About the producer:
Susegana – Malibrán winery is situated amidst the hills that extend from Conegliano towards Valdobbiadene, in the province of Treviso, at the base of the Alps. The gentle downward slopes have exhibited their nobility for centuries thanks to the accurate structure of the Prosecco vineyards which enrich them.
Here culture of wine is linked to the passion people have for this product. This is seen in the care and the perseverance that the Favrel family have infused for over three generations in vine growing, producing first-class wines. The family’s passion can be seen through the way the vineyards are looked after, mainly worked by hand and kept as if they were gardens. The Favrel family have owned the winery for more than 50 years. Grandfather Gregorio (from here the short form “Gorio” after which the Extra-Dry sparkling wine has been named) founded it originally in Col San Martino, for then moving in the early 50s to the gentle slopes of Susegana where he could obtain full bodied and aromatically more complexed wines thanks to the clayey soil.
On 18th September 2004 a new winery was built; a gem of rare beauty with regards to the architecture of the surrounding hills. It is equipped with appropriate wine-making machinery which respects and protects the final product of the grape vines. Today the Azienda Agricola involves Girolamo, the owner who took over the management in the 1970s after returning from Australia where he had worked for several years. His daughter Marica, wife Norina are now all part of the winery, while Maurizio, is the mastermind behind it all, vineyards, cellar and soppressa making.
