Le Colture

Le Colture winery has been producing wines on the hills of the small village of Santo Stefano di Valdobbiadene since the 1500s, under the guidance of the same family.

In 1983, Cesare Ruggeri launched its entry into the field of sparkling wines, and today it boasts an extraordinary heritage of expertise–know-how spread over a vast array of its own production secrets, both great and small; a deep understanding of its entire growing area and its vineyards; and an inborn sensitivity to the health and well-being of each vineyard.

For some years now, Cesare’s three children, Silvia, Alberto, and Veronica, have been intensely involved in winery activities, bringing to its operation a surge of enthusiasm and the invaluable innovative spirit characteristic of the young generations, without however forgetting love for their own land and respect for winemaking traditions.

Although from the outside, the winery complex looks like the traditional local farmstead, with its attached wine cellar, the interior is marked by modernity, boasting the most technologically advanced equipment.

The estate vineyards, totalling a full 40 hectares, are not a common feature of the denomination but are a distinctive feature of this operation. They do not all lie near the winery but are distributed among 16 farm properties in the Valdobbiadene and Conegliano areas and in that of Montello.

This makes it possible to create wines with ultra-distinct personalities that reflect the specific characteristics innate in the soils and weather conditions of very uncommon terroirs.

Le Colture sparkling wines are made solely with the Glera grape, grown almost exclusively in the family vineyards lying in the Valdobbiadene DOCG and harvested only by hand.The winery offers some activities:
