THE WINERY
The winery sits in the heart of the province of Treviso, on the left bank of the Piave as it cuts across the plain in an area tightly bound to the history of this great river. With painstaking management of the production cycle and careful application of modern technologies the Cantina has won numerous prizes and awards from wine events including The International Wine Award at Vinitaly in Verona (Italy), the National Selection of Wines for Fish in Ancona (Italy) and a regional award from Enoconegliano. The company has also achieved ISO 9001-2000 certification. In 1969 eleven founders came together to create the Cooperativa Agricola La Salute. It was its President Davide Drusian who baptised the winery, taking the name from a small village in nearby Ponte di Piave which was dedicated to the Salute di Venezia in the 16th century. From the beginning the winery was housed in the Case Bressan where the first wines were made by the courageous pioneers Sante Bressan, Davide Drusian, Guido Marcassa, Samuele Zanchetta and Livio Buso.
