Setten winery is located in the small province of Basalghelle di Mansuè on the Venetian plain a few kilometers from Venice and the Dolomites mountains. A perfect geographical position to grow wines which have been present here in this land since 1200.
The Setten Estate coat-of-arms represents the values of the Setten family and the essence of the product: the SUN, Life source, is the symbol of continuity and the LION of the Venice Republic is the symbol of origins and time past. Setten comes from the nickname “Setin”, a surname attributed to a Venetian merchant of precious oriental silks.
In the middle of the 1700s a part of the Setten family settled in Mansuè dedicating itself to viticulture in Cornarè and Basalghelle area. From that moment the following generations have always cultivated this land.
Davide Alcide Setten inherited the passion for the viticulture from his paternal grandfather and in 1960 began to increase the family’s land holdings where he planted new vineyards. In the 70s’ he bought in Basalghelle from the Parpinelli family, the eighteen-century -Villa with annexes and “terroir”.
The manor house was immediately restored. In the following years all the nearby plots were subject to a wise redevelopment resulting a fabulous portfolio of real estate. Today it is the heart of the winery’s agricultural activities. The 250 hectares of annexed land are planted with vines and located in Mansuè, Oderzo and Gorgo al Monticano, in the province of Treviso (Veneto region). The harvested grapes are used for the production of high quality wines with the “Tenuta Setten” and “Villa Aganoor” brands. 140 hectares are cultivated with arable land, used for the service of a biogas plant.
In 2005 CA’ RONESCA was been purchased. A winery with 100 hectares located in Dolegna del COLLIO and Ipplis, in the eastern side of Friuli Venezia Giulia close to Slovenia border where the “vini del Collio” and “colli orientali” are produced under the brand-name Ca’ Ronesca. These wines are appreciated all over the world.
Other 90 hectares were purchased in the province of Grosseto, in the Tuscan Maremma, under development for the establishment of new plants for native vines.
