the story of a single wine in the world.

the story of venissa starts accidentally

While accompanying several customers on a trip to Torcello, I noticed an old grapevine in a private house beside the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta. I managed to persuade the owner to send me some of the grapes when they had matured.

The grapes arrived full of lovely thick – skinned grapes with a brilliant golden color. It was the famous Dorona, also known as the “golden grape,” favored by the Venetians and served during the banquets of the Doges and then lost to history. – Gianluca Bisol

support the lagoon

We decided to donate 10% of the proceeds for supporting the farmers and fishermen who have been damaged during the high tide.

The Dorona grape was almost disappeared as a result of 1966’s high tide, thanks your help we are committed so that no other farming tradition can be lost in the future

2015 - the great vintage

Universally considered one of the greatest vintage ever, the 2015 edition of Venissa Wine is no exception and it simply astonishes. 
 
An optimal climate season has given life to a wine with great elegance, which is perfectly combined with the strong personality of the venetian’s lagoon terroir as everything that is grown on the islands of the lagoon.

a white for collection

The wine is golden and immediately vibrant into the glass with iodine notes, as well as white and yellow fruit like apple, citron and bergamot.
 
On the palate it is well structured with a nice acidity enhancing verticality of a wine in itself complex. During the sip a never ending succession of quince, almond, and yellow fruit notes.The finale is dry, full and persistent thanks to the great minerality.
 
Venissa is a white wine for collection with a great aging potential.
