Santa Margherita grows luscious, aromatic Glera grapes in the gentle hills of Valdobbiadene, a town synonymous with the finest Prosecco Superiore, and DOGC status – the highest and most distinctive classification possible. These grapes, grown on the steepest hills of the region, must also be meticulously hand-harvested. We make them into a Cuvée (base wine) that we ferment with selected yeasts at precisely controlled temperatures to preserve full, complex flavor. Once fermentation is complete, we let it mature for three more months, so that the full aromatic potential and vibrant tastes of our Prosecco can truly come together.
