Origins – Family
In 1878, Antonio Domenico Salton, born in Cison di Valmarino, Italian region of Veneto, landed in Brazil in search of opportunities, like many other immigrants from Italy. She settled in the Dona Isabel colony (today Bento Gonçalves), where she married also immigrant Lucia Canei, with whom she had ten children. In 1884, they founded a “casa di pasto” in front of the Mother Church. They hosted travelers there, served meals, and also sold cheese and sausages. The wine served in the house was produced from grapes harvested from the vineyards at the back of the facility.
