Azienda Agricola Conte Loredan Gasparini is located in Venegazzù of Volpago del Montello, on the slopes of the Riviera in the heart of Marca Trevigiana, Veneto region. This is an area historically acclaimed for its quality wine production; so much so that in 1590 the historian Bonifacio sang its praises in his “Trevigiana History” sustaining that “the Trevigi countryside has woodlands useful for timber and for hunting…the land produces (…) excellent wines and the most remarkable is the one of the Montello Riviera” which consists of clay rich in iron and minerals.
Founded in the 1950s by Count Piero Loredan, direct descendant of the Doge of Venice Leonardo Loredan (who chose the territory of “Vignigazzu” to establish his residence in a magnificent Palladian villa), in 1973 the business passed under the property and direction of the present owner, Mr. Giancarlo Palla. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec are the main varietals grown on the estates' 60 hectares of land.
