It all began with Genesio, born in 1903 and director of a local dairy, who farmed the vineyards that belonged to his father Luigi and acquired few more hectares among them the historic “Vigna di San Gallo”.
During the 50’s and 60’s, Genesio’s son Luigi expanded his property in the traditional district of Conegliano Valdobbiadene and passed down his passion for the winemaking to his son Enrico who graduated at the Oenological School of Conegliano in 1984.
At first, their grapes were sold to the local wine cooperative and later to various wineries in Valdobbiadene.
In early 2000s Elena came on board with her business experience to make real the Biancavigna project.
In 2008 they joined the European Rural Development Policy and provided the cellar with last-generation equipment to raise the quality of the wines and soon affirm their brand.
Today, with almost 30 hectares (74 acres) of vineyards and 600.000 own-branded bottles produced, the Conegliano Valdobbiadene BiancaVigna is reviewed by the most influent Italian and international trade magazines and listed in the best restaurants world-wide.
After fifteen years from its establishment, Elena and Enrico have turned their dream into reality thanks to their determination and a great teamwork.
