The name Brigaldara appeared for the first time in the deed archives in 1260 and referred to a group of farmhouses, the villa and the surrounding countryside.The Cesari family purchased the villa and the surrounding land in 1929. At that time, the area was used to cultivate grapes, olives, fruit and cereals. In the 1960s and 1970s, the land was converted to specialize in vines and olives.

In 1979 the winery began producing its own wine rather than selling fruit. The following years brought opportunity to expand landholdings both by purchase and rental. Stefano Cesari who formally founded the current winery in '79 has dedicated himself to becoming one of the most accomplished winemakers in the Veneto area. Tre Biccheri agrees that he has met that goal. His wife Maria is does the business end of things and young son Antonio is working on his masters degree while he oversees sales worldwide.

From the winery:
For our Soave we use only one grape variety: Garganega. A large sparse bunch and a medium-sized berry are the typical features of this autochthonous variety of the eastern part of Verona. For our Soave we preserve the natural aromas and flavors of the peel and transfer them into the wine during vinification. To do so, we use the selective cryoextraction - a partial freezing of the grapes - that protects them from oxidation and enables us to bring in the glass all the aromatic potential of the fresh garganega grapes. Other important elements to enhance the varietal aromatic components are: the microclimate of the bunch and the temperature of fermentation - always kept below 14 ° C.
