Harvest and Vinification Notes
Geographically, Prosecco is associated with the hills of the Northern region of Italy known as the Veneto region. The unique soils and micro-climates of the area are perfect for cultivating the Prosecco grape.
This wine is produced using the charmat method, in which secondary fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks to guarantee a cleaner finish. Prosecco serves as an increasingly popular alternative to Champagne and is Italy’s answer to refreshing, well-made sparkling wine at a reasonable price.
An elegant and pleasant sparkling wine with a light golden straw color, delicate nose, and fresh crisp taste of green apple. Its slightly sweet nature is balanced by moderate acidity and light bubbles.

The Veneto region is located in Northeastern Italy, lying between the foothills of the Alps and the top of the Adriatic Sea. This ribbon of land, nestled among picturesque vineyards, is home to charming cities such as Verona, Vicenza, Padova, Treviso, and Veneto’s crowning beauty: Venice. Veneto offers numerous combinations of microclimates, thanks to the Dolomites blocking cold temperatures from central Europe, indigenous grapes and wine traditions that hold their own in spectacular fashion. No other region boasts such winemaking diversity in such close proximity. From hearty reds to fragrant sparklers, these radically unique expressions are representative of what drives Italy’s global wine success. Geography might help explain why this region is home to so many individual pockets of wine but it is especially the agricultural and entrepreneurial spirit of its people to make this area one of the leading wine making region in the world.
