Terre Gaie (Happy Lands) is a family operation directed by Salvatore Lovo and his wife Rita Ferasin.
Terre Gaie is located at the western end of the Euganean Hills in the village of Vò. This hilly area has a long winemaking tradition. Centrally located in the heart of Veneto's wine production area, the Lovo family has been cultivating these lands since the eighteenth century.
The winery was built in 2004 midst the Lovo and Ferasin farm lands. With about 50 hectares (120 acres) of southwest facing vineyards, they chiefly grow indigenous grapes Fior d'Arancio, Prosecco, Semprino, Incrocio Manzoni and Pinella along with some international classics: Chardonnay, Cabernet and Merlot. This modern and dynamic winery produces about 100,000 bottles of high quality estate grown Prosecco from the picturesque and highly favored hillsides of the Padova province.
