About their Vineyards
The area of the vineyards extends into the southern part between Vidor and Vittorio Veneto. The vines are on hills with around 50% slope. The average temperature here is suitable, and the slopes allow maximum sunlight exposure. The work in the vineyards is done by traditional methods without constructing any walls. Due to the slope, most of the work in the vineyards has to be done by hands. Most of their wines are made with the Prosecco and the Glera grapes. Harvesting of grapes takes place manually in the most organic ways.
Wine making Process
The grapes are then processed in the cellar to make the sparkling wine. The traditional method of refining the base and the wine on the natural yeast is used. This helps the wine to get the right structure and acidity. Fermentation at low temperatures gives a distinct finesse to the wines. The Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG wine remains in the pressure tank from 50 days up to 5 months to obtain an elegant perlage.
The wines are unique and genuinely reflect the gifted terroir of the region and the great winemaking techniques.
