Patrizia Cadore wines offer an authentic taste of Italian life. Born of the rich soils of northern Italy, grapes are nurtured and transformed into nine different blends and varietals. The Patrizia Cadore winery remains active in its community and is well known across the region, and around the world.
Patrizia Cadore’s History
The Cadore family has produced wine on their property in Vincenza, Italy, since the 19th century. Their original Torcolato wine, made with vespaiola grapes, gained popularity and was exported to the United States in the 1950s, allowing the family to expand its vineyards to Lugana. The winery has remained family-owned throughout the years, and intends to remain that way. Patrizia Cadore produces 70,000 bottles of wine each year.
Patrizia Cadore’s Mission
In Italian culture, family always comes first. Patrizia Cadore upholds this tradition by constantly bringing the next generation into their winemaking business. The newest Cadore to be brought into the winery is Giada, who joined in 2016 and is being primed to continue the legacy when her time comes.
