Daniele Venica purchased the plot Ronco del Ceró where he first planted Sauvignon in 1930. Three generations later, great grandson Giampaolo has taken over the estate, a true testimony to the tradition of keeping winemaking in the family. Venica now has 40 hectares all within the DOC—Denomination of Controlled Origin—of Collio. Sons Gianni (agronomist), Giorgio (cellar master), and grandson Giampaolo oversee operations supplemented by help from several family members. They believe their traditions must be enhanced through continuous research and innovation, but a relationship with nature is of utmost importance.
“Cerò” is the name of the village where Daniele Venica of the first generation purchased the family’s country house in the hills of Collio. “Ronca del Cero” represents the family’s origins which has carried over through four generations. This sees a modest amount of skin contact for 18-20 hours. A small part of the juice ages on the lees in small barrels while the rest of the wine is aged in stainless steel. This wine over delivers as a food pairing, making an excellent companion to ham, as well as asparagus, and vegetable creams.
