About Redentore

The name Redentore comes from the history and from the traditions of the territory of Venice, where were created the first specialized vineyards of Italy and where the culture of viticulture and oenology have always been in the lead.

Redentore means redemption: freedom from the plague that struck Venice between 1575 and 1577. It evokes one of the most traditional festivals, the Redentore Festival. Every third weekend in July the Venetians celebrate deliverance from the plague with a spectacular fireworks display and sumptuous dinners as the San Marco harbour fills with boats.
