Ca' Salina was created by Riccardo Bortolin from the historic Bortolin winery following the division between the brothers in the 1950s. In 1993 Gregorio Bortolin built his winery into the hillside which sits behind the house and this has given him full independence in his production.
Ca’ Salina is the Fruit of his time spent studying at catering school and his many travels. It’s Gregorio’s spirit that has led the winery to become known for its warm welcome.
The winery sits on the summit of one of the picturesque hills in the heart of the Valdobbiadene DOCG zone. From its windows you can admire the Prosecco Superiore vines that embroider the hills and the enchanting Strada del Vino which meanders through them. This family house has a comforting presence in the landscape, a natural stop for tourists who can sample the wines in a bright and welcoming tasting room, while admiring the stunning views.
Cirotto Vini was established in 1949, in the splendid and historical setting of Asolo, a graceful medieval town, also known as the "city of wine", nestled in the foothills of the Dolomite mountain range.
The passion of Leandro Cirotto, founder of the winery, went on to affect the next three generations of the Cirotto family - his son, who was behind the rapid expansion of the firm in the 1970s/80s, and then his grandchildren, who installed their own fresh energies into this family-run concern.
Active in the heart of an area traditionally suited to the production of special grapes (particularly blessed with organoleptic properties for the discerning wine drinker), Cirotto have achieved excellent results across their range of wines, especially their Prosecco Cirotto Extra Dry DOCG Millesimato 2011, wining the Decanter International World Wine Awards - "Bronze Medal"
San Giuseppe is a relatively new producer in the famed Conegliano – Valdobiadene DOCG family. San Giuseppe is at the western end of the “Prosecco Wine Road”, where the hills become a little gentler on the outskirts of Conegliano, the larger of the two world famous Prosecco DOCG towns.
On our initial visit the rain was warm, the clouds were low and wispy and the grapes were bathing in the rain and warm sunshine, giving them their start for the 2013 -14 vintage.
The winery was started in 1989 and is managed today by Carlo Battistella, the second generation of the family. A graduate of the world famous Institute of Oenology in Conegliano, Carlo has been putting all his advanced learning to good use, putting together an exciting range of white and rose wines.
Domus-pictA is one of the newest "cantine" in the region, but its roots go back to 1848, when "Nonno" Oni Spagnol discovered his passion for wine and his love for Prosecco. Built from the ground up four years ago, this architect designed temple of wine produces the very best of Prosecco.
The vineyard is named for the "domus picta" (the painted house), a majestic local villa by the banks of the River Piave, home for over a century to the Spagnol family and decorated with a set of magnificent frescoes, by Cadorin in 1923.Today Massimo Varago, the owner of the "cantina", and a member of the Spagnol family, produces a range of modern, yet authentic, Proseccos among the shiny Swiss steel autoclaves overlooking the ancient hill terraces of the Valdobbiadene hills.
ORA Wines, located at Pieve di Soligo in the Valdobbiadene – Conegliano Prosecco heartland, produces Prosecco with a modern twist.
Nestled in the gently rolling hills of the pre–Dolomites, ORA makes its Glera grapes into high quality wine, which is fast becoming an Italian party favourite.
ORA – the Italian for “now” - is a young and vibrant Prosecco producer, making great strides in the bar, club and party market. Their clear bottles and designer inspired labels are bringing Prosecco, from DOC to DOCG, to a new and international customer profile.
