IL FOLLO

Il Follo is an agricultural village located in the town of Valdobbiadene at the foot of the famous Cartizze hill. Here it has a cellar where the finest vineyards are cultivated, including the Villa Luigia. This village of ancient winemaking tradition also expresses the history and culture of these lands, for this reason since 2002 it has been assumed as a company brand. Its history begins in Conegliano Valdobbiadene, a hilly area in the North East of Italy, 50 km from Venice and about 100 from the Dolomites. Here for over three centuries the grapes that give rise to Prosecco Superiore are grown. The production area, which covers 15 municipalities and represents the heart of the world of Prosecco, is an Italian historical name recognized in 1969. In 2009, with the reorganization of the denominations Prosecco, the Ministry of Agriculture classifies it as the Origina Controllata e Garantita (DOCG) highest Italian quality level. The origin of many surnames existing today has been constituted, over the centuries, by the type of work that was practiced by people. The "Follador" were those who made some types of processing of agricultural products and turned them into consumer goods. In the Venetian dialect "to fetch grapes" still means to press the grapes and then make wine. Follador has been taking care of this profession in the hills of Valdobbiadene for many generations and today Vittorio Follador, together with his sons Luca, Maria and Marta, carry on this tradition. Prosecco is a wine that originated in the hills of Valdobbiadene and Conegliano more than a century ago. It is obtained through the white vinification of Glera grapes. The processing starts from the primary vinification with which a dry and firm base wine is obtained. Then there is the second fermentation with charmat or Italian method which consists in fermenting in a pressure-tight container (autoclave) the base wine that incorporates the carbon dioxide developed by fermentation becoming sparkling wine. Then there is the bottling phase and quality checks by the competent authorities. If everything is suitable, the sparkling wine obtained can be declared Prosecco and placed on the market.
