The Bortolomiol winery was founded in Valdobbiadene in 1760 and represents one of the few wine cellars left over the years of strictly family ownership. Giuliano Bortolomiol took care, after the Second World War, to restore the destroyed and abandoned vineyards with the aim of bringing Prosecco from a local product to an internationally recognized sparkling wine (and today with the recognition of the DOCG in 2009, it can be said that his dream has come true). Giuliano was also a master in the application of the Martinotti-Charmat method, and as an intuitive and great experimenter he first created Prosecco brut. Today the company is in the hands of Giuliano’s four daughters, always careful to respect those principles of product quality and enhancement of the territory that have always characterized Bortolomiol’s vision. The company owns five hectares, where the greater space is reserved for the Glera grape.
