Nino Franco

Veneto

Valdobbiadene is located in the northeast of Italy in the region called the Veneto. This is the region that we know for Amarone and Soave – and as well for Prosecco. It is very hilly in the zone of production and it nestles up against the scenic slopes of the pre-Alps. <p>The Franco winery was born here eighty years ago. Its founder Antonio set his sights on good quality production. Under his son Nino the winery remained focused on quality and it expanded its operations and markets. But it is Primo, the third generation proprietor, who has brought the winery to the forefront of today’s Prosecco market. <p>Primo Franco took his diploma of oenology at the Scuola di Enologia in Conegliano (Veneto). He then decided to develop his own approach to the growth of the vines and the production of Prosecco at the modern winery. Since October 1990 Primo has utilized non-traditional cultivation techniques combined with the old varietal clones of Prosecco. The result is a range of quality Prosecco wines where the potential of the grape and wine style has been realized. Prosecco Nino Franco is recognized internationally by many of the world’s wine writers and specialists including the top authority on Italian wines- Gambero Rosso. Other very favorable recognition is given by Burton Anderson, Robert Parker Jr., Food and Wine Magazine and The Wine Spectator. <p>In 2003 Primo introduced a single vineyard Prosecco called Rive di San Floriano. This is taking Prosecco to new heights as cru Prosecco is something new to the world. Upon review and tasting of the processes in the vineyard and cellar, this is a gem waiting to be discovered. <p>In 2005 another dream was realized. Primo created a rose brut sparkling wine using the Charmat technique and has made this wine creamy and similar in style to his excellent versions of Prosecco.
