CA' DEL SOLE
PROSECCO - ITALY
The area of Conegliano Valdobbiadene lies in hilly countryside situated 50 km from Venice and around 100 km from the Dolomites. Here vine-growing has extremely ancient origins, but the first written document linking Prosecco to this area dates back to 1772. Ever since the introduction of the D.O.C. in 1969, the historic production area has remained limited to just 15 communes. Two of these give it its name: Conegliano and Valdobbiadene, one being the zone’s cultural capital and the other the heart of its production. Its position between the sea and the Prealps ensures a mild climate, with an average temperature during the year of 12.3°C and constant breezes, which allow the grapes to dry quickly after it has rained.
The area is characterised by frequent heavy showers in the summer, with average rainfall of 1250 mm. The hills stretch from east to west, so they have a south-facing slope – on which the vineyards benefit from excellent exposure to sunshine – and a northern slope, usually covered in woodland. The altitude varies between 100 and 500 metres and guarantees good differences between day - and night-time temperatures, so that the aromas develop well in the grapes. For over three hundred years, the Glera grape variety has found an ideal environment in these hills. It needs water, but this must on no account become stagnant: the gradient of the hills ensures that rainfall always drains away.
Ca’ del Sole is in Soligo right in the heart of the region, between Conegliano and Valdobbiadene. A true passion, a modern pathway along a traditional road giving us two incomparable expressions: Prosecco Superiore Conegliano Valdobbiadene DOCG and Prosecco DOC Treviso.
The meticulous attention to the smallest details and the unrelenting efforts at every stage of our winemaking process make Ca’ del Sole wines rich in fragrance and nuance. The secret preserved among these stunning hills is simple: love and respect for your own work and for your own land.
