Paladin was founded by Valentino Paladin in 1962, near Treviso in Motta di Livenza. He moved soon after to Annone Veneto, a historic village on the ancient Roman road Postumia. Valentino discovered his passion for winemaking as a child following his grandfather around a cellar, and passed that on to his family who now operate under a third generation. Valentino’s granddaughter Francesca now runs operations with the same passion and dedication.
