Anyone who has visited the magical city of Venice has most certainly encountered the famous wine of Prosecco.The legendary estate of Nino Franco, located in the celebrated region of Valdobbiadene, has been producing Prosecco wines for more than three generationsPrimo Franco, grandson of the original founder, Nino, professionally and lovingly moved this estate into the twenty first century, setting the example to other producers.Unquestionably one of the top producers of Prosecco today, the quality of the man is to be found in his wine.
Antonio Franco founded the “Cantine Franco” winery in Valdobbiadene in 1919.
