Home means family, warmth, values and closeness. Each home has a beating heart, and ours is the winery at Selva in Montebello Vicentino. Yes, we meant home and not company because our work is this: the home that our ancestor Giovanni bought in 1928, that gave us the beginning of our story about vines and life. The home, where the Cavazza family began making wine nearly a century ago, holds everything dear to us: memories, traditions, ambition to look towards tomorrow, and a love for things made with care.
Memories and traditions
Our story begins with a house; a house that Giovanni Cavazza bought together with a Bocara vineyard after moving from Montecchia di Crosara, in the province of Verona, to Selva di Montebello Vicentino. It is 1928 and Giovanni has already spent 50 years amongst beloved vineyards, growing up next to them alongside his brothers. This is the year that “Cavazza” and the stories of a vineyard were born. These are stories we tell every day with genuine passion in the old house in Selva, that is still today the home and heart of our company.
Philosophy and creation
The unconditional love we have for those vines, explored a thousand times by children, hold us tightly together as the threads of our lives, designing our present and our future. This is us today, the fourth-generation of the Cavazza family. Before we’re recognized as a big company, we are a big family, built with a cornerstone of values that have defined our identity since our founder Giovanni Cavazza.
Protecting the Landscape
Our grapes, our vineyards, our land: these are the three souls of Cavazza wine. They are inseparable and irreplaceable, all born from the same life-giving source, the environment, and without it nothing would be possible. We’ve always been mindful that we cannot create a quality product without respecting the raw materials. That respect leads us to deeply care for and protect our landscape, with the same commitment we put into our daily work.
