Nino Franco Grave di Stecca Brut Sparkling

A very pleasant dry taste at the beginning, followed by a growing silky fruit bouquet. The grapes are sourced exclusively from ancient origin vineyard, named “Grave di Stecca,” a clos on the slopes of the Prealpi, just near the town center. The vineyard, exposed to the south and partly screened by a huge park, enjoys a particular micro-climate.

Nino Franco was founded in 1919 by Antonio Franco in Valdobbiadene. The winery is located at the foot of the Prealps, in the Venetian region and proud to be one of the oldest wineries in Valdobbiadene. Known for their Prosecco vine, the estate has been growing and evolving throughout four generations of producers. Antonio founded it, Nino expanded it, Primo improved international distribution and today, Silvia Franco is the future of the brand.
