ZENSON DI PIAVE AMID WAR MEMORIES AND ITS STRONG BOND WITH VENICE

Our dearest childhood memories date back to when we three brothers played in the cellar, watching and disturbing our parents’ daily activities: running up and down the old stairs, amid the oak barrels, running and jumping over the transfer lines, amid piles of demijohns, funnels, tyres and old maps hung on the walls, where you could see our grandparents’ Barbarana House nestled in the estate. A genuine wine “workshop”. The admiration we nurture for the hard work of our father Simeone and of our mother Nori encourages us today, fuelling our great passion, to carry on with this long family tradition in the fascinating world of wine making. To this day, we like to return to where everything started and where year after year, strong and sturdy vines continue
to produce outstanding grapes to make traditional and above all ancient wines.

The Municipal Library of Treviso is home to the old blueprints of the municipality of Zenson di Piave in the 17th Century, which show “Casa Barbarana” close to the centre of town. It was our family’s house with adjacent land where black Rabosa and white Rabosa vines were grown.
