The Cantina Colli Euganei Association was founded in 1949 by a group of wine growers who joined in order to work their grapes together, to promote their wines and to sell them under one single trademark. The production and bottling plant is located at about 30 Km from Padua and at 60 Km from Venice. The plant in Vò is situated inside the Euganean Hills Regional Natural Park, which covers an area of about 340 Kmq and has a perimeter of ca. 65 Km.

Its fame is due to the waters that spring from the underground and that, mixing with clay and organic slime, give origin to the well-known healing mud baths.

It is in this territory, so particularly suitable for vine growing, that in 1969 the Denomination of Controlled Origin (D.O.C.) "Colli Euganei" was established. Its first purpose was to safeguard the cultivation of vineyards that had always been present on these hill slopes.

The colour is straw yellow, sometimes with greenish reflections; the perlage is fine and constant. The aroma is crisp, fruity, with flowery hints. The flavour is soft, lively, but not aggressive. It is an excellent aperitif or it can accompany any dish without sauces.
