Prosecco tasting, winery tours, sales.

You’ll find Bortolomiol on the Strada del Vino, the famous Prosecco Wine Route that runs between Conegliano and Valdobbiadene.  All of the Bortolomiol vineyards are in the DOCG zone, with some located on the hills of Cartizze, where the manganese-rich soil, the bright sunshine and fresh air all work together to produce perfect Prosecco grapes.

Bortolomiol is a winery of international acclaim, which is owned and directed by sisters Maria Elena, Elvira, Luisa and Giuliana, together with their mother Ottavia and expert oenologist Gianfranco Zanon. The family can trace its history of Prosecco-making back as far as the eighteenth century, when Bartolomio Bortolomiol set up his first winemaking business in Valdobbiadene.

Bortolomiol make a range of Proseccos in different styles, often adding small amounts of Perera, Bianchetta and Verdiso to the blended wine in order to bring out the Glera grape’s natural flavours and perfumes.  Bortolomiol are committed to preserving the local environment, and have recently begun making an organic Prosecco.

Not too long ago, the Bortolomiol family transformed one of Valdobbiadene’s old silk mills into a Prosecco tasting room and arts venue. Contact the winery for more information about events at the Filandetta or tours of the winery itself.
