In 1999 the Plínio Pizzato Family established PIZZATO Vinhas e Vinhos (Pizzato Vineyards and Wines) with the purpose of linking the PIZZATO brand of the already existing cultivation of vineyards to the wine production. The family's forefathers, since Antonio Pizzato's immigration to Brazil from Veneto, Italy by the end of 1800s, were known for dedicating themselves to growing vines.
The Family members are responsible for the whole process that makes wine a beverage of unique identity, from grape growing to winemaking and sale, thus generating a distinguished feature of enthusiasm, dedication, personality and uniqueness translated into wine.
It is with great pride that the Family see their wines nowadays among the most distinguished in tasting and panels of Brazilian wines. In addition, the Pizzato brand can be found in reputable restaurants and wine shops, in Brazil and 12 other countries.Historical archive
