The names of our bottles: family, territory, dialect


[ˈnɔnoˈnɛ·no] Nèno is the dialect diminutive of Nazzareno, our maternal grandfather (nonno in Italian) with whom we spent most of the summer holidays. All-round farmer, first as a sharecropper then as a small owner, with grandmother he also managed a small family stable with half dozen of dairy cows.
In his fields, he has always cultivated under the vines the grassy meadow for the cows feeding. The coexistence of the vineyard and the forage got easier with Belussera or “ray” vine training system, because the much wider rows made possible to work hay easily.


[ˈio·tɔ·mì·o] As several branches of the Da Lozzo family do exist, the one coming down from Conegliano hills was nicknamed Tomìo, to distinguish it from the one left on the hills.
Our paternal grandfather, factory worker before and then farmer, possessed a small property on which he cultivated the vine: Prosecco (Glera grape), Merlot, Tocai, Pinot Bianco and the steady Uva Fragola (Vitis Labrusca). His name was Luigi, nicknamed Io. So the wine name IoTomìo gets together name and surname: Luigi Tomìo Da Lozzo.


le·mà·bje] The word (and female name) Amabile in the Venetian dialect (which generally shortens rather than lengthen to spare time…) is shortened to Màbie. Since in Charmat sparkling wines the Extra Dry version is of medium sweetness, with a higher sugar residue when compared with Brut (in our case NonoNèno), we decided to call our Extra-Dry Prosecco LeMàbie: literally It’s Amabile, it’s pleasantly lightly sweet.


[sul·la·rù] In the adjoining village of San Vendemiano, where most of our vineyards are located, there is a plot with a very particular soil. From the surface down to the depth of about 60 centimeters, the texture is clayey with the presence of stones of various diameters, however, beyond this depth the soil changes and is composed of sand of various granulometry mixed with stones of a thousand diameters and shapes, called in dialect .
This heterogeneous mixture forms an almost impenetrable layer very rich in minerals that the roots of the vine are able to reach and absorb, lend the wine produced a special flavor. From this soil we obtain the Prosecco base for our Prosecco Spumante Brut Rosé DOC Treviso. SullaRù means on the Rù.


[à·miˈre·ṣi] At the beginning, our Pinot Grigio was called Rèsi, diminutive of the name Teresa (our maternal aunt). With the European registration of the trademark, it became necessary to make the name more complex to get it distinguished. We therefore concluded that the addition of the prefix Ami (from the dialect word AmiaAunt) was right for us: AmiRèsi is aunt Teresa.


[lemit͡ʃèe] The latest arrival to the family in 2023 is LeMicèe. To grant the requests of our several
customers, we decided to bottle the Chardonnay coming from our older vineyard, since we
planted it way back in 1999. But we wanted to try something different for the occasion, so we
chose for this wine a passage in oak barrels for 6 months, followed by a cut with a steel refined
part. Where does the peculiar name LeMicèe come from? We picked it from the previous owner
of the land: Michele known as Micèe. Maybe it’s not immediate for non-Venetian… but for us it’s a
sound that reminds us about our folk and home in good spirits!
