The Parco della Filandetta is in the heart of the village, next to the bell tower. It houses the winemaking cellar, the experimental vineyard, the amphitheatre with its tiered stone seats, and the recently renovated tasting room, which occupies part of what was once the small silk mill.
This significant project was much desired by the Bortolomiol family, who is regenerating part of Valdobbiadene’s historical centre.
The restructuring of one of Valdobbiadene’s four silk mills is part of a wider project aimed at creating a cultural wine and food centre dedicated to both Prosecco Superiore and the Conegliano-Valdobbiadene area.
The cellar has recently been renovated in order to reduce energy consumption and rework its spaces, making them more comfortable. Eco-sustainable materials were used as much as possible during this renovation and solar panels have also been installed on the roof.
Drawing on its sense of responsibility as a leading producer of Prosecco Superiore, and as part of a continually evolving sustainable agriculture project, Bortolomiol has pioneered an organic cultivation project in its own vineyards in the heart of Valdobbiadene.
Organic grape growing requires the use of a series of ecologically sound agricultural practices that minimise undesirable by-products and the use of synthetic chemical products in order to improve safety for both the environment and human health.
This cultivation method involves the use of copper and sulphur as pesticides, as well as the choice of equipment, pruning, soil and vine row management, weed control, foliage management and everything else right up to the grape harvest.
The aim is to achieve an overall production process that optimises production quality whilst protecting the environment and human health.
All these actions are only implemented after careful consideration: this is the only way to achieve the organic cultivation or, even better, “ius naturae”, of the vineyard.
Following a significant renovation aimed at saving energy, solar panels were installed on the cellar roof. This innovation will enable a 15% reduction in electricity consumption.
Humans have a basic need for water.
All of the new facilities aim to reduce the quantity of water extracted.
The aim is to reduce the amount of waste produced during all stages of production. Thanks to the purchase and implementation of two purifiers, the cellar’s waste water now meets the strictest Italian standards and has an extremely low environmental impact.
The packaging not only protects products and enables their safe transportation all over the world, but also saves energy following a responsible reorganisation of management.
The packaging is already 100% recycled and recyclable (cardboard and wood).
The corks are also 100% recyclable.
