The Merotto family’s agricultural beginnings can be traced back to Agostino Merotto, an ancestor who was already well-known in the area at the beginning of the 1900s for the quality of his Prosecco. After the period of the two great wars, a time during which there were few notable landmarks in wine production, came a renaissance in agriculture and traditional farming focused on dedicating land to the kind of cultivation it was best suited to. Graziano Merotto started his company in 1972 and showed an immediate gift for wine production. He also had a clear vision regarding the world of sparkling wines. With great sacrifice, hard work, and much trial and error, he was able to achieve renowned levels of excellence, leaving a legacy that was destined to become part of the history of the local area.
The Merotto Winery is located in the heart of the Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG production zone, known for its famous quality proseccos. In these Alpine foothills, the vineyards of Giovanni Merotto are located in a ring of hills surrounding Col San Martino, an ancient Lombard city north of Treviso. Merotto owns 12 hectares of vineyards in this area, and rents another six, for a total annual production of about 2.3 tons of grapes.
