The Pedevenda vine is one of the oldest grape varieties, most of them forgotten, grown in the province of Vicenza. Its main use is for the production of the famous Torcolato (raisin, wine typology Breganze), although in some cases interesting dry wines have been obtained.
The first information about its cultivation date back to 1754, when Valerio Khanates aka Aureliano Acanti, includes “the grateful Pedevenda” among the famous wines of the Vicenza territory. Even Acerbi in 1825, and Zadar in 1901, speak of this vine, the first one citing it as Pexerenda and the other as Peverenda. The origin of the name is unknown.
The berry is white, medium, and oval with thick and consistent golden-yellow rose skin. The bunch is medium-large, elongated pyramidal, usually with a wing uttered, and with a medium or small, three-lobed leaf.
The Pedevenda grapevine has good vigor and vintage mid-early maturing.
The Pedevenda vine gives a straw yellow colored wine, with good acidity and structure.
