Beginning in 1899, at the Padua estate, Piera’s story has been passed down through the family from generation to generation, from father to daughter.
Founded by her grandfather Giovanni, developed by her father Mario, Piera 1899 owes its reputation both in Italy and abroad to Piera Martellozzo who has given her name and, for over twenty-five years, her leadership to it with determination and gentleness.
The recognised quality of Piera 1899 wines is the result of everyday hard work founded on respect for the land and its traditions, nurtured by an innate propensity for innovation. It is a commitment which takes the form of maximum process and wine making choice sustainability aimed at minimum environmental impact.
San Quirino in Pordenone province, in the north east of Italy, Piera 1899 chose Friuli Grave as its homeland. Here the mountains to the north shelter the soil from the coldest winds. The Adriatic sea to the south, on the other hand, mitigates the temperatures contributing to the creation of a microclimate which is especially well-suited to vineyards.
Over time Piera 1899 has widened its horizons whilst never losing sight of quality and consolidating its oenological roots in the north east of Italy of which it is a natural expression nurtured by a centuries’ long legacy of culture, art and history.
Defined by an approach founded on expertise and high quality standards, Piera 1899 wines grow from a desire to bring a regional identity to international markets.
Embracing tradition whilst looking to the future, Piera 1899 has always worked to a single objective:
obtaining the best quality wines, which are a pleasure to drink, go well with a range of foods and can compete with the greatest wine traditions in the world.
