Canevel was founded in 1979 by Mario Caramel and is located on a flattened hilltop surrounded by gentle rows of Glera grapes, the variety used for making Prosecco. As a winery it’s unusual for the Valdobbiadene area, where grape growing and winemaking are often separate activities. The company has always embraced the entire cycle of production, from the selection and cultivation of the vineyards to vinification and the sparkling process. In this respect it’s like a modern version of a traditional château in the heart of the original Prosecco area, that of the Valdobbiadene – Conegliano Superiore DOCG. Behind the cellar there is a small mound made from the earth removed for the building. Planted with vines in radial alignment, from the top it offers a wonderful view of the property. Since 2016 it is a part of the Masi Group and the last owner Carlo Caramel is a shareholder now.
There are four lines of wine offered: Valdobbiadene DOCG, Valdobbiadene DOCG The specialties, Cru, and Canevel House. These majorly include different types of red wines as well as prosecco.
