As Leondino Ferasin, owner of ‘Società Agricola Caferro’, narrates, with his eyes full of memories, it is necessary to go back to the end of 1800 to know the origin of this winery, when his grandfather, Sebastiano, from north of Vicenza moved to Vo’, buying a few acres of land on the slopes of the Euganean Hills where he planted the first vines to produce wine for his family. But it is in the 50s that Caferro was founded, when his father Vittorio purchased part of ‘Villa Lando Mantovani’. Leondino, as many boys of his age, once finished the primary school, began to help the family in the fields, his father needed manpower, he was the only son.
The first wines such as White Muscat and Euganean Hills red wine began to be appreciated by the clients of the taverns, bars and private citizens of the surrounding area, encouraging Ferasin family to plant new vines and give much value to the historical vineyards, until today with a wider range of wines that Leondino’s sons, graduated at the Oenological school of Conegliano, continue to study, improve, select with the passion typical of those who made the wine a philosophy of life. When Leondino speaks about his vineyards, his face is rich of emotions; even now, after years of hard work, he is fascinated by the changes of his vines as seasons alternate. He talks about his vines as if they were human beings, the old ones should be treated with respect and admiration for all the grapes they have offered till now and the new ones should be grown with loving care, like a newborn child, to make them vigorous and fruitful.
