About Ca' dei Zago

Veneto, Italy

We are a family farm founded in 1924, and have been vignerons in Valdobbiadene for 5 generations. The culture of the soil fertility is the most important thing for us. We have never used chemical fertilization or herbicides because we cut the grass for the cows, and we use just cows manure. Our objective is to transfer the vineyard balance into the wine, nothing else. Thank you and cheers!
