WHO: Col Di Luna, formed back in the 1780's when Antonio Maria Casagrande Cosmo moved from the city to hills above Venice to plant the family's 1st vineyard.
WHAT: Glera, the grape used for Prosecco!
WHERE: Vittoria Veneto, located in the center of Prosecco-producing territory, Veneto of northeast Italy
HOW: Hand-harvested grapes are fermented in stainless steel, sugar (usually unfermented grape juice) and yeast is then added to create a 2nd fermentation that produces the tiny but lovely bubbles in the wine.
TASTING NOTES/PAIRINGS: Soft & fizzy pears, green apple, and a whole handful of fresh cut flowers. Serve with orange juice during a festive brunch with friends or on it's own as an aperitif any day of the week.
