ABOUT US


The Abbot Felice Benedetti and the doctor Antonio Carpenè are credited with the setting up, in 1868, of the Trevigiana Enological Society, followed in 1876 by the establishment in Conegliano of the school of viticulture and enology, an institute founded by Antonio Carpenè and by Giovanni Battista Cerletti. Names of great prestige that tell the story of a school of a university inclination: it boasted several teachers of international fame such as Arturo Marescalchi, Giovanni Dalmasso, founder of the Vine and Wine Academy, Prof. Luigi Manzoni, who for many years held the position of dean of the school and creator of those hybrids that are so much a part of the "Colle di Conegliano" name. In this seat technological research has always assumed a key role but in 1923 the need to broaden and deepen this area led to the establishment of an Experimental Centre of Viticulture and Enology which plays a fundamental role in the study and evolution of provincial and national viticulture and enology. Thanks to the work of modernisation initiated by the first director Prof Dalmasso, the Treviso and Veneto viticulture underwent a relaunch which continues under the guidance of its successors, including the scientists Italo Cosmo, Severina Cancellier, Diego Tomasi and Tullio De Rosa.

The Experimental Centre of Viticulture and Enology is today an Experimental Institute for viticulture, a research institution equivalent to university institutions, whose direction was also overseen by Professor Antonio Calò, president of the of the Vine and Wine Academy, to whom are also credited the many years of work and research that led in 1993 to recognition of the Colli di Conegliano DOC. Denomination of Controlled Origin.

The commitment of the Consortium and especially of the producers has now been recognised, with Ministerial Decree of 14 September 2011, with the Denomination of Controlled and Guaranteed Origin. A DOCG which confirms the high potential of our Trevisian hills.
