The winery Pizzolato Settimo & Gino was founded in 1981. Initially the company focused the cattle industry, the cultivation and harvesting of fruit and vegetables, in particular kiwi, peaches and strawberries. “I chose to accompany my father at the helm of our farm in 1981 beginning to seek alternative methods to chemical such as integrated pest management and guided.
The grape and wine were excellent products among all agricultural and soon demonstrated a positive to organic methods. In 1991 the wines produced are beginning to be inspected and certified by an inspection body in accordance with Reg. EEC n. 2092/91; also the winemaking techniques and bottling become regulated by a new European statute on organic wine, obtaining organic certification.
The same wine that usually me and my family used to drink at the table, was labeled and sent to a foreign country, far away: thus concretized my dream to taste to others the fruit of my land. It’s been thirty-five and I feel like I have lived so many lives; each year, each vintage is an adventure in itself, difficult, unique and unforgettable. 35 vintages and as many moments lived in family Settimo remembers: “There were many to harvest the grapes, we were family. It was a time of celebration and fatigue never made her feel. We waited all that Grandma Giselda take us a snack that most often consisted of a good sandwich and a “goto de quel bon”. My dad drove Gino choirs and that “Barba”, so named, echoed in the fields. From that beard was born the name of our prestigious -Barbarossa DOCG Malanotte. And then I remember how the voices and noises that accompanied us during the day, slowly diminished and left only the silence in our vineyards. ”
