||The Podere Le Ronche in Fossalta di Piave is located in Veneto, east of Treviso and northeast of Venice. The name Le Ronche represents an area of the village of Fossalta di Piave and derives from the local verb "roncare", which means breaking down the woodland and cultivating it. In fact, once these lands were covered with forests and vine was the crop that has spread in this area, thanks to the excellent qualitative results of the grapes produced. Here is the center for winemaking, aging and marketing of the company. It is located within the production area of wines with a designation of origin "Piave". Piave is a river that runs through much of the East Veneto and over the millennia, releasing its sediments, has contributed to the origin of this land, particularly valuable for the cultivation of vine. Le Ronche farm is located about 40 km from the mountains, 10 km from the sea and a few hundred meters away from the River Piave. This special location allows you to create windy details of wind, wide thermal daytime and nighttime excursions, and a microclimate ideal for obtaining wines with a very high organoleptic thickness. Soils are clayey, ideal for optimum vegeto-productive equilibrium in vines and for obtaining important and complex wines. In the sixties the De Stefani family identified those lands that could give the best quality results for obtaining wines with a particular personality and planted the traditional vineyards of this area.
