Producer profile

Col Tamarie

From the hills above Vittorio Veneto, in San Lorenzo, Alberto and Marta lead 4.5 hectares of vineyards facing south, south-east. The vineyards sit at 450 m above sea level (just outside the Prosecco DOCG area but in the Prosecco DOC territory), completely surrounded by woods, and grow from limestone and rocky soils of morainic origin.

They treat the plants with unicist homeopathy, use biodynamic preparations, and are certified organic. Alberto and Marta take care of the vineyards and the territory to enhance the energies of nature, resorting only to tiny uses of sulfur and reduced quantities of copper. They cultivate native grapes — Glera, Bianchetta, Boschera, Grapariol, Perera, and Verdiso — to produce 20,000 bottles of Col Fondo sparkling white wine, spontaneously fermented with their own indigenous yeasts, unfiltered, unfined, and without the addition of sulfur.

Wine region

Veneto, Italy

History

Located in north-eastern Italy, Veneto boasts a deep-rooted history that extends from its early days under the Roman Empire, transitioning through the influential Republic of Venice, and later becoming part of the Austrian Empire until its annexation to the Kingdom of Italy in 1866. This historical legacy positions Veneto as a significant region in Italy's cultural and viticultural narratives.

Terroir

Geographically smaller than some of Italy's renowned wine-producing regions like Piedmont and Tuscany, Veneto is, nonetheless, the country's top wine producer. Its terroir is varied, with distinct geographical zones each offering unique climatic and soil conditions. To the northwest, the alpine foothills border Lake Garda, while the eastern region hosts Valpolicella, renowned for its red wines. Further east lies Soave, Gambellara, and the Colli Euganei region near Padua, known for distinct white varietals. The region spans 90,000 hectares, with 35,400 hectares designated as DOC. Notably, the last two decades have seen an increasing interest in organic and natural wine practices in Veneto

Wines

In Veneto, the spectrum of wines is broad, with a focus on both red and white varietals. Red wines prominently feature grapes such as Corvina, Rondinella, and Molinara, essential for producing the celebrated Amarone, Ripasso, and Recioto wines. On the white wine front, Garganega is the foundation of Soave, exhibiting characteristics of citrus and almond, while Glera, previously known as Prosecco, forms the base for the eponymous sparkling wine. Pinot Grigio and Trebbiano di Soave further diversify the white wine portfolio. The synergy between Veneto's wines and its regional cuisine, ranging from seafood delicacies of the Adriatic to traditional dishes like bigoli pasta, underscores the region's rich gastronomic heritage.
