New Gemin Prosecco Sparkles at Mundus Vini
It’s only just arrived into our portfolio but our Gemin Prosecco DOCG Extra Dry is already turning heads not just in the UK but around the world after it won a Silver Medal at Mundus Vini in Germany last month.
The most celebrated of Proseccos come from the hillside vineyards of Conegliano Valdobbiadene, the original production area for Prosecco. Here the hills are very, very steep.
Gemin’s Valdobbiadene vineyards are farmed in accordance with organic practices. For the winemaking, grapes are soft pressed at a controlled temperature and with selected yeasts in an autoclave for at least 30 days with Charmat or Martinotti method. Extra Dry, it has 16g/l of sugar.
Prosecco Valdobbiadene DOCG can only be made in the Treviso province of Veneto on the hills between the towns of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene. Lying halfway between the Dolomites and the Adriatic Sea, the slopes have a unique microclimate – full sun ripens the grapes and high altitude and breeze ensure freshness even in the hottest summers. The steepness of the hills also means that everything—from pruning to picking—is principally done by hand.
