This is the number one sparkling wine from the Bortolomiol traditional line. The Roman numeral on the capsule and the name Prior bear testament to the fact that Giuliano Bortolomiol had the intuition to create a brut Prosecco at a time when it was only ever an extra dry. Prior symbolises Giuliano’s pioneering spirit and his belief in Prosecco di Valdobbiadene (now Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG) and in the Martinotti Charmat sparkling wine-making method with fermentation in an autoclave, also known as the Italian Method.
About the Producer
Following in his father’s footsteps and family tradition with a natural gift for wine making, Giuliano Bortolomiol, while still a young man, decided to enrol at the prestigious Conegliano Wine School. His dream was to elevate Prosecco from a local product without great expectations to a prestigious sparkling wine known throughout the world.
Today this dream has come true and Prosecco Superiore, after obtaining Docg designation, has become a wine appreciated at international level.
The company is currently run by Giuliano’s four daughters. This generational change has brought with it a new managerial vision, but without altering the principles of family tradition: first and foremost product quality and promotion of the area.
The commitment of the Bortolomiol women is not only to proudly achieve a female work outlook, but above all bring fresh femininity into the world of wine. For the Bortolomiol women, this means, above all, greater territorial awareness. From projects centred on a more aware, sustainable type of agriculture to greater focus on the entire production chain, femininity has become part of the company’s daily life and has been extended to other areas.
The company’s future is expansion. Not meaning just targeting interesting markets to be launched on, aware and proud of the distinctive designation. But also an authentic company commitment towards projects of an environmental and humanitarian nature.
