Antonio Franco founded the “Cantine Franco” winery in Valdobbiadene in 1919.

is located at the foot of the Prealps, in the Venetian region, and is
famous for the Prosecco vine and wine production. This winery is proud
to be one of the oldest in Valdobbiadene, located in the town centre,
not far away from the countryside and the vineyards.

1919年,Antonio Franco在瓦尔多比亚德内创建了弗朗克庄园。是当地最古老,也是最具盛名的酒庄之一。瓦尔多比亚德内坐落于阿尔卑斯山脚下,是著名的Prosecco酿造圣地。

evolving throughout three generations of producers. Antonio founded it,
Nino expanded it and Primo improved the company performance throughout

Franco was one of the first pioneers to export the Prosecco and to
introduce a different sparkling wine than Champagne into the
international market. He has been successful, thanks to his open mind
personality, his spontaneity, reliability and competence as well as his
charm and ability to communicate his love for his job, and last but not
least thanks to his high quality and delicious wines.

Primo Franco是第一位将完全不同于香槟的起泡酒推向国际市场的先驱人物,并且他成功的做到了。这归功于他的独到见解与开放态度,还有传递他对这份事业所持热情的个人魅力,当然前提是尼诺弗朗克绝对的高品质。

“Thirty years ago, Primo wasn’t alone in his quest to make Prosecco a
popular wine in English-speaking countries. But he was one of a small
group of bottlers who packed their bags and headed across the ocean to
teach Anglophones about Prosecco’s wonderful freshness,
food-friendliness, and versatility at the dinner table.”

“三十多年前,Primo Franco并不是唯一渴望将Prosecco领入英语国家的人,但他是唯一真正将之付诸行动的传奇人物。”
