Our history starts from far away, our ancient vineyards starts with the Minucci family dating back to the end of the twelfth century. The ancient and noble Minucci family owned the lands of Vallonto where the current vineyards of Benedetta Verga Falzacappa find place.
It is said that Archbishop Minuccio Minucci who had his residence in Serravalle, today Vittorio Veneto, with possessions in Vallonto, has brought his renowned wines to the Council of Trento.
In 1849 the last descendent of the Minucci family sold the possessions in Vallonto to the wealthy merchant Giuseppe De Carlo of Calalzo.
The last descendant of De Carlo, Camilla, married to Antonio Verga Falzacappa, has continued the tradition of making a good wine obtaining high quality awards, up to the 80s.
My mother, Camilla De Carlo, an intelligent and sensitive woman, continued the family tradition, bringing out the past and the present in wine.
The journalist and wine expert Veronelli established with Camilla de Carlo a sense of friendship and esteem, citing his wines among the thousand best wines in the world and including them in the 1968 Bolaffi catalogs of Italy and the world.
Verga Falzacappa wines are again mentioned by Veronelli in the 1972 and 1973 editions of the Bolaffi catalog of Italian wines and again in the 1979 edition of the Bolaffi catalog of Italian white wines.
Among the many friends of my mother, the writer Giovanni Comisso, enthusiastic about his wine, wrote: “Camilla your wine is gold in the Bank of England”.
