For three generations the Maculan family has been selecting and vinifying the best grapes in Breganze, an enchanting village, set like a small jewel at the foot of the Alps in the Veneto region. The high plains of Asiago offer natural protection and create an extremely mild climate that favors the cultivation of vines and olives. It isn't a coincidence that in the 500s, the Venetian nobility already preferred to spend their summers in this area, sojourning in the splendid villas perfectly designed by the great architect, Andrea Palladio.
