In the vineyard since 1920
the stories of the first grapes grown by the abate family date back to a century ago. In the decades following the 1960s, Angelo Abate and Adriano Valbusa continued the work of growing the vine, starting a small winemaking business.
Sergio, Angelo’s son, followed his father’s footsteps and over the years he refined the technique of growing vines.
So he decided first to plant a vineyard in the Tiracollo area followed by another one in Centenaro in the Fenil boi/Ca’Nova area.
But only with the arrival of the two sons Stefano e Marco, supporting the agricultural activity, it was decided to resume bottling of our grapes, which were previously sold to third parties.
Here originates Abatewine, a project that tells about the love and respect for nature which we live already for generations.
A label that tell a story
tactile and visual emotions translated with signs and spaces that develop on four different levels of high and low relief.
The levels represent the members of the Abate family: Sergio, the strong and earthbound father, the two brilliant and outgoing brothers and Athena, the granddaughter, represented by the smallest letter. There are also four typefaces that make up the label. Completely different from each other, they symbolize the elements that distinguish the Abate vineyards: the earth, rich in nutrients and mineral salts, the stones that surround the entrance and the boundaries of the estate, the vineyards and, of course, the grapes. To make the label even more interesting is the printable natural pigment, obtained – after months of research – from the dehydration of Lugana
Lugana Abate is not just a wine, but a multi-sensory experience that begins even before the bottle is uncorked.
Accept what life offers you and try to drink from every glass. All wines should be tasted; some should only be sipped, but with others, the entire bottle should be drunk Paulo Coelho, Brida
