Winemaker's Notes

"Col Vetoraz is situated in one of the best areas for growing Prosecco, and is among the leading local wineries for quality. . .the Brut is one of the best Proseccos of this type, and the elegant range of aromas, a trademark of all Col Vetoraz products, is reflected in its balanced flavor."
-Gambero Rosso, 2002

You enter any good restaurant in northern Italy. You sit down. Before you can unfold your napkin, a waiter is pouring you a glass of sparkling wine. You begin to protest, but then you look around. Everyone is drinking it. Two delightful things are happening. You are experiencing culture shock, and you have just discovered Prosecco.

Your first sip validates that there is a higher and older wisdom at work here. The Italians know much better than you that Prosecco's bubbles will start the meal with a festive flair, that it will stimulate your appetite, that it will work perfectly with your antipasti, and that you will smile when you see the price on your tab.

For the record, Prosecco is the name of the grape and the wine. It comes from the Veneto Region, roughly between Verona and Venice. When you think of Italian sparkling wine, you might imagine that they are all like Asti Spumante. Believe us, Col Vetoraz Prosecco has nothing to do with sweet wine. On the other hand, it is not as acidic as Champagne and will never hurt your stomach, nor is it neutral and thin like many Spanish sparklers. It is its own animal, and kind of a secret, though this is changing. This wine is uniquely Italian, completely versatile, never boring, and so affordable you can open it on a whim. The utterly charming essence of Prosecco is a round, pear-like quality with hints of flowers and citrus. Why not start all of your meals with a glass of Col Vetoraz?
