Vineyards:
The area of Doc Piave, in which we cultivate our 80 ha of vineyards with red and white grapes for still wines, covers a vast plain of Veneto that is confined to the south by the Adriatic Sea, to the north-west by the gentle hills of Valdobbiadene and Conegliano, is crossed by the river Piave and to north-east borders with Friuli Venezia Giulia region. This region is characterized by the ancient vocation for the wine growing as is testified by the discovering of several archaeological finds, moreover the first Oenological School of Italy was founded there in 1876. Recently, the need for more rational cultivation has induced the producers to renew their vineyards, changing profoundly the production with conversion of the vineyards to specialized culture.
