An elegant rendering of “dolce vita”
Prosecco was originally the name of an old Italian grape variety that the Prosecco Consortium copyrighted as designation of origin in 2009. The Zonin 1821 family business lies in the heart of the Prosecco region in the Veneto. The Zonin family has been growing wines in this region for just under two centuries and its estate is one of the leading and most experienced wine estates in the Prosecco region. The Veneto is charming, not just because of its beautiful wine growing landscape, good food and fine wines but also its capital Venice. Often referred to as the City of Velvet and Silk, this former Renaissance trading centre is a major symbol of Italy’s art, culture and history. Since the headquarters of Zonin 1821 are just 40 km from Venice, Domenica (the president) and his brothers Francesco and Michele Zonin (both vice-presidents) are also personally connected with the city of love. Zonin’s Prosecco pays tribute not just to Venice but to all of Italy and its cultural, artistic and scientific legacy. Zonin’s Prosecco range is balanced yet diverse to please all lovers of Prosecco. From the most typical of Proseccos, the aromatic Spumante Brut with its subtle perlage, the fruity Spumante ICE, the wonderfully crisp Rosata with its pastel colours to the allrounder, Prosecco Frizzante. The Zonin 1821 family firm owns 1,800 hectares of vineyards, making it Italy’s largest family-run wine estate and one of Europe’s most important private wine businesses.
