At the cutting edge of tradition
The Bisol family, whose historical winery is located in S. Stefano di Valdobbiadene, cultivate directly more than 20 of the best-located plots immersed in the steep hills that lead from Valdobbiadene towards Conegliano, the most prestigious area of the appellation. The land is extremely fragmented and studded with small plots, so much so that the average size of each property is little more than a hectare.
There is also the ulterior complication that the various stages of the winemaking process (grape-growing, wine-pressing, and sparkling wine production) are often carried out by different companies. A working knowledge of the peculiar problems inherent in this territory will allow you to fully understand the importance of that little bit extra that distinguishes Bisol: one of the few companies that directly manage the entire wine-making process from the initial careful choice of land right through to the final bottling process.
This guarantees the maximum quality yield, as each single stage, fundamental in determining the final quality level, requires constant and rigorous control. The feather in the cap is the three hectares of land managed on the summit of the Cartizze hill: an area that winds along the crest of the steep hill at an altitude of 300 metres above sea level and benefits from total exposition to sunlight as well as continuous ventilation that together with the sandy nature of the land makes it an area of rare value.
The 106 hectares of the Cartizze hill are divided up between 140 owners and the value of the land has reached the dizzy heights of more than 2,5 million euro per hectare.
