In 1974 Guido Fidora, decided to convert the family estate into organic agriculture.
At that time being organic was not a fashion and the word “organic” itself was not even associated to agriculture as it is today. Chemicals had been promoted as the right innovative way to grow crops for about one century. Everybody just seemed to have forgotten all their past, thousand-year chemicals-free experience. There were no books, no researches, no teachers to tell you how to grow plants without using chemicals. We learned through experience.
Today, Civranetta estate is one of the oldest examples of an organic-cultivated environment in our coutry and the oldest one in the Veneto region. The flourishing plants and the numerous animal species are witnesses of how a different agricultural method can improve our life conditions and change the world as we know it.
In our opinion, wine is made to be enjoyed and to convey emotions.
We want all of our wines to taste excellent, to be the best companions to a special occasion or to make a normal occasion special. Organic wines are healthier than those made from conventionally grown grapes. They are made with more care, following practices that protect both the environment and the people who work in the production process. Our wines reflect the unique features of grape varieties, local geology and climate, in a word, our terroir.
