“After fighting in the second world war my father Italo starts to help his own father Silvio to cultivate and to look after the small cattle farm.
In 1947 Grandad Silvio takes part in the wine festival of Valdobbiadene with his product and wins first prize, a valuable acknowledgement that paid the years of hard work in the vineyards where in those days “everything was carried out by hand“.
The idea to convert the stable to a restaurant was thought in the late 80s by involving my wife Adriana, my mother Antonietta and my brothers together with the aim to serve products of the land with the family recepies. At first we served only a few but still well-prepared dishes such as salami, bean soup and the spit that my mother cooked every Sunday for the family.
Over the years the cuisine enrichens thanks to the passion and commitment of my wife Adriana and subsequently Teresa my daughter-in-law by enhancing our home grown.
Prosecco becomes the place, the story and above all the tow for Valdobbiadene becoming with time a very much appreciated food and wine destination.
Following a far-sighted vision in 2004 we inaugurate 6 bedrooms after turning our old stable into accomodation to welcome our guests and to give them a unique experience among the Trevigian hills.
Elisa and Enrico, my children have been by my side in the last few years. After studying languages and working in the tourist field Elisa looks after our guests and gives support to the running of the activity, whereas Enrico after graduating as wine making expert at the Cerletti wine School of Conegliano follows the whole process of Valdobbiadene DOCG production from the land to the final product.”
