• A family estate, belonging to the Bonotto family since the early 1970s. • The land was originally owned by the Tiepolo countesses, one of the area’s most famous families and the inspiration for the winery’s name — le Contesse (literally, “the countesses”). • Total production area: 200 hectares (494 acres). • State-of-the-art production technology. • Exclusive “single fermentation” production method that ensures no exposure to oxygen (until bottling) and that wine never oxidizes. • This results in the finished wine retaining the original fresh, fruity character of the newly harvested grapes and less residual sulphites. • Elegant packaging and great attention to detail. • Climate: moderate-warm, influenced by the vicinity of both the Alpine Dolomites and the Adriatic Sea.
Le Contesse’s wines are as soulful as the family that built this winery from the ground up. It all started many years ago when patriarch Loris saved enough money to buy their first parcel of land. Today, this family-owned and operated winery makes benchmark Prosecco that reflects their local roots.
