Grown in the Valdobbiadene district in the Prosecco region, this bottle comes from the birthplace of Prosecco. Prosecco was originally only grown in this area because of its steep hills which expose the grapes to more sun, helping them to ripen before they are picked by hand, ensuring that only grapes in the best condition are collected.
While the official area that Prosecco is grown in has been expanded in recent years due to increasing demand, this bottle is a DOCG (Denomination of Controlled and Guaranteed Origin) certified Prosecco, meaning it comes from the original, highest quality land in Valdobiadenne, a town that has been growing these grapes for more than three hundred years.
This Prosecco is made using the traditional Italian "Charmat" method of production, in which the wine is fermented in large, pressurised steel tanks, before then being bottled directly while still under pressure. This method was developed specifically for the Prosecco grape (the Glera) in the early 1900s and has been used ever since, helping to retain the fresh flavours of a great Prosecco.
What does DOCG mean in practice?
A DOCG label is a government controlled label that acts as a guarantee of control, denoting the highest quality wine available in Italy. Specifically, DOCG wines are grown under specified planting regulations, with controls on the quality and quantity of grapes picked and regulated fermentation processes, before then needing to pass an expert wine tasting panel to allow it to be sold.
