2010 September 01 - The extension to plot 86
Merotto Vineyards. Luca Zaia opens the extension to plot 86 in Col San Martino
Words and hard work. There’s poetry in the pleasure of a
glass of Conegliano Valdobbiadene but, as ever, it was hard
work that gave strength and shape to this particular project.
60 years of commitment, courage and determination to
reach the highest levels of quality. The work of wine-growers
who, with great foresight and love, have learned how to
reap the best from their land while preserving its beauty.
The result of this great love and passion is that Conegliano
Valdobbiadene today boasts Docg certification. In reality
the true quality of this magnificent hillside sparkling wine,
now famous all over the world, has only just begun to shine.
This is why the inauguration of a new Docg vineyard is so
important, a piece of land with genuine value created from
a combination of the miraculous generosity of mother
nature and respect for the perfect harmony of the hillsides. The new section of the Merotto winery vineyards
was officially opened on August 2nd by the President
of the Veneto Region, Luca Zaia. In his remarks he
emphasised how this land embodies the precious heritage
of traditional values that has been nurtured through
hard work, and continues to grow today. The Mayor of
Farra di Soligo Giuseppe Nardi and the director of the
Conegliano Valdobbiadene Preservation Consortium
Giancarlo Vettorello were also present at the inauguration,
underlining the importance of the extension to plot 86.
Graziano Merotto’s decision to enlarge his best quality
lands demonstrates his desire to reach the highest levels
of excellence. These are the vines that produce his best
wines, the founder’s Cuvee “Graziano Merotto” and the
“Primavera di Barbara”, both of which carry the Rive di
Col San Martino classification. “Rive” is the name of a
new type which highlights the unique nature and quality of
each specific microzone in the Prosecco Superiore DOCG
