Founder's tour at Bortolomiol
Here is what you will live
Documents dating back to the mid-18th century certify the existence of Bartolomeo Bortolomiol, the forebear from whom today’s family takes its name and whose trade it has plied for generations. Bartolomeo spent his life growing grapes on the hills of Valdobbiadene. Passing his love of the land and his ability to obtain the best from it on to his descendants. His lessons were well learnt by Giuliano Bortolomiol, the founder of today’s sparkling wine company.
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.
This is a story of the life of a man who, one step after another, consistently with determination, transformed Prosecco, once drunk only in and around Valdobbiadene and Conegliano, into an international star. Representing Made in Italy sparkling wine on the world stage more than any other. The story of the Prosecco begins after the Second World War and is one of poverty, dignity, emigration, bicycles ridden to school, reconstruction of the country and of possible alternatives. The countryside was in a disastrous state and farmers preferred to abandon the hills and move onto the plains to find better-paid work. Everyone had to be convinced that there was a future in that wine sold draught and served in a carafe: the history of a dream with no flights of fancy, just concrete steps; founding the Confraternity, the Company, setting up the Consortium, renovating Villa Dei Cedri, and creating the National Sparkling Wine Exhibition.
