The wine world has plenty of characters but Riccardo Zanotto stands out even in their company. A designer and furniture-maker with an artistic bent, he was born into a family with centuries of wine-growing in their blood. It was a heritage he couldn’t ignore. Riccardo understands one-of-a-kind, the unity of passion and rigor. He says it best himself:

“It is not enough to be born in an old family whose story is related to wine, and it is not even enough to live in a territory like the area of Conegliano to be a good producer. Passion is required and it is an emotion that comes from within, sure, it’s cultivated under the shadow of the Prosecco vineyards and cradled by the essence of the must, but it’s above all natural. I’ve learnt the stories of this land and I got passionate of its secrets. To be part of this world was a step I always wanted to take, but how? It would have probably been easier to stay in the roots of the family and learn the fundaments of the vineyards and winery, directly produce a standard and classic Prosecco, but this is not me. I have my own idea of what a Prosecco should tell.   read more

Whoever drinks one of my bottles should find in it the stories of the past, the scent that made me fall in love with it and that peculiar personality that distinguishes me because it’s witness of a particular territory. With no rhetoric or false modesty, I want my bottles to be recognised among the millions of bottles scattered all over the world.

It wouldn’t have been enough to settle for any territory or entrust on modern methods of wine-making. It was necessary to do some research. Discover the right combination of grape, soil, technique, tradition and timings…. it was more like being tailors than farmers, more selectors than producers. And this is what I became in the course of the years, a tailor that selects quality, taste and tradition.

I don’t do things any differently than the Negociant manipulant that have been writing a tale of excellence for a long time in legendary territories like Champagne and Bourgogne made of accurate and responsible choices in the name and respect of the Terroir.

This is how my wines are born, their sole purpose is to be drunk. Take your noses off the glasses and put aside the technical files. Let’s go back and drink like we would do in an Osteria, let’s go back and spend time together.”
