|The Canella winery, founded in 1947 by Luciano Canella, is now run by his children, Alessandra, Lorenzo, Nicoletta and Monica. Luciano Canella's parents owned a small, family-style restaurant in San Dona di Piave (30 km - just under 19 miles northeast of Venice) and Luciano was in charge of wine supplies. Upon discovering his interest in fine wine, he concentrated on recognising quality and increasingly specialized in enological issues. Thanks to his passion for winemaking innovations and new bottling technology, he has always been abreast of the latest developments.|
From the very beginning, Luciano Canella gave great importance to the image that was conveyed. His bottles boasted elegant labels and drip rings, new shapes, special designs. In the 1980s, Canella specializes in the production of fizzy and sparkling wines employing the finest grapes in the Piave area as well as the Prosecco of the nearby Conegliano and Valdobbiadene hills and joins the Prosecco Consortium. The Canellas' passion for Prosecco, their trademark love of a new challenge and pioneering spirit lead them to tackle wine and fruit cocktails. Hence Bellini, which is soon to become a major international success.
