Fruit is sourced from a stable of Cesari’s long-term family of growers from the finest hillside vineyards in the northern regions of Veneto, Friuli-Venezia Giulia, and Trentino-Alto Adige. The Cesari family works closely with these growers throughout the year to ensure the cultivation of the highest quality fruit.
