Pasqua Vigneti e Cantine is a historic company producing quality Veneto and Italian wines and a leader in the Italian and international markets. A family passion. Almost a century of history.
Founded in 1925 in Verona and born of the love of Famiglia Pasqua for Valpolicella, it tells a story of wine, vineyards, and deep roots in the territory
Three generations have always been united by a great passion for viticulture and the production of fine wines, first in Valpolicella and then also on the east coast of Lake Garda and in the most prestigious hills of the Soave denomination.
If the winery places enormous strategic value to Italy, the drive towards foreign markets, culminating in the foundation of Pasqua USA and Pasqua China, has led the company to be present today in 65 markets.
Umberto Pasqua leads the company with his sons Riccardo and Alessandro.
Glera, also known as Prosecco, is a white variety of grape of Slovenian origin, which was brought to the village of Prosecco (Slovene: Prosek) from the Karst region. The variety was formerly mostly referred to as Prosecco, but in the EU was renamed "Glera" in 2009 to make room for the protection of "Prosecco" as the name of a geographically-protected wine.[Glera is a rather neutral grape variety that is mainly cultivated for use in sparkling Italian wine styles, frizzante or spumante, from the various Prosecco DOCG and DOC areas, although still wines also exist. It is grown mainly in the Veneto region of Italy, traditionally in an area near Conegliano and Valdobbiadene, in the hills north of Treviso.
Veneto - the most famous of the 3 major producing regions in northeastern Italy
Veneto is a substantial and increasingly important wine region in the northeastern corner of Italy. Administratively it forms part of the Triveneto zone, along with its smaller neighbors Trentino-Alto Adige and Friuli-Venezia Giulia. In terms of geography, culture, and wine styles, it represents a transition between the alpine, Germano-Slavic end of Italy and the warmer, drier, more Roman lands to the south.
Veneto is slightly smaller than Italy's other main wine-producing regions – Piedmont, Tuscany, Lombardy, Puglia, and Sicily – yet it generates more wine than any of them. Although the southern regions Sicily and Puglia were for a long time Italy's main wine producers, this balance began to shift north towards Veneto in the latter half of the 20th Century. In the 1990s, southern Italian wine languished in an increasingly competitive and demanding world, while Veneto upped its game, gaining recognition with such wines as Valpolicella, Amarone, Soave, and Prosecco.
With fruity red Valpolicella complementing its intense Amarone and sweet Recioto counterparts, Veneto is armed with a formidable portfolio of red wines to go with its refreshing whites, such as Soave and sparkling Prosecco. Although much of the new vineyard area that supported Veneto's increased wine output was of questionable viticultural quality, today more than 25 percent of the region's wine is made and sold under DOC/DOCG titles.
