In 1949, Giuliano Bortolomiol founded the Bortolomiol winery in Veneto in the territory of Valdobbiadene DOCG, where the highest quality certification of Prosecco is made.
This zone encompasses fifteen townships in a steeply terraced, aesthetically beautiful territory, and the winery sits in the town of Valdobbiadene itself.
The family honors their father with their flagship wine, Cuvée Del Fondatore. This Valdobbiadene DOCG Prosecco Superiore Brut is a single-vineyard millesimato made from vines grown in San Pietro di Barbozza; it is a cru wine that uniquely expresses the land and terroir.
Bortolomiol’s family principles have remained unaltered since its founding: to produce high quality products and support the promotion of their territory. For the Bortolomiol women, this means greater territorial awareness and projects centered on sustainable agriculture. An important piece of this area’s heritage was sericulture (silkworms) in the early 1900s.
Bortolomiol keeps this part of the local culture alive with the restoration of the Parco della Filandetta, an old silkworm factory located in Valdobbiadene’s historical center.
Finally, Bortolomiol supports humanitarian projects. Several years ago, they were a partner in the Benin, Africa project called “Donne per le Donne”, which worked to integrate women in the entrepreneurial world. They are also active in Wine for Life, the most successful AIDS care program in sub-Saharan Africa.
