“Riva dei frati” Our Story Back
The company, “Riva dei Frati” derives from a piece of land situated in the area of Col San Martino, once cultivated by Dominican friars. Documents, conserved in the archives of Treviso, show that this land belonged to Treviso’s San Nicolò Dominican friars in the 15th century and back then, they were already producing prestigious wines.The Adami family has a long tradition in the wine business. Cesare and Marisa (Adami) entered the wine producing business, in 1993, focussing their energy, passion and hard work to find ways of improving their Prosecco wine.Today, Adami aims to offer quality prestigious wines.To facilitate this, we have expanded our wine-growing regions in Cornuda, a small town near Valdobbiadene, the Region of the Prosecco dei Colli Asolani, located in Cornuda, allowing our customers a wider choice of Prosecco wines.Riva dei Frati now owns 25 hectares of land in the areas of Col San Martino, Cornuda, Guia and Valdobbiadene, the land of Prosecco Cartizze Superiore DOCG.The Prosecco area of production stretches across 15 municipalities of hilly terrain. The typical inclination of the hills limits and makes the use of machines practically impossible.
For this reason, the cultivation of the vines is normally carried out by family-owned wineries that use natural materials, like wooden poles, to conserve the landscape.The harvest is carried out by hand allowing gently handling of the grapes that are then transported to the wine cellar for maceration.Modern technology ensures that the final Prosecco wine is at its very best. The entire production cycle is carried out in the winery. Cesare and Marisa have combined traditional and modern techniques resulting in Prosecco wines that have fine characteristics that delight the most discerning palate.
