A Prosecco from the the multi-award winning winery - Bottega - famous for this - its top end Prosecco served in gold bottles.
Bottega Gold is a Brut (Dry) sparkling wine, made using the Glera grapes grown in the Valdobbiadene hills. This area is close to the Venetian Prealps and characterized by a climate perfect for this native variety of grape. The vineyards are located on a hilly territory that not only has a landscape of great value but also a long wine-growing tradition. Grapes are hand picked and softly pressed in the winery. The golden bottle protects the wine by any source of light, preserving its aroma and freshness thus giving the wine a longer life.
Prosecco is a sparkling white wine from the Veneto and Friuli-Venezia Giulia wine regions in north-eastern Italy. It is also the informal name for the grape variety used to make these wines, which is officially known as Glera. Since July 2009, the name 'Prosecco' has been regulated and protected under DOC law, ensuring that wines labeled with the name come only from the specified areas of north-eastern Italy.
