Moletto wines are the fruit of our labours: of our eyes, smell and attentive palates ... in other words are the fruit of our passion and professionalism.
ABOUT MOLETTO - ITALIAN WINERY
You are always welcome at Moletto Winery, a place of tradition and history, where wine is culture and friendship.
At the eastern edge of the province of Treviso, Veneto Region – Italy,
It was thanks to the particular and fortuitous composition of the soils – rich in clayey and chalky ingredients – but also to the foresight and unflagging determination of the man who endeavoured to tap its winemaking potential, with the aid of the most modern enological technologies – but without detriment to traditional methods – that this transformation actually occurred.
The Moletto Winery was founded in 1960 by Mario Stival, initially assisted by his wife, and then, from the eighties on, also by his children who dedicate their efforts to the company’s production, sales and marketing sectors.
A friendly team, which only a family can be, driven by enthusiasm and entrepreneurship, while remaining faithful at all times to its roots.
These roots are embedded in the land and require dedication as well as care, passion and hard work.
These roots are what we call “wine culture”, by which we mean they are a gift from the land to those who love, cherish and respect it.
The Moletto holdings are located within the provinces of Treviso and Venice, areas of millennia-old tradition of winemaking and respectively in the Treviso Prosecco DOC, Piave DOC, Lison-Pramaggiore DOC and Venezia DOC production areas.
MOTTA DI LIVENZA
THE HOLDINGS IN MOTTA DI LIVENZA
The estate in Motta di Livenza occupies an excellent position where the verdant Moletto Forest once stood on the banks of the Livenza River.
The soil is primarily clayey-calcareous with only a slight layer of humus as a “reminder” of the forest‘s presence. Some sections also have a sandy component due to the vicinity of the Livenza River.
These variations in the land can be clearly seen from the air, where noticeably lighter portions of the terrain overlap darker areas.
Studying and analyzing the nature of the soil has guided us in choosing the best areas in which to cultivate each type of grape.
Another positive feature is the presence of groundwater at a depth of two meters that allows the vines to receive water even in particularly dry seasons.
The land in Motta di Livenza is 9 meters above sea level and boasts a very advantageous geographical position with the sea (Adriatic Sea) to the southeast and mountains (Prealps and Dolomites) to the north.
It has its own microclimate that is characterized by wide temperature fluctuations, especially in the summer.
It is an area that benefits from the dry wind of the Bora from the east-northeast and cold Alpine climate.
THE HOLDINGS IN BELFIORE
The soil in the Belfiore holdings are clayey-calcareous and very tenacious with significant amounts of caranto.
Because of the soil, grape production is limited to those for wines that are particularly full-bodied and well-structured.
And, despite the fact that the soil is especially heavy, at an altitude of 7 meters above sea level, the competition between the roots of the vines and the colloids in the soil reaches maximum levels in especially dry periods.
The Adriatic Sea is close by with its mild and very breezy climate, combined with the dry winds of the Bora from the east-northeast.
“We are committed to bringing out the best this territory has to offer through the preservation of its natural environment and all the traditional warmth of its past and through our fervent, on-going dedication to the creation of high-quality products following in the footsteps of the centuries’-old mission and legacy of this land.”
