Location of Vineyard
The Zardetto philosophy is steeped in the potential of the Conegliano Valdobbiadene hills, aiming to make sparkling Prosecco that truly emphasizes the characteristics of the beloved land. This requires a consistently high level of quality, from exploring new soil in search of unique characteristics, to a significant investment in technology.
Zardetto Prosecco grapes are currently sourced from:
- Zardetto-owned vineyards in the Conegliano Valdobbiadene DOCG.
- Prosecco DOC designated for limited edition cru wines (86 total acres).
- Limited and exclusive vineyards utilizing special soil or unique terroir characteristics (collected and separately vinified).
- High-quality co-op wineries in the Conegliano Valdobbiadene DOCG hills (including the villages of Feletto, Ogliano, Carpesica, Rolle, Col San Martino and Santo Stefano di Valdobbiadene).
- The Prosecco DOC.
After collecting separate grapes from each vineyard with respect to the appropriate maturation time (depending on exposition, location, soil, etc.), Zardetto brings them to the winery where they chill and softly press them. The juice is then ready for fermentation and initial contact with yeasts. To create sparkling Prosecco, secondary fermentation is carried out in large pressured tanks called autoclavi, also known as “The Italian Method,” over a period of nearly 40 days. This process results in the characteristic flowery, fruity Prosecco taste. Once secondary fermentation is complete, the Prosecco is finally filtered and bottled.
