03/08/2018

Passion, tradition, research and excellence are the fundamental values of this winery and its brand, each with their own unique, unmistakable style

In 1887 from the love and passion of master wine-maker Francesco Mionetto for the land led him to open this winery set amidst the gently rolling hills of Valdobbiadene, in the heart of Prosecco area.

Since the very beginning, Mionetto has always been a modern, innovative company able to anticipate fashions and trends whilst at the same time maintaining a strong bond with the traditions of its homeland, a feature which still today sets it apart from other sparkling wine producers.
