A family walking the endless path of continuous improvement
The history of the land surrounding Cessalto, which has been well known since the Roman age for its fertility, is inextricably linked with the wine-production tradition of the Corvezzo family.
In the early 1900s, Giuseppe Corvezzo had been working the land for Cessalto’s Venetian Nobility until 1960, when his son, Giovanni, founded the first family’s winery in the current location.
Then, in 1970, due to the knowledge and skills of Renzo and Giuseppe, Giuseppe’s grandsons, the family increased the cultivated area to a total of 140 hectares.
Renzo was a pioneer in the sustainable wine production field back in 1981. At that time, he introduced the integrated pest management in order to reduce the use of pesticides.
Today, thanks to the vision of Renzo’s son, Giovanni Corvezzo, the commitment of the company to a more sustainable wine production is stronger than ever.
The company’s team has worked hard in order to complete the process of organic-conversion of the vineyard started in 2010.
The vineyard organic conversion has been completed in 2017, and now Corvezzo is setting a new benchmark in Northern Italy’s organic wine production, especially for organic Prosecco and organic Pinot Grigio.
