Since 1769 when Giovanni Follador received the Wine Quality Award from the Doge of Venice, Alvise IVº Mocenigo, the Follador family has humbly followed their passion, setting the standard for Italian wines made with great care and devotion. Gianfranco Follador, Giovanni's descendant, has been responsible for the winery's change in direction toward sparkling wines.
In 1970, Gianfranco Follador founded Follador Spumanti, one of the first producers of sparkling wines in the area of Valdobbiadene. With the heritage of his ancestors in mind, and the best of modern technology, Gianfranco has developed the traditional art of winemaking into a more genuine, effective and productive art form. He was driven by a passion for the land he was born on and its superior wine making heritage. Gianfranco's commitment and methods have resulted in exceptional wines of quality and drinkability.
The Folladors are a family passionate about their wine-making heritage. Neither stuck in the past nor daunted by modernity, they've quietly gone about marrying traditional vineyard cultivation with the latest production techniques to create wines that are highly respected among their peers. Follador's Superior Line of wines include 4 DOCGs in the Torri di Credazzo' Cuvée, Cartizze, Brut and Extra-Dry categories.
