Growing Conditions

Vines are up to 25 years old and sustainably farmed, the equivalent of lutte raisonnée in France.
Grapes are “Balby” selection
Hand harvesting
Soil: Mineral-rich and Rocky Clay


In August 2009, upon receiving its own D.O.C.G., the Consorzio per la Tutela del Prosecco di Conegliano-Valdobbiadene made the decision to revert the name of the grape, Prosecco, to its ancestral name, Glera. Balby and Cosmo were the two original clones of Glera.


• All vinification in stainless steel
• Grapes are de-stemmed and gently pressed, then the must is left at 48-50°F for about 12 hours to allow the heavy deposit to settle; the clear must is then drawn off and fermented
• Fermentation lasts for 15-20 days
• Yeasts and sugar are added to trigger the second fermentation
