One hundred years have passed since Giuliano Bortolomiol was born in Valdobbiadene. After attending Oenological School in Conegliano, he decided to stay in his homeland to help rebuild what conflict had destroyed—and did so starting with wine. A figure of major importance in the world of Prosecco, Giuliano was among the founders of the Prosecco Wine Fraternity in 1945, and of the National Exhibition of Sparkling Wines. His eponymous winery was founded in Valdobbiadene in 1949. An intuitive and skillful winemaker, and champion of the Charmat method, Giuliano was the first to create a Prosecco Brut in 1960. Over the years, Giuliano’s legacy has been picked up by his wife Ottavia and their daughters. Today his spirit of innovation, and an increasingly sustainable approach to production, is carried on by his daughters Maria Elena, Elvira, Luisa and Giuliana. The Bortolomiol headquarters, “Parco della Filandetta”, was built by renovating an ancient spinning mill, and consists of the winery, a tasting room and an organic vineyard, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

100% Glera. The Prior Brut Millesimato was created in honor of Giuliano’s pioneering spirit and his dedication to the evolution of Prosecco di Valdobbiadene, and was crafted in the Martinotti Charmat sparkling method with fermentation in an autoclave (also known as the Italian Method).

Pale straw yellow. Inviting floral aromas. The palate is light and bright, with flavors of white peach, melon and jasmine. The mousse is gentle, giving way to a graceful acidity throughout the delicately tapered finish.
