All the fruit from in this prosecco is estate grown. The Folladors have decided not to source other fruit and make less wine in order to have complete control over the quality of their fruit. The grape for prosecco is prosecco, which few people seem to know. Fermenation is done in tank, rather than in bottle like champagne, in order to produce large quantities. In 2000, more than 250 million bottles were produced in DOC zone of Prosecco di Conegliano-Valdobbiadene, which recently was granted DOCG status, the highest quality guarantee a region can have. Because of the industrial-size scale of prosecco production, it was K&L’s goal to find a small hands-on operation to directly import. The Valdobbiadene is located northwest of Venice in the Veneto region.
