Mazzolada


La Cantina del Falco



The strength of the Mazzolada estate are the passion and dedication of the people working there, combined with the culture and the ancient tradition that this land possesses for producing fine wines.



The Estate



The Mazzolada estate extends over 126 hectares, of which 91 hectares are cultivated with vineyards and all of them are situated in the area with the “denomination of controlled origin” so called DOC wines.



All the vineyards on the estate have been planted recently, with a vine density ranging from 3,000 to 4,500 plants per hectare. There is only one hectare left of the year 1963, which has been preserved for its unique features.




The Permises




The offices, laboratories and the cellar are all located at the headquarters of the company, which takes its name from the location Mazzolada, which is part of the city of Portogruaro. The estate is open daily for visits.



You can organize wine tastings, especially in the beautiful “Casone” (a typical straw construction house of the Adriatic coast) built on a little island of the artificial lake within the estate.
Visits to the winery and the vineyards must be booked in advance.



The History



The growing of the grapevine on this land between the Alps and the Adriatic Sea, has been existing as early as 300 BC during the Roman Empire’s rule over the Mediterranean area. As a proof of this, there are Roman documents dating back to 131 BC describing the cultivation of the grapevine in the area of Julia Concordia (now called “Concordia Sagittaria” which includes our estate) for the production of high quality wines.



The Genovese family, who bought the prestigious Mazzolada wine estate in 1985, inherits this tradition and ancient culture, which are witnessed by the coveted awards received in many oenological contests.


The Wine Cellar



At the winery the meticulous care of the vineyard precedes the careful and modern processing of the grapes.



In deed, Mazzolada’s use of the newest techniques and state of the art equipment, such as the soft squeezing, the controlled temperature during the wine-making and the wine aging in French barrique barrels, guarantee the best conditions for producing high quality wines.



The generosity of the vines combined with the modern equipment assures Mazzolada a production capacity of nearly 1,000,000 bottles per year.


The Vines



Within the estate you can find the following grapes: Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso, Merlot, Raboso, Malbech, Pinot Grigio, Pinot Blanc, Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Riesling Italico, Classical Lison (former classical Tocai), Verduzzo and aromatic Malvasia.



A majestic ash tree can be found at the estate, which is more than four centuries old and considered as a historical symbol of the territory, after which the wine Merlot “Vigna del Frassino” (“Vineyard of the ash tree”) is named.




We also found a hawk couple, "Falco" in Italian, in the emblem of Mazzolada, from which the Cabernet Sauvignon Vigna del Falco gets its name.



The Harvest



The company has developed its own specific projects for all the phases of processing of the grapes, from mechanical harvesting at night to the different stages of the soft squeezing, decantation and fermentation.



The constant attention to new forms of harvesting and production, which grant the compatibility with eco-farming, makes the quality of the wines a distinct element of the Mazzolada estate.
