The charming town of Susegana, near Conegliano, is located between a vast plain criss-crossed by the waters of the Piave, and the foothills of the Alps; it is overlooked by the evocative Castello di San Salvatore which to this day is owned by the Collalto family, who also own the surrounding land.
In the nineteen thirties the Dal Vera family bought a number of holdings from the Collaltos in the north-east area of the town, providing homes and jobs for eight families: from the very moment that our ancestors set foot on this hill, they began raising cattle, and planted the first few rows of vines.
In time the Boscaratto family bought the property, dedicating themselves to looking after the land and vineyards, and preserving the natural symbiotic relationship between man and nature, in which the hard, ongoing manual work of the winemaker favors and shapes the landscape, thus continuing a centuries-old tradition.

The positioning of the hill between the sea and the Pre Alps provides a breezy, temperate climate able to dry the grapes quickly after showers and that helps to protect them from fungal diseases. The broad temperature range especially that of the grape ripening process, gives finesse to the aromas; each vintage having their own characteristics that are found in the pleasant array of bouquets of Boscaratto wines.
The soil of Conegliano has ancient origins, its hills were shaped by the glaciers of the Dolomites and it is for this reason that the hazel coloured terrain is made up of conglomerates of rock and sand and large amounts of clay. The vines grow slowly: reaching down, over a period of years, to depths of several meters in order to reach their required nutrients. Among others, these are the characteristics that contribute to the olfactory intensity of our wine and its broad, persistent and fruity flavours.
