The winery

Timeless winemaking tradition

In the heart of Prosecco Superiore, in an area particularly suited to viticulture, originates the story of Riva dei Frati, which owes its name to the place where the vineyards are located: an abbey forgotten by time and a steep slope where the truest Prosecco grapes refine their fragrance. We are in one of the rarest areas of the Valdobbiadene territory; among these hills there are gentle slopes, adorned with magnificent rows of vines, where for centuries the skilful tradition of man has excelled in the cultivation of vines.

The winemaking tradition is what has always distinguished the history of our family, especially with the production of fine wines from the renowned area of Santo Stefano di Valdobbiadene since the early 1900s.
