BIO CERTIFICATION, ORGANIC CULTIVATION
La Vigna del Nespolo is the brainchild of Luisa Bortolomiol and is an expression of her heart-felt enthusiasm, deep personal convictions and desire to carry on her family tradition in the production of sparkling wine, a tradition started by her father Giuliano in 1946. Luisa is deeply connected to her father’s legacy and has inherited his ability to innovate. From this comes a new vision for Prosecco production based on her respect for her land and desire to safeguard it into the future. A vision that has as its guiding principle respect for the environment, for a viticulture from a more natural time when pesticides and chemical fertilisers were not used and when the grapes were filled with the genuine flavours of the earth without contamination. This is no easy task with no guarantee of success and in order to maintain the organic certification of both the grapes and wine, a great many agronomic and administrative hurdles must be overcome.In 2015, Luisa purchased a hectare and a half of family vineyard in the heart of the traditional home of Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Docg which had already been used for the production of organic grapes for some years. Luisa decided to take over production personally, starting from the land. She oversees the work in the vineyards and follows the process right through to production and bottling. The idea is to make a pure Valdobbiadene Docg from grapes originating exclusively from Valdobbiadene and obtained solely from the Nespolo vineyard.She is assisted in this undertaking by Filippo Taglietti, an agronomist with a solid and proven track record, who says this about the project:“The basic idea of the project can be summed up in a concept that emphasises the essence of life and the harmony of all living beings. A natural law, a kind of return - the faithful return to the land of all the vegetable, animal and human waste available. This idea, upon which the management and cultivation of the grapes is based, is seen in the way we depend on the plants, the plants depend on the soil, and the soil depends on us.”.

This is an ancient vineyard and initially there were signs of the Esca disease. However, after just two years of hard work, careful winter and spring pruning and prudent plant protection choices, the vines now produce grapes up to the standard required in the Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Docg area.
