Antonio Franco founded the "Cantine Franco" winery in Valdobbiadene in 1919. Valdobbiadene is located at the foot of the Prealps, in the Venetian region, and is famous for the Prosecco vine and wine production.<BR> This winery is proud to be one of the oldest in Valdobbiadene, located in the town centre, not far away from the countryside and the vineyards.<BR> Thanks to a careful and wise management, the estate has been growing and evolving throughout three generations of producers. Antonio founded it, Nino expanded it and Primo improved the company performance throughout the years. 1982, when Primo took over its management, was the turning point.<BR> Primo began to travel and to successfully export the wines in Europe as well as in the Americas and the Far East. At the same time he invested in the production process in order to make higher quality wines, eliminating all those wines that were atypical for the area. He also started to monitor closely the grape cultivation with the aim of achieving high quality from the raw material level to the final product. Primo Franco was one of the first pioneers to export the Prosecco and to introduce a different sparkling wine than Champagne into the international market. He has been successful, thanks to his open mind personality, his spontaneity, reliability and competence as well as his charm and ability to communicate his love for his job, and last but not least thanks to his high quality and delicious wines.

Our territory is a beautiful work of nature that we try to respect in many ways while consuming only energy from renewable sources, and increasingly limiting the environmental impact of our human activity. Our love for wine is something that is irrational from the bottom of our hearts. Our passion for quality is a voltage that is rational and continues to search for an ideal wine, which is not intended as an expression of style absolute end in itself, as a unique terroir: that of Venegazzù. Our terroir is a synthesis of the endless interactions with the environment we living beings who inhabit it, with all our traditions. A balance of power and energy characteristics of a defined place, unique and unrepeatable.
