“The Podio vineyard first appears in 1467, when the Count Damiano donated his land to his staff to grow grapes. In return, he demanded on the one hand that half of the grapes belonged to the castle, but above all he demanded that all grapes from the Podio vineyard be reserved for the count (“salvo et riservato vites Podii Serrae”).”
