: morainic and volcanic hills that produce high-grade white wines and a plain with gravelly, draining soils that yields red wines of great character.

DOC Breganze

The territory of DOC Breganze, which lies between the Brenta and Astico rivers, was established in 1969. Famous for Vespaiola, the place’s identifying white grape variety, it has also experienced increasing recognition over the years for international grape varieties such as Cabernet, Merlot, and Pinot Noir.

Soils are of volcanic origin in the hilly area (tuff, basalt) and of alluvial origin in the valley bottoms and plains (gravel, pebbles, limestone).

Tradition thousands of years old

The Breganze DOC not only offers an ideal habitat for vines, but also boasts an ancient winemaking tradition, as evidenced by the drafting in Bassano del Grappa in 1295 of one of the world’s earliest known specifications for vineyard cultivation and winemaking.

A tradition that, thanks to the constant improvement of techniques and the far-sightedness of our winemakers, is now appreciated by connoisseurs all over the world.


Vespaiola is a white grape variety indigenous to Breganze. The origin of the name comes from the fact that its typical sweetness in the ripening stage attracts Wasps, who go greedy for its must.

The wine made from this variety is called Vespaiolo: it is a dry white, characterized by marked acidity and flavor. Typical aromatic descriptors are hints of tropical fruit, lemon, white flowers, and balsamic.
