Among the beautiful hills of Valdobbiadene stands the Veneto sparkling wine house Col Vetoraz, dedicated to the production of fine bubbles through the constant search for three main attributes: balance, harmony and elegance. We are precisely on the top of the hill of Santo Stefano di Valdobbiadene, one of the highest points of the famous Cartizze area, where since 1838 the Miotto family with love and passion has been committed to the production of great wines.
The Col Vetoraz winery manages approximately 20 hectares of Glera rows located at an altitude of almost 400 meters on the foothills of the Conegliano Valdobbiadene hill system. The vines rest on calcareous and siliceous matrix soils, rich in skeleton, and enjoy a cool, sunny climate characterized by significant temperature swings between day and night, a factor that allows the grapes to preserve freshness and accumulate a large amount of aromatic precursors. The harvests, carried out strictly by hand, are accompanied by a strict sorting of the bunches of grapes and precede the parcel-type vinifications, which make it possible to assess the potential of each lot so as to choose the most suitable blend from time to time. During the process, which is carried out according to the Charmat Method, the masses do not undergo any invasive treatment in order to keep the aromatic expression of Glera intact.
Col Vetoraz's production consists of several Valdobbiadene DOCG and Valdobbiadene Superiore di Cartizze DOCG, designations at the top of quality in the vast and articulated world of Prosecco. In fact, these DOCGs identify the historical Prosecco area, the most vocated one, where viticulture has been practiced for more than 800 years. The relevant difference between the wines produced here and those made in a generic Prosecco area is often not so well understood, which is why Col Vetoraz decided in 2017 to remove the wording "Prosecco" from all its labels, thus enhancing the extraordinary vocation of the area to which it belongs: Valdobbiadene.
