A the end of the 1960’s his son Giuseppe joined the father and started a small business by selling the wine in demijohns to both private consumers and local wholesalers.
Starting from the 1980s, the “Bragato Giuseppe & Sons” began to sell the wine in bottles: 1982 was the first vintage of bottled wine. Since then the business underwent a process of gradual and constant growth and improvement.
The real change came in 1997, when the “Bragato Giuseppe & Sons” turned into “Vigne del Bosco Olmè” led by Romano’s nephew Vittorino, who is still carrying on his grandfather‘s dream with renowed passion and enthusiasm. The new estate name was selected to honor the beautiful and precious local wood Olmè, which borders protect the vineyards.
Important changes took place under Vittorino’s management. Bunches are thinned in order to improve the quality of the grapes and the wine portfolio is enlarged to include premium oak aged wines and the first “passito” wine made of Verduzzo grapes.
In 2002 he also proceedes with the extention of the vineyards, the building of the new larger cellar and the renewal of the equipment.
