The soils of the Conegliano Valdobbiadene area are ancient. Part of the hills were formed by glacial movement of the Dolomites and have a deep substrate of iron-rich pebbles, gravel and clay. In the areas where the action of the glaciers was not affective the soils are composed of marls and sandstone. The Glera grape variety has found its place in this region, and has been thriving on the hills for over three centuries.
Our estate lies in Conegliano Valdobbiadene, a hilly area sandwiched between the Prealps and the sea, where the climate is temperate with cool breezes, and where the significant rainfalls are absorbed rapidly by the characteristic local soil. The hills stretch from east to west and have south-facing slopes where the vines grow basking in the sunshine.
This has been possible not only thanks to the suitable microclimate and soils: the area is also abundant in culture, tradition and wonderful landscapes. Venice is close by and is always a source of inspiration, with its maze of calli and canals, and campi that open up to wonderful church domes and splendid heritage monuments and landmarks.
