The Zucchetto family established their winery in 1978 in Valdobbiadene County, in the heart of the Prosecco DOCG. Paolo Zucchetto, son of the founder, began making classic Prosecco as a hobby for family friends. Their quality wines quickly grew in recognition, and today, grandson Carlo continues the family tradition of winemaking excellence producing highly distinctive sparkling wines.
In their cellar, the art of winemaking is governed by a commitment to quality, research, and consumer health. All grapes are handpicked and carefully harvested to avoid any crushing or bruising. They are gently pressed and the juice fermented at cold temperatures to produce and preserve the original varietal aromas. Each wine rests in stainless steel tanks during the cold season and is prepared for the second fermentation at the beginning of the spring to ensure freshness. Their wines represent Prosecco grapes at their best, from the finest vineyards, and ripened under the Northern Italian sun.
Cartizze is the most prestigious cru in the Prosecco DOCG appellation. The vineyards lie between the steepest hills of San Pietro di Barbozza and Santo Stefano in Valdobbiadene, covering a very small area of only 270 acres. In their “Cartizze Alto” vineyards, there is a perfect combination of sun exposure, soil composition, and grade, which offers natural protection from the elements. These factors combine to produce the finest Prosecco grapes in the world.
