Founded in 1993 by Francesco Miotto, Paolo De Bortoli and Loris Dall’Acqua, Col Vetoraz is in Conegliano - Valdobbiadene, the most traditional winemaking territory of DOCG Prosecco Superiore.
Wines have been produced here for hundreds of years and Prosecco was first mentioned in documents that date back to 1772. The area extends through the hills of the Province of Treviso between the towns of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene, with the Dolomites to the north and the Adriatic Sea to the east, creating excellent microclimates for vine cultivation.
In fact, Conegliano-Valdobbiadene was submitted as a UNESCO World Heritage candidate in 2010 because of the strong bond between its ancient vine-growing culture and the land, as well as for its beauty: its terraced vineyards against an Alpine backdrop form one of Italy’s most stunning territories.
All work and the harvest are done by hand out of necessity due to the steeply sloping hills, earning the name “heroic viticulture” due to the demanding nature of the labor. Col Vetoraz strives to preserve the natural characteristics found in their grapes using the best and latest technology.
All seven of their sparkling wines are Valdobbiadene DOCG, the highest quality designation for a Prosecco wine. Their flagship wine, the Cartizze Superiore (named for the highly prestigious vineyard it is made from), is intense yet delicate with a creamy foam and aromas of flowers and ripe fruits.
