The driving philosophy of our winery is to achieve “Natural Balance”. We believe this starts with a dedication towards sustainable agriculture that respects the environment, the local economy and the social traditions of our region. As applied to the winemaking process, the goal of “Natural Balance” is to make a Prosecco that is clean, healthy and easy to drink and whose values are rooted in the earth and with respect to the rhythms and flavors of nature.
Prosecco di Valdobbiadene
The “Gerla” is the traditional wooden backpack that has been historically used to harvest grapes in the steep hillside vineyards. It is also a symbol of dedication and of hard work. Its shape recalls the V of Valdobbiadene, the heart of our production area, where grape farmers like us continue to work these steep lands (albeit with more modern technologies than our forefathers).
Rooted in our land
Our winery farms lands that are almost exclusively in our full control. Every aspect of the production process- from the farming of the grapes to the bottling- is directly overseen by member of the Vettoretti family. We are very proud to give a full family seal of approval on every aspect of the production process.
Natural and wholesome
Our vineyards are located within 15 km of the winery and are harvested exclusively by hand in order to maintain the integrity of the grapes. This geographic positioning allows us to move the grapes quickly and frequently from the vineyards to the winery, thus allowing us to eliminate the need for pre-fermentation sulfite use and giving us a healthier wine with greater drinkability.
Sustainable agriculture is about respecting the land our forefathers gave us and leaving it intact for the future generations. For this reason we have invested in a green certified winery that limits our impact on the natural resources, we use renewable energy and we use recycled and ecological materials for all our packaging.
