Situated in the splendid Euganean Hills countrysdie, at the foot of Monte della Madonna, the 'Colle Mattara' vineyard comes from a tradition passed down from father to son, jealously preserving the passion for vine cultivation yet without forgetting the respect due to nature. In this way the secrets of the art of winemaking, a true family vocation, are kept: another particular aspect of the Venetian vineyard.

The position of the vineyard is perfect: the vines extend along the hill slopes, thus allowing them the heat and light of the sun the whole day; this produces an excellent final quality of the grapes. The new installations and the modern method of growing give an even greater enhanced quality of production in the vineyard. Not less important is the climate and suitability of the terrain for vine cultivation. 'Colle Mattara' provides a splendid example of nature, human activity and passion: all this is contained in the wine produced by the vineyard at Rovolon, giving a flavour as authentic as the Veneto itself.

The grapes are grown and cared for using the latest modern technology, however winemaking here still remains faithful to the traditions and authenticity of the Euganean Hills countryside. This union of tradition and modern technology, nature and labour, together with a continual research for improvement in the quality of our product, results in our 11 different types of wine, almost all meeting the DOC standard in this region of the Veneto.

A visit to the vineyard also provides the opportunity to see Rovolon, a typical town of the Euganean Hills and full of characteristic charm of the area. A Venetian vineyard bursting with charm.
