“With Grave di Stecca,” writes American wine writer Ed McCarthy for Glass of Bubbly, “Nino Franco reaches the quality level of a fine Champagne.”

“Nino Franco, one of the older Prosecco wineries, was founded in 1919 by Antonio Franco, grandfather of the current owner. It is located in the central part of the town of Valdobbiadene, a town large enough to have five hotels. Antonio’s son, Nino Franco, established the winery as one of the prime Prosecco producers. When Nino Franco’s son, Primo Franco, took over in 1982, quality rose to new heights. Primo Franco, an urbane man and great conversationalist, has traveled the world, visiting wine regions. He developed a special affinity for Champagne, an unusual passion for typically provincial Italian wine producers.”
