Nani Rizzi and the Valdobbiadene Confraternity

Being selected in our own territory means a great value to us and that is the reason why we’re truly proud our bottle has been the chosen one by the Valdobbiadene Confraternity as the best Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore Extra Dry DOCG 2021.

The confreres themselves, the “Valdobbiadene’s Knights” (winemakers and enologists), announce every year the winning Valdobbiadene Extra Dry Docg among the ones presented by the wine makers of the area. A fixed occasion since 1969 whose aim is to present a wine that can be taken by the consumer as a landmark in terms of quality and kind of product, in accordance with the local, typical features of the territory, as well as its own identity.

The Valdobbiadene Confraternity was born in 1946. Those years were really difficult times for the inhabitants of Valdobbiadene as they were recovering from the two World Wars that left the population devastated, lands almost deserted, many homes and fields destroyed. The vineyards, that nowadays surround us, had been additionally damaged by the phylloxera which were already affecting many grapevines in Europe at the end of the 18th century. Regenerating the wine-producing sector might have been the turning point to revive the territory. This is what the Confraternity’s founders believed in and that’s the main reason why the Association was founded: providing some guidelines, regarding both technical and ethical-moral aspects, remains still today their first priority.

5.000 numbered bottles characterized by the original Confraternity’s label will be marketed by Nani Rizzi: a limited edition we cannot wait to let you taste.
