$14.50

Founded in 1887 by Francesco Mionetto in the small village of Valdobbiadene, Mionetto has an established reputation for quality, tradition and innovation. In the heart of the Prosecco region, Mionetto produces exceptional wines with consistent national and international acclaim. Throughout Northeast Italy’s Prosecco region, from the Veneto to neighboring Friuli, it is readily acknowledged that Mionetto has been the driving force behind the fast-growing Prosecco wine category. The Mionetto story of global success draws on a blend of tradition and heritage, combined with carefully implemented innovation and sense of adventure. Thanks to Mionetto’s vision and hard work, Prosecco is enjoyed around the world today. Mionetto is one of the area’s oldest wine producers and has long-established relationships with star growers, ensuring a consistent supply of quality grapes year after year. Prosecco hallmarks are freshness, lightness, delicacy and youth, with easy-to-love, fruity and ?oral ?avors, rather than the “biscuity,” yeasty notes often found in Champagne. Sergio Mionetto, grandson of Mionetto’s founder, was the ?rst to introduce the Charmat technique to the area in the years after WWII. Until then, Prosecco was made using the méthode champenoise (secondary fermentation in bottles). Unlike Champagne’s Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier or Pinot Noir, the delicate Glera grape lacked improvement with bottle aging, and rapidly lost quality within a few months. The Charmat method, by contrast, is ideal for extending the wine’s appealing freshness and fruit. Absolute freshness is a mantra at Mionetto. It speaks volumes that Mionetto is the only Prosecco producer to bottle when an order comes in and not a moment sooner.
