Carpenè Malvolti | Valdobbiadene

The vineyards of Carpenè Malvolti in the hills of Conegliano, Italy

Carpenè Malvolti is Italy's oldest family-owned Prosecco producer and a leading light in Italian sparkling wine production. It was founded in 1868 by Antonio Carpenè, a qualified chemist, in contact with Pasteur and Koch, who was convinced that a wine as good as Champagne could be produced in Italy. He applied his knowledge to the Prosecco grape (now known as Glera) and produced the first sparkling wine made from this grape variety and in the process created an incomparable wine with its own unique perfume, taste and style. Now with 150 years of history, this is a testament to Carpenè Malvolti's dedication to quality.
