Vegan and Organic Winery Since 1987

Surrounded by centuries-old lemon groves and wisteria, Antiche Cantine Giol is positioned in San Polo, a few miles away from Venice, Northern Italy. It has an old, double-storey cellar, framed by ancient walls, with masonry and façade on one end and windows with a charming view of the territory on the other.

The Origins of Antiche Cantine Giol Dates Back to 1427

In 1427, following the conquest of the mainland, the Venetian Republic rewarded its commander-in-chief Nicolò Mauruzzi da Tolentino for his outstanding service in battle by promising him San Polo di Piave (including its farm and small castle) upon completion of his term of office. Nicolò married Isotta, the daughter of Francesco Sforza, but then was killed in battle. The promised reward was presented to Cristoforo, his son legitimized by Pope Martin V.
After the death of Cristoforo, San Polo passed to the Gabriel family, who retained ownership until the death of the childless Angelo Maria Gabriel. The estate passed into the hands of the Vivante family and subsequently the Papadopoli family, who were its owners at the outbreak of the First World War.
In 1919 the whole complex was purchased by Giovanni Giol, who had only recently returned from Mendoza in Argentina, where he had emigrated at a very young age. There he had built up a veritable empire and the largest winery in the world. Back in Italy, he purchased the whole complex owned by the Papadopoli family: the castle with its extensive grounds, the old winery and a vast expanse of land. Today, Giovanni’s great-granddaughter Luisa follows the footsteps of her ancestors and produces top-class Italian, along with her son Vittorio.

Discover the Largest Barrel with a Capacity of 22,000 Liters

The cellar consists of an amphitheatre with 78 wooden barrels of different sizes, covered by 220 beams. A room with five aging crypts (barriques), used to conserve premium wines, acts as a reception for guests to taste estate-owned products. Within the cellar, a large area is dedicated to wine maturation and refining, comprising 20 barriques of 210 liters, four tonneaux of 500 liters, and 32 wooden barrels of 1300 liters capacity.

Unspoiled Natural Beauty of the Vineyards

Discover the uniqueness of the San Polo territory – home of a broad line of grapes, including Glera for Prosecco, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Raboso. Here, Luisa also cultivates top-quality Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Verduzzo Trevigiano, and Bronner. The vineyards relish a perfect microclimate, surrounded by a heart-throbbing oasis, a small paradise of 14 hectares consisting of meadows, woods, a spring water lake. Guests are welcome to spend leisure time among magnificent centuries-old trees.
