Back in 1870, when the “Raboso Piave” was confined to few hectares, Antonio Facchin laid the foundations for his winery by setting-up the first vineyards and producing the first wine in Casa Facchin. A precious legacy passed on through generations. ANTONIO FACCHIN pursues a philosophy that combines strictly traditional methods with research and innovation.The town of San Polo, replete with history and Roman ruins, serves as the perfect backdrop for a vineyard that prides itself with upholding local tradition and embracing the roots that helped define it.
Being situated in the heart of prosecco country, Antonio Facchin & Figli prides itself in its high quality spumante. The Prosecco Superiore DOCG, one of the vineyard’s most acclaimed, represents the culmination of dedicated viniculture in conjunction with the region’s Glera grape, a defining factor in the vineyard’s and the Veneto’s success in producing globally acclaimed Prosecco and wines. Located at the foothills of the Dolomites, the vineyard is based in arguably one of Treviso’s most scenic locals. With a rich alpine ecosystem surrounded by centuries of history, a visit to the Facchin & Figli vineyards provides ample opportunity to witness one of northern Italy’s most beautiful areas while being enveloped by a culture of viniculture and gastronomy.
Today the winery works 70 hectares and different varieties of vine such as the white vine varieties Prosecco DOC Treviso, Pinot Grigio and Manzoni Bianco.
The red vine varieties include Raboso DOC del Piave “Géron” and the popular Cabernet DOC Piave “Barucchella”, Cabernet Franc, Merlot as well as the Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso.Their wines are deeply bonded to family traditions, rooted to the soil and location and they’re also a result of a thorough research and therefore a synonym of innovation, extensive study and passion.
“Caminada”, made from dessicated Incrocio Manzoni 6.0.13 grapes and “Samtrà”, a blend of Sauvignon, Manzoni and Traminer, are two of the most extraordinary wines.
The winery also offers a good selection of Grappa such as the “Fior di Raboso” made from Raboso straw wine and Grappa.
As Philippe Margot puts it: ‘A good wine is always a symphony of four motions, performed at the rhythm of the seasons. The sun, the soil, the climate and the vineyards give shape to the opera, while the vintner, a soloist, sets the cadence’
