Ca’ dei Zago’s Col Fondo Prosecco has become one of the quickest shining stars of our relatively new Italian Portfolio. The demand for this wine surprised even us: when we first tasted it we instantly loved it, but wondered how far a product so different from most prosecco could spread. It turns out the demand for real prosecco was huge. It’s even become the most talked about wine in Texas! We quickly sold out of the wine, so we had to wait to post this video. The wine is back in stock now, so we thought it was time to revisit it.
When we were in Valdobbiadene last January, we shot this little video with Christian Zago, up on top of the terraced vineyard hill looking out onto the tiny town of San Giovani. Christian explains what it means to him to work without additives, and why he wanted to carry on the traditions of his grandfather. Enjoy!
