About us

Company details

Agriculture is very related to the influence of the mountaineer Lessinian that in these clayey soils founded their first zones.

Pastoralism was the first activity that was soon transformed thanks to the great passion of his uncle Toni.
He was a lover of vine grapes, so he planted the first lab plant nursery where he experienced the various types of cuttings known in those days, the old from Gold, Uliega, Delight and many others.

Then he switched from grapes to eat grapes to make wine. Since 1936, with the intervention of Sante Franchetto the company has changed permanently for viticulture.
Until 1982, the company is a producer of grapes. Then begins the winemaking that completes the path begun by Uncle Toni. Today Antonio Franchetto continues the long history gained from that idea while remaining related to historic vines grapes and typical of these lands: Garganega and Durella.
