The distinctly Italian know-how of Desiderio Bisol meets cosmopolitan spontaneity and informality.Enter The Terroir
The DNA of the Bisol1542 brand is laden with intuition, the strength and ability to make bold, state-of-the-art choices, to seek out the new, like pioneers, and to embrace the changes over 21 generations whilst always striving for excellence. It is from this legacy and a profound cultural knowledge of the land and its fruits, that our new Prosecco DOC Rosé branded Jeio by Bisol1542 has taken root.
The Jeio line is the fruit of the unifying bond of two love stories: that of the Bisol family for their vineyards, cultivated with attention and dedication for more than 5 centuries, and Giovanna Bisol’s love for her husband Desiderio, whom she affectionately called “Jeio”. In Jeio’s soul the glam of the Italian lifestyle blends with nuances of international audaciousness and informality, because from Venice to New York every occasion worth remembering is perfect for uncorking a bottle of our bubbles!
The etymology of the word aperitivo derives from the Latin aperitivus, meaning “to open”. A drink able to stimulate and, therefore, to "open" the appetite.
When the Habsburg empire occupied the Veneto, the Austrian soldiers used to order in the osterie shouting: "Spritzen!", which means to spray, referring to the addition of water necessary to make lighter the wine. In this way Spritz was born!
Aperitivo is not synonymous with Happy Hour. The traditional ritual is in fact preparatory to dinner and it’s enjoyed before sitting at the table between 6 pm and 8 pm.
It’s a good habit to accompany a good glass of wine with inviting canapés, finger food or olives, which have the task of whetting the appetite before dinner.
