The roots of the Panigai family go way back to 1080, when Falcomarius di Panigai was given the title of ‘Squire’.
In 1250 the family was elevated to the rank of Counts with feuds located in the south of Friuli.
Half-way through the nineteenth century a branch of the family settled at Farra di Soligo, between Valdobbiadene and Conegliano, in the heart of the historic production area for Prosecco.
Nowadays the descendents of this noble stock, represented by Count Rambaldo and his children Falcomario and Francesca, carry on their activities as vintners committed to achieving excellent wine.
Villa Maria, the counts’ ancient Hunting Lodge, dominates a vast hilly area owned by the family.
The gentle slopes are home to rows of vines that produce the grapes for the production of Prosecco DOCG in a breathtakingly beautiful landscape.
