The Azienda Zenato has always forged strong links with local history and culture, both that of centuries past and that still forming today, and links just as deep with the land that gives us the wines we produce. Equally important to us is a passionate dedication to vigorous research and innovation, to relentless quality improvement. All of this has made Azienda Zenato an ambassador for quality, for dedication, for a frank and simple way of life.

For all these reasons, we believe that we are ideally suited to completely satisfy every wine-lover looking for an affordable wine of superb distinctiveness and exceptional quality.
