Cielo e Terra has two strong roots here in the Veneto region in north-eastern Italy.
The first is the Cielo family: a 4 generations story. The second, the cooperative of Cantine dei Colli Berici, with more than 2000 vinegrowers associated.
In 1908 Giovanni Cielo, the founder, purchased a small estate in Montorso, just overlooking the Castles of Romeo and Juliet.
Grandfather Pietro developed the wine business and saved the estate during the war. He was a great communicator, deeply committed to social responsibility.
Meanwhile, after the war, local vinegrowers, decided to band together and set up a cooperative, the Cantine dei Colli Berici S.c.a.
The Cielo third generation, Giovanni, Renzo and Piergiorgio, took the reins in the 1960s. Innovation and commitment made the winery well reputed all across Italy.
