The Fattori family have been producing wine in the Soave region in Veneto, north-east Italy, since the turn of the 20th century. It began with grandfather Antonio Fattori, who planted 17 acres of vines in the hills around the village of Terrossa, so called because of the often reddish basalt soils in the area.
