La tordera presentation

  1. 1. La Tordera Prosecco Valdobbiadene
  2. 2. WHO WE ARE • Vettoretti family has been growing grapes and selling them to other wineries for four generations; • La Tordera brand created in 2003 when the latest three children encouraged their parents to venture and build something of their own; • La Tordera is located in the Valdobbiadene DOCG- the unrivaled home of Prosecco • 60 hectares of vineyards- one of biggest landowners in area; • All wines come 100% from our vineyards (rare among Prosecco producers) which allows us to control quality from beginning to end
  3. 3. QUALITY ORIENTED • The family history is agricultural-pride for growing great grapes! • Manual harvest in small batches leads to freshest grapes being pressed; • Steadfast dedication towards reducing sulfite use • Considered a top up-and-coming winery in Italy
  4. 4. THE NAMES • All our wines are names are based on places where we grow our grapes • “La Tordera” is a name of a hill in Cartizze where the Vettoretti family got its start in viticulture • This hill has this name because it used to have a high density of thrushes that visited it • The thrush has also become the symbol of the winery and is visible on all our bottles
  5. 5. NATURAL BALANCE • Longstanding dedication to sustainable agriculture with limited use of pesticides and fertilizers • Winery is certified “Casa Clima” for reduced water use and greenhouse gas emissions • Solar powered • Bottles are 80% recycled glass and weigh less than normal bottles • Winemaking emphasizes purity of fruit and not chemical additives • Very low use of sulfites- over 30% less than most Prosecco DOCG and over 60% less than legal thresholds
  6. 6. The Area of Prosecco • DOC Prosecco- covers 556 towns in Friuli and Veneto. La Tordera does not make any DOC Prosecco • DOC Prosecco di Treviso- covers 95 towns, La Tordera owns 35 hectares of vineyards with a potential of over 500,000 bottles from these vineyards • DOCG Asolo Prosecco Superiore- created in 1985 and covers 16 towns, La Tordera owns 6.5 hectares of vineyards here with a potential of over 70,000 bottles here • DOCG Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore-the original home of Prosecco and the undisputed best Proseocco growing area, La Tordera owns over 16 hectares of vineyards with a potential production of 200,000 bottles
  7. 7. The Prosecco Pyramid • “Above” the DOCG Prosecco Superiore di Asolo and the DOCG Prosecco Superiore di Valdobbiadene are the single vineyards identified as Rive (31 total) and the most celebrated vineyard “Cartizze” • La Tordera’s single vineyard “Otreval” is made from 50 year old vines in the “Rive di Guia” • La Tordera’s “Cartizze” is a rare wine.
