Venegazzu/Loredan Gasparini

The Azienda Agricola “Conte Loredan Gasparini/Venegazzù” is located in Venegazzù di Volpago del Montello, at the foot of the hills bearing the same name and in the heart of the Marca Trevigiana. This area has been historically devoted to the production of very fine wines in fact, back in 1590, the historian Bonifacio praised it in his “Historia Trevigiana” stating: “…the land produces excellent wine and the best one is along the river banks of Montello”. This area has a clayey soil very rich in iron and mineral components. The winery was founded around 1950 by Count Piero Loredan, a direct heir of the Doge of Venice Leonardo Loredan who established his residence in a gorgeous Palladian Villa. Since the beginning the founder decided to grow Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec according to his philosophy of respecting and enhancing the bond between varietals and territory. The Bordeaux blends produced have become symbols of refined wines so that the renowned Encyclopaedia Treccani, the pillar of Italian knowledge, has identified under “Venegazzù” the name of “…a fine red table wine produced in limited quantity in the area of Venegazzù”.
