A LOVE FOR WINE AND THE LAND
A history as long as the rows of our vineyards
<strong>Gazing out across the vineyards surrounding our winery is like looking into our history</strong>. Year after year, as our vines have spread their roots ever deeper into the soil, we have constantly built and honed our expertise. It all began in the 1970s, when Giacomo Salmaso transformed what was originally a traditional farm into a winery that has since gone on to evolve over time and adapt to the changing tastes and customs of the consumer while never losing its identity.
<strong>Welcoming you into our winery</strong> today are Diego, Riccardo, Nadia, Laura and Chiara, who run the family business with the same passion as always, tending its 50 hectares of vineyards in full respect of the spirit and nature of these hills and their own personal heritage. They tend this land with the care and attention it deserves, aware of the fact that they are the custodians of the values of a straightforward, closely-knit family that has held on to its identity and continues to express it in its wines.
THE FIVE ELEMENTS
The five elements of nature transformed into distinguishing traits of the labels identifying our wines
<strong>The Salmaso family and its wines share the same origins</strong>, at Montegrotto Terme in the Euganean Hills. A place defined by softly rolling hills filling the horizon, and mile upon mile of vine rows. It is only natural that the surroundings we grew up, live and work in are also reflected in the labels on our bottles. This is why each of our product lines is identified by a natural element: water, which ceaselessly nourishes the soil, air, which gives our hills their many unique microclimates, earth, which imbues each wine with its own distinct aromas and flavours, fire, reminding us of the volcanic origins of this territory, and the time needed to patiently transform the grapes into wine. A choice that reveals a great deal about us and our relationship with the environment surrounding us.
