The history of the Cavaliere family is an ancient tale of grain, wine and oil merchants who moved to Veneto from Puglia at the end of the 1800s. Damiano Cavaliere settled in Asolo, where he took up grape growing and produced wine. Dating back to 1892, the Antica Osteria Al Bacaro stands in the heart of the historic town centre. Here Damiano, the founder, began serving wine from behind a simple bare counter, offering labourers, farmers, blacksmiths and artisans refreshment and rest. Embraced by the two ancient paths leading to the “city of a hundred horizons” are the vineyards planted by Damiano Cavaliere, who observed their growth day by day. The estate passed on to his son Pietro and then to his grandson Damiano Cavaliere, who continued to take care of them with the same passion and attention transmitted by his grandfather.
Close to the vineyards stands the beautiful ancient winery, which Pia Lorenzato with Antonio and Lorenzo, wife and nephews of Damiano Cavaliere, now wish to revitalize with a long-term plan for renewed production by requalifying and enhancing both the vineyards and the winery along the lines of territorial traditions.
