Our vineyard history was first documented at the beginning of the last century when Antonio, our grandfather, began to plant vines in the hills around the village of Terrossa. A tireless and headstrong man didn’t lose faith when on returning from the First World War he found his vines destroyed by filossera.
Born in 1888, I remember him already old, always without shoes, with a wiry beard. It was he who started to produce wines, in particular sweet ones, filtered using old Dutch filters. These he sold transporting them in barrels and horse drawn carts to Verona’s and Vicenza’s typical bars called osterie and trattorie.
Following Antonio, came my father, a generous and charitable man, often too timid and certainly a nobleman from the past in a world that didn’t always seem to belong to him He left us the nucleus of the actual building, no so many riches, but a big humanity.
