In this virtual tasting, we will have the privilege of visiting with Primo and Silvia Franco, two members of the founding family of this Prosecco powerhouse.  Like champagne, Prosecco can only be made in a small area of northeast Italy. Nino Franco is in the center of that area.  In 2019, the winery celebrated its first 100 years of operation.


  • “Cantine Franco” was founded in Valdobbiadene in 1919 by Antonio, who set out right from the start to make a quality product.
  • With his son Nino, who carried on the tradition, the winery grew, consolidated and expanded.
  • But it was Primo, first with his father Nino and later alone, who modernized the winery.


  • The winery’s ‘Rustico’ was named the top wine on “The Enthusiast 100 of 2019” list.
  • Wine Enthusiast says: “Nino Franco is another firm that believes in the aging potential of the denomination’s superior offerings.”
