The longest-lived cooperative in the Veneto region changes its image on the market and looks to the future with confidence thanks to a record balance of 143.8 million in turnover.

"The dress has changed, but certainly not the soul that has guided us for 125 years in the search for the best result for our 2,000 contributing members and for all those customers who have been buying our bottles for years", begins the general manager of CADIS 1898 Wolfgang Raifer.
CADIS 1898 is the acronym that takes up the initials of the historic name, accompanying the year of foundation of the group: a combination that brings with it a balance between modernity and historicity. The completely redesigned logo has a more minimal and contemporary graphic identity, as does the new website (, fresh and dynamic, effective in communicating and presenting the great reality of the wine group.

And the excellent results of the 2022 financial statements are also linked to this desire for enhancement, closed with a turnover of 143.8 million euros (16% on 2021), made up of 66% by the domestic market and 34% from the foreign one. All this despite the 6 % drop in volumes. The 2,000 winegrower members this year saw the liquidation of the grapes rise to 66.5 million euros with an average profitability per hectare of over 10,300 euros. “These data encourage us to continue on this path, aware that there is still a lot of work to do, but sure that new satisfactions will come in the future”, concludes Raifer.
