Bottega was established in 1977 by Aldo Bottega and was taken over by his son Sandro in 1983. The big nineteenth-century farmhouse in Italy is surrounded by 10 hectares of vineyards.
During Autumn 2001 Bottega Gold was launched in a limited edition. Bottega Gold is a Prosecco Doc Brut sparkling wine, from the Glera grapes, grown in the Valdobbiadene hills. The vineyards are located on a hilly territory that has a long wine-growing tradition. These grapes are hand picked and softly pressed in the winery, then maintained in stainless steel containers. The sparkling wine is produced with the Charmat method. The golden bottle represents the golden tiles that decorate the famous St Mark’s Basilica and protects the wine from any source of light, therefore lengthening its life.
