Vignato

Davide Vignato's passion is deeply rooted in Gambellara, a quaint village nestled at the base of Monti Lessini in the Veneto region, with it's dark basaltic rocks of volcanic origin, imparting elegance and freshness to its wines. A dormant volcano stands nearby, just 500 meters from the winery. This volcano is set within a park featuring a natural amphitheater and trails leading into the forest. Once, the hands of his grandfather, Rinaldo, Then came the hands of his father, Gian Domenico, today, it's Davide's hands that shape the vineyard. Honoring the legacies of those before him, he has reduced the yield per hectare and turned away from conventional farming. Now, he fully aligns with nature's rhythm, continually evolving, just as nature does. Davide is driven by a vision to showcase Gambellara to the world through distinctive quality wines.
