Canevel Spumanti was set up in 1979 as a result of the meeting of two different professional skills and one real passion.
From the start, when Mario Caramel, a producer of vinegar and a wine merchant from Oderzo, and the wine-making expert Roberto De Lucchi founded the wine-making company in a small workshop below the church of Santo Stefano di Valdobbiadene, the mission was clear: to produce a sparkling wine of excellence that would exploit the qualities of the Glera grape.
“Canevel” in the local dialect means “small cellar”. This is what the new company was intended to be: the best place to safeguard secrets and traditions, where it would develop with our passion for excellence. Since then, wine has remained a project for us, not a matter of chance. It is the result of passion refined over time, with enthusiasm and skill. The culture of wine, technical skill and the continuos quest for quality are inseparable parts of our history and of our sparkling wines.
Having completely covered Italy and consolidated itself in Germany, Switzerland and the United States, Canevel then reached Austria, Holland, Great Britain, Ireland, Canada, South Africa, Panama, Belgium.
As well as Valdobbiadene Sparkling Wines DOCG Charmat in the five varieties of Brut, Extra Dry, Extra Dry “Il Millesimato” and Cartizze, Canevel has included in its repertoire , a line of cru wines that come from our own vineyards (Valdobbiadene Frizzante DOCG Vigneto San Biagio refermented in bottle, Valdobbiadene Spumante DOCG Vigneto del Faè) and a line called Canevel La Vi (Prosecco Quality Aromatic Sparkling Wine, Sparkling Prosecco from the Colli Trevigiani IGT and La Vi in Rosa Vsq sparkling wine).
Bottles of wine produced by us have exceeded 800.000 in number and we now turn 8,000 quintals of grapes into wine. The company, having changed its headquarters three times and produced 15 million bottles of wine, is now heading towards its thirtieth birthday. However, these figures and our successes are the logical result of the zeal with which the people who are part of the operation continue to dedicate themselves to their work year after year, just as they did at the start.
Carlo Carmelo will remain as a shareholder, to represent the founding family, bearer of the values at the base of the brand Canevel.
This is where Canevel Spumanti comes into being – at the heart of the company, a modern winery, with machinery and avant-garde facilities and expertise that enable us to continue our tradition of quest for ever increasing excellence in the production of the Spumante Valdobbiadene and Conegliano.
The new headquarters of Canevel Sparkling Wines is in Valdobbiadene in the hamlet of Saccol, in a completely restored building, equipped to meet all functional requirements, from the grape harvest to vinification, from bottling to storing the products and to delivery to clients, wine mechants and restaurants.
The process is controlled at every phase, in order to guarantee that our sparkling wines are of the best quality.
