Winemaker Stefano Pola harvesting high elevation Glera for single vineyard Prosecco
The good folks at Andreola were extremely instrumental in helping their main growing region gain the noble DOCG status, which Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore did in 2010. They farm approximately 40 hectares of steeply sloped vineyards, containing clayey, sandy soils within the lauded province of Valdobbiadene at elevations averaging around 400 meters asl. These vineyards are planted mostly to Glera (known by the locals as Prosecco, with small amounts of Verdiso, Perera & Bianchetta.) In charge of operations is Stefano Pola, who has valiantly continued what his father Nazzareno started in 1984. 2010 also marked the year Andreola became the first producer of VPS to join CERVIMCenter for Research of Environmental Sustainability and Promotion of Mountain Viticulture, created in 1987 with the specific task of promoting & protecting all aspects of ‘heroic’ viticulture in mountainous areas.
