GIULIANO BORTOLOMIOL

Following in his father’s footsteps and family tradition with a natural gift for wine making, Giuliano Bortolomiol, while still a young man, decided to enrol at the prestigious Conegliano Wine School.

In the years immediately after the Second World War, the sight of abandoned vineyards instilled in him the awareness of having a mission to share: the rebirth of the vineyards and above all the determination to enhance Prosecco in both quality and renown terms.

His dream was to elevate Prosecco from a local product without great expectations to a prestigious sparkling wine known throughout the world.

Today this dream has come true and Prosecco Superiore, after obtaining Docg designation, has become a wine appreciated at international level.

He was among the founders, in 1946, of the Confraternita del Prosecco (Prosecco Wine Fraternity) and, later on, of the Mostra dello Spumante (Sparkling Wine Exhibition) (today Forum Spumanti d’Italia). Giuliano Bortolomiol was also a master of the Martinotti-Charmat method and, as a great, intuitive experimenter, he was the first to create Prosecco Brut.
