1951 – Baldessin Eugenio, with the intention of continuing the family’s agricultural vocation, buys a piece of land in via Baite in Basalghelle di Mansuè, Italy. Here the land is tough and hard to work, but particularly suited to wine making.
1970 – Baldessin Rino, as a true pioneer of eco-sustainability and ahead of his time, realises that conventional agriculture, made up of chemical fertilisers and pesticides, will become harmful over the years, not only to the environment, but above all to people. Against all trends at the time, and indifferent to all criticism, in the 1980s he chose ORGANIC-MINERAL farming, today’s organic farming.
1993 – Baldessin Stefano and his father Rino set up the “Le Baite” farm, born out of their love for the Baite area, made up of vineyards and centuries-old hedges, poetry and farming traditions.
