Where we are
The Quartier del Piave
The natural amphitheater among the largest in Europe, bordered by the Endemione, the Treviso Pre-Alps, the Col Visentin to the north and the Montello to the south, surrounds a flat area created by River Piave due to the melting of glaciers and called the Sernagliese plain or Quartier del Piave.
The lower part (called “grave”), in fact, enjoys a bigger temperature range between day and night, due to the cold wind coming from the north, along the line of River Piave, which comes from the province of Belluno and is channeled in the ancient bed of the river.
This lower zone has been considered until recently not suitable for wine-growing due to the risk of late frosts, which can compromise the harvest, and due to the wetting during the night provoked by the high humidity level along that River Piave. Weather trend of last years and new agricultural techniques, have changed the unfavourable situation allowing very interesting results in wine-growing.
