(By Kate Carlisle) Rome, May 6 - For Veneti (those from
the region of Veneto), Prosecco is part of their past, present
and most certainly future.
Prosecco has risen to become one of the most widely
produced wines in the areas of Valdobbiadene, Conegliano and the
other 13 municipalities in the province of Treviso that make up
the DOC designated area.
Some 5,000 hectares of Glera-grape vineyards, 3,000
small-scale growers and 460 winemakers are dedicated to putting
sparkle into our lives.
And one in particular, Collalto, will be adding flash to
the ANSA photography exhibit in New York May 11-25 as sponsors
of the show.
Collalto's estate straddles the two capitals of Prosecco
production - Conegliano and Valdobbiadene - where 90% of the
bubbles come from.
Prosecco harkening from these hills is especially
characterized by intense olfactory notes of herbs and white
flowers, and a pleasant freshness on the palate.
Conte Collalto (or Count Collalto) is one of the most
historic producers from the area, founded in 958, and stands out
for its long history, quality and its innovative search for new
blends.
Out of the estate's 150 acres of property, 65 are dedicated
to the production of Brut, Extra Dry, Dry Millesimato and
'Sparkling' Prosecco.
Run by the family's oldest daughter Isabella Collalto de
Croy, the winery's focus remains steady on keeping Prosecco at
the centre of its production universe.
A total of 250 acres of property yield 550,000 bottles of
Prosecco Superiore DOCG or 1.5 million liters each year for
export around the world and especially to the United States
where the fragrant bubbles have become a market darling.
Isabella and her husband, Belgian Prince Guillaume de Croy,
run a tight ship tethered by "unwavering commitment and
tenacity," the family says.
With the prince continuing in his 20th year as staff
interpreter for EU institutions in Brussels, Isabella took on
the responsibilities of the family business in 2007, dividing
her time between Belgium, where her family still lives, and
Susegana, where the business is centered.
Gossip has it that American actress Cameron Diaz has become
such a fan that she has bottles of Prosecco Extra Dry Collalto
shipped to her home in Los Angeles after discovering its
pleasures while filming in Florida - one of the producer's
biggest consumer markets in the United States.
"I want the Collalto wines and sparkling wines to exhibit
those qualities of drinkability and elegance that should always
characterise the wines produced in our zone of the Conegliano
area," Isabella says on her estate's Website.
