For a long time we have considered Col Vetoraz to be one of the most interesting and authoritative observers to understand the extraordinary winemaking vocation of the heroic hills of Conegliano Valdobbiadene. Moreover, the winery from Santo Stefano di Valdobbiadene (Treviso) also represents one of the most dynamic realities in terms of wine tourism and the landscape that can be admired from its "natural terrace" is literally breathtaking.
Hoping to return soon to visit Col Vetoraz, we had the pleasure of tasting its Cuvée 5, a Valdobbiadene docg extra brut 2020 that literally won us over in particular for its ability to combine fragrance and roundness, softness. The extra brut (with a sugar residue of 5 g / l) undoubtedly enhances the "fruity" and "floral" characteristics of Glera and at the same time also enhances its freshness and minerality. The nose immediately brings hints of white fruits (acacia), but also of pear and white peach, as well as beautiful citrus sensations (cedar). In the mouth it arrives creamy, velvety, fresh and round at the same time. A very pleasant drink.
We paired it with a simple but very tasty octopus and potato salad and the wedding was perfect.
Col Vetoraz is located in the heart of the Valdobbiadene DOCG area, at almost 400 mt above sea level, on a hill that is part of the well-know Cartizze hills. It is right here that the Miotto family settled in 1838, developing the vine cultivation from the beginning. In 1993 Francesco Miotto, descendant of this family, together with the agronomist Paolo De Bortoli and the oenologist Loris Dall'Acqua founded the current Col Vetoraz, a small winery that was able to innovate and grow reaching in just 25 years the top of Valdobbiadene DOCG production both in quantitative and qualitative terms, with over 2,300,000 kg of DOCG grapes vinified per year from which is selected the production of 1,200,000 bottles. A great respect for tradition, deep love for the territory, extreme care of the vineyards and a scrupulous methodology of the production chain as well as the production of large cuvées, have allowed Col Vetoraz over the years to obtain excellent wines and flattering results at the most prestigious national and international wine competitions.
