A good wine must also respect the environment and the health of consumers.” – John Corvezzo
Founded in 1960 in the small town of Cessalto, the family began in the 70s to experiment with a more Sustainable approach to viticulture. 2009 brought Organic farming, and 2020 was the start of their venture into Biodynamics. These folks are not messing around with their own environmental impact, and yet still making totally delicious bubbly. You CAN have both!
This ancient style of making Prosecco is more similar to the Champagne Method, so while it does still have the bright fruit quality of modern Charmat Method Prosecco, the yeast from this wine is allowed to remain in the bottle, giving it a funky, cloudy, even sour (in a good way!) quality. THEREFORE – it’s really fun to drink on its own, so light in flavor and low in alcohol.
