Ep. 640 Monty Waldin interviews Luana Monterosso of the Bortolomiol winery on this episode of Biodynamic & Organic.
More about Luana and the winery:
Luana Monterosso has joined Bortolomiol Winery in February 2018 as Export Manager. She is now in charge of Brand building and sales in all the international markets.
Bortolomiol is located in the heart of the Prosecco DOCG region, in Valdobbiadene. The long tradition of the Bortolomiol family as wine growers goes back to the 18th century and the Winery itself was founded by Giuliano Bortolomiol in 1949. Giuliano, considered a pioneer of the “Charmat” method, was the first to produce a Prosecco Brut in 1960. His dream was “to promote the quality and the awareness of Prosecco wine and make it a prestigious sparkling wine known throughout the world”.
Nowadays the same spirit of innovation is carried on by his wife Ottavia, who runs the winery together with her four daughters (Maria Elena, Elvira, Luisa and Giuliana) to confirm the philosophy of the Brand: Quality of the product, a strong link with the territory, respect of nature and environmental sustainability.
In the last 15 years the family invested in new technologies with the aim of establishing a more sustainable management in different aspects of the wine business. Always maintaining a strong link with the tradition started by Giuliano.
In 2008 Bortolomiol took the decision to change 5 hectares of vineyards over to an organic growing system, a farming approach designed to preserve the natural habitat of the vineyard.
Today the Winery owns a beautiful historical complex, just in the centre of Valdobbiadene, known as “Parco della Filandetta”, which hosts the organic vineyard, the first winery and an ancient silk mill, which was renovated and converted into a bright and spacious tasting room.
