Ca‘ Rugate today: The new cellar was inaugurated in 2002 which began the dynamic growth of the last ten years of the estate of Ca’ Rugate. The arrival of Michele brings a lively entrepreneurial spirit that has permitted its expansion and further affirms the winery both in terms of quality and organization. It is in these last years that more considerable viticulture development has taken place. From 2002 to 2008 around 30 hectors (74 acres) have been purchased in the best areas of Monteforte d’Alpone and Montecchia di Crosara which makes a total of 48 hectors (119 acres).
