About Nino Franco Winery
Antonio Franco founded the “Cantine Franco” winery in Valdobbiadene in 1919. Valdobbiadene is located at the foot of the Prealps, in the Venetian region, and is famous for the Prosecco vine and wine production. This winery is proud to be one of the oldest in Valdobbiadene, located in the town centre, not far away from the countryside and the vineyards. Thanks to a careful and wise management, the estate has been growing and evolving throughout three generations of producers. Antonio founded it, Nino expanded it and Primo improved the company performance throughout the years. 1982, when Primo took over its management, was the turning point. Primo, supported by his wife Annalisa, began to travel and to successfully export the wines in Europe as well as in the Americas and the Far East. At the same time, he invested in the production process in order to make higher quality wines, eliminating all those wines that were atypical for the area. He also started to monitor closely the grape cultivation with the aim of achieving high quality from the raw material level to the final product. Primo Franco was one of the first pioneers to export the Prosecco and to introduce a different sparkling wine than Champagne into the international market. He has been successful, thanks to his open mind personality, his spontaneity, reliability and competence as well as his charm and ability to communicate his love for his job, and last but not least thanks to his high quality and delicious wines.
Silva Franco at Constance Halaveli MaldivesSpecial invitee Ms Silvia Franco
After completing her studies at the prestigious European Institute of Design in Milan, Silvia Franco returned to her native Valdobbiadene where she began working side-by-side with her father Primo.She represents the fourth generation of the Franco family legacy.And she is also part of a growing number of women who play increasingly important roles in running high-profile Italian wineries. Since joining the family business, which was founded by her great-grandfather in 1919, she has worked in every capacity of the winemaking process, from vineyard management and vinification to branding, packaging, and marketing. Although working full-time for the winery, she has never stopped studying: in 2008 she became a  certified sommelier with the Italian Sommelier Association and she continues to study business strategy and branding. Today, the U.S. is her focus but she travels also to Asia and South America where there is an expanding market for her family’s wines.“We are working to show the world that the Prosecco DOCG represents the highest level of quality in the appellation,” she says. “It’s a niche category that includes only the best wines from our appellation.”
