While there are two areas in the Prosecco (now DOCG), the Valdobbiadene is considered to be the superior of the two thanks to its rolling hills and elevations around 300 meters above sea level, giving more elegant, aromatic wines with better structure.
The Bortolotti family has carefully selected a group of viticulturists within the Valdobbiadene appellation over the years, so that only grapes of the highest quality are vinified – all farmers practice organic methods of viticulture. The consortium of the appellation releases an agronomical bulletin to inform the viticulturists regarding the danger of diseases/ pests. Only organic fertilizers, copper and sulfur-based products are used for insect and disease control. In the majority of the vineyards, natural cover crops (grass cover) are left between the rows of vines to aid fertilization. SO2 is used within the limits of the Italian regulation to preserve the wines.
