Prosecco owes much of its success to wineries such as Astoria, which worked good and hard on production methods and on marketing for it to be known in Italy and worldwide. The Millesimato 015 embodies all the keys and the reasons behind its success. The aroma has clear hints of fresh fruits, such as peaches, apricots and yellow melons. The taste is harmoniously fresh which makes the wine "easy" and endlessly pleasant. Who said that complexity is the only way to go? As an apéritif, we tasted it together with different cold cuts and it was excellent.
Founded in 1987 by an old family of winemakers, Paolo and Giorgio Polegato’s Astoria prides itself on the quality of its products.
Astoria products are served in the most exclusive restaurants, wineries and bars. Astoria sells wines produced at its own "Val De Brun Estate" in Refrontolo, in the heart of the DOCG zone Conegliano – Valdobbiadene. Forty acres, located in one of the most beautiful wine-growing areas in Italy, renowned for its climate, highlight the harmonious succession of hills and vineyards. The Company links its name to the product par excellence of the winemaking tradition in Veneto: the PROSECCO; this wine, the Millesimato, was awarded several prizes over the years, including the prestigious Grand Gold Medal at the International Wine Competition at Vinitaly in Verona. Prosecco Millesimato Docg and Refrontolo Passito Docg are the house jewels.
Astoria is not just Prosecco though, as it also produces barrique wines such as Colli di Conegliano Docg, Crevada and Croder, relying on the competence and skills of its highly professional staff.
