The Farm

The Le Baite farm is a small family-run business. It covers 13 hectares of vineyards, between DOC PIAVE and DOC PROSECCO TREVISO.
50% of the vineyards are white grapes: Prosecco, Chardonnay and Verduzzo; the remaining 50% is made up of red grapes: Different clones of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère and the local grape variety Raboso Piave. All of these have led to the creation 13 labels, for these different types: Sparkling, Single-grape and Selections. All wines are certified organic while respecting both the environment and people.

The Story

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.

An area rich in charm and history

The “Le Baite” winery is located in Basalghelle, in the province of Treviso, in the eastern Veneto valley, on the border with Friuli Venezia Giulia.
Located 70 km from Venice, only 30 km from Treviso and the “Prosecco hills” of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene, it is a Unesco heritage site. From here you can admire the Carnic Pre-Alps, Monte Cavallo in particular.
What’s more, it is within walking distance from one of Italy’s most beautiful medieval villages: Portobuffolè, and today’s Oderzo, from the ancient Roman city of ‘Opitergium.’
At the time of the Serenissima Republic, Basalghelle was an important commercial hub, on the routes of the nearby Livenza river. Today it is a small town with a strong vocation for wine making. This is evidenced by the annual Wine Exhibition, held on the feast of the patron saint on 23rd April each year. However, there are still visible traces of the illustrious past in historic buildings such as Villa Aganoor and other noble residences from the Venetian era.
