Nino Franco winery was founded in 1919 by Antonio Franco. The winery is located in the village of Valdobbiadene, 60 kilometers north of Venice. This is considered the most prestigious and historical Prosecco production zone.
- The traditional grape variety used for Prosecco production is Glera. This grape is grown on the steep hills that surround Valdobbiadene, where the grape can find the best terroir conditions to enhance aromas and structure.
- All grapes are manually harvested from extremely steep and diverse vineyards in the Docg area; each vineyard is unique in terms of elevation, soil composition, exposure and microclimate.
- Today, Primo Franco and his daughter Silvia run the winery. Primo Franco has pioneered the single vineyard vintage Prosecco production with the aim of showcasing the incredible diversity of the unique terroir of Valdobbiadene. He is one of the very few winemakers who decided to export only Prosecco Docg.
- The prestige and quality of this winery are recognized worldwide. Nino Franco was the first winery to introduce a Prosecco to the wine lists of Michelin Star Restaurants in Italy.
