Bisol Prosecco - Valdobbiadene

By: Anthony Gismondi
A masterclass on an Italian way of life.

There are many great stories in wine, such as the Bisol family, who can point to an ancient document that testifies they were already involved in winegrowing in S.

Stefano di Valdobbiadene as early as 1542. Today in Valdobbiadene, Bisol specializes in making Prosecco Superiore DOCG, from grapes grown under what locals term “heroic viticulture” the steep hills of Valdobbiadene. Today, Gianluca Bisol has assumed the role of president and CEO while his brother, Desiderio, holds the position of chief enologist and technical director; together, the pair are responsible for a range of organically farmed and internationally recognized Valdobbiadene Superiore DOCG crus. We caught up with the charming Gianluca to take a short masterclass in Prosecco and a way of life every afternoon across Italy.
