The estate lies on reclaimed land on the edge of the Caorle lagoon. Almost completely surrounded by watercourses and the lagoon, La Frassina appears as an unspoilt oasis, where the work of humans is reconciled with safeguarding the land. Arriving in La Frassina involves travelling 2km on unpaved road, abandoning the rush of the city to immerse yourself in an oasis of silence and peace, where the green of the crops rests the eye and the gentle sea breeze accompanies the flight of many birds.
The owners are happy to welcome you to this picturesque place to sample their wines, and to show you their vineyards and winery.
The company was founded in the early 1940s when the grandfather Mario Pasti and his brother Marco purchased a section of the Caorle valley and began draining the land. The spirit that animated them then continues to guide the company today in the cultivation of the land. It produces only food for humans: white and yellow corn, wheat, soy and sugar beet, ensuring that the various stages of cultivation are carried out with internal machinery and staff.
The farm also boasts eleven hectares of vineyards. Since 2005, it has started to produce wines. As is often said, "wine is born in the vineyard", so comapny attention is focused on looking after the vineyard at every stage in order to obtain healthy and perfectly ripe grapes. With this specific aim in mind, La Frassina works to control growth, pruning the vines to reduce yield and enhance the quality of the grapes, and if necessary, intervenes by thinning out the bunches in late July.
At harvest time the grapes are taken to the winery, built inside an ancient barn in which the original structure has been retained as far as possible, to preserve the building's history.
La Frassina processes our grapes using modern winemaking methods with as little intervention as possible in a process that is essentially spontaneous. The ultimate goal is to enclose in the wines the specific qualities of the grape varieties and the flavour of the land where they grow.
