About the Winemaker
Alberto Zenato is following in his family's footsteps (his father Sergio is considered to have been the pioneer of the development of Trebbiano di Lugana, worldwide).
From childhood, Alberto began taking his first steps in the world of wine, alongside his father. At the age of ten, he first took part in the harvesting, and later the cultivation of the grapes and then subsequently, he was involved in every stage of the production process that goes from the vineyard to bottle. Today, his intrepid spirit allows him to deal with every aspect of the life of the company, with a strong passion for the work that he carries out. He hopes to convey this to his own son as his father did with him, starting with the little things, such as a single grape and a clod of earth.
