Towards the end of the 1800’s the Biscardo family was into the textile industry as well as the wine industry, while the grandmother Teresa used to run the coaching house – hotel “Tre corone”.
The winery was founded in 1878 and it was one of the first wine companies run by ‘Veronese’ traders. Terenzio Biscardo was one of the first promoter of wine commercial activities starting in the early 1900’s.
