This wine is made by a winery run by the Santero family. “Your land will never betray you,” says CEO Mario, who believes that if you tend to your land with love and care it will reward you with wonderful grapes. They work the land in San Stefano Belbo, a small town in the south of Piedmont. The winery, called Abbazia, is named after an ancient Benedictine monastery. Built on the ruins of an ancient Roman temple, the monastery dates back to the ninth century. The winery has been in the Santero family for generations, and the youngest generation has steered the winery away from bulk production to creating fine wines of quality.

This Prosecco was made using the charmat, or tank, method. After the grapes are harvested in the middle of September, they’re brought to the winery and cold pressed to retain as much flavour as possible. The skins, stalks and seeds are separated and sent to a distillery for the production of Grappa; the juice is filtered several times before undergoing its first fermentation in an open tank.The wine then undergoes its second fermentation. Yeast and additional sugar are added to the still wine in custom pressurised tanks. As the yeast consumes the sugar, it produces carbon dioxide. The specially designed tanks trap this excess gas in the wine, making it sparkle. Once this process is complete, the wine is filtered and bottled, ready for you to enjoy.
