Capo di Stato
“Capo di Stato” was born in the historical “100 plants” vineyard, from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec grapes, where Montello’s microclimate (North of Venice) gives it a strong personality.
Count Loredan, after several years of production of high quality wines, decided to make a special reserve of Venegazzù Red Wine in the 1960s. The focus on quality, limited quantities and special vintages, created a wine that soon sought after for special regional occasions. The idea that a world-class, local wine could be served at state functions was greatly appreciated in Venice. Among its first fans was the French President Charles de Gaulle who enjoyed it on his 1967 visit. This event gave the wine its name “Head of State” in honor of this success.

In the history of man, wine and art undoubtedly enjoy a sublime bond. In 1967 the famous Italian artist Tono Zancanaro (1906-1985) dedicated two sensual works to the elegant “Riserva” of Count Loredan which express the dual male and female soul. To his mind the “grape” (feminine) becomes “wine” (masculine). The two fused into the same essence. From that moment “Des Roses pour Madame” and “…pour Monsieur la Bombe,” become the art for the label. Later the wine was produced with only the “…pour Monsieur la Bombe” label. The “Des Roses pour Madame” label is only placed on selected bottles for particular occasions.
