VITICULTURE / VINIFICATION

• Hand-harvested
• Natural fermentation in stainless steel tanks
• Aging in stainless steel on fine lees for 3 to 5 months

Prosecco DOC Treviso Sui Lieviti:
• Hillside vineyards in Premaor, Miane, Refrontolo, and Rua Feletto (within the DOCG Conegliano - Valdobbiadene)
• Wine is not labeled as a DOCG because the Gregolettos choose to use a crown cap, which is not permitted, although they find it is by far the best closure for producing this style of wine with a secondary fermentation in bottle.
• Primary fermentation in stainless steel, then bottled by hand along with a small amount of natural liqueur made from their own grapes that triggers fermentation in bottle.
• The secondary fermentation continues in bottle over an indeterminable amount of time, in fact each bottle is slightly different. Vino vivente! Living wine!
• Aged in bottle for 60 days before release

Colli Trevigiani Verdiso IGT:
• Verdiso is a native grape variety to the foothills of Treviso and was first documented in the area more then 200 years ago
• Hillside vineyards in Premaor and Miane
