As a Premium wine producer, located in the Prosecco area, Giancarlo Moretti Polegato is well aware of the important and deep connection wine/food. Of the importance of high qualified cooks and hospitality staff. That’s why he has supported the school and its educational program by renovating a whole building  to let to  the school  where  students are trained to be ambassadors of Italian cuisine and food.

The building where the school is located belongs to the Moretti Polegato family and is part of a large complex which used to be a spinning mill  and then a stockings manufacture in the centre of Valdobbiadene. Since the end of 19th century to the ’80s of last century it was the centre of the economic life of the village. After that date, the historical buildings had been deserted  and neglected for decades when the Moretti Polegato family  decided to give new life to the area and acquired  the whole complex, starting a great renovation program. New commercial activities were created, including  one of our  winery production site, a supermarket, an inn with restaurant, and some other business activities.

The main building, a very large one, was renovated with the purpose to create the site where the school with classrooms, cuisine, laboratories to produce cheese, salami, bread, pastry,  could be housed.

Thanks  to the support of the Moretti Polegato family the school has found its perfect location  in Valdobbiadene, heart of Valdobbiadene Prosecco DOCG, thus being symbol of  the bond between food and wine, in an area with a great touristic appeal.
