Founded in 1977 by the Bottega family, the distillery, which had historically focused on creating quality Grappa would eventually add over 10 hectares of vineyards, producing some of the Veneto’s highest quality prosecco. Housed within the Villa Rosina, a 19th century country estate, the vineyard has becoming a defining producer of high quality Grappa and Prosecco.
Being strategically placed within the municipality of Godega di Sant’Urbano, one of the Veneto’s main Grappa and wine producing areas, the Bottaga vineyard has seen its yearly output reach nearly 10 million bottles, with over half being attributed to their Prosecco production. With vines in Valpolicella and Montalcino, namely to produce its Brunello and Amarone varieties, Bottega S.p.A has expanded to become a truly diversified vineyard, enveloping a much larger expertise than its original incarnation as a Grappa distillery.
While priding itself on its high-quality Prosecco, Bottega S.p.A has become renowned for its distinct hand blown bottles, representing a uniqueness seldom seen among large wine producers. Placing a strong emphasis on the look and packaging that goes into every bottle, the company has relied on its glass blowing factory to guarantee each bottle is made to the exacted standards attributed to hand blown glass, especially in the Veneto.
With an attention centric approach to wine production coupled with the company’s outwards looking perspective has seen Bottega’s elegant Prosecco bottles appear on Viking Cruise lines, where the company’s Venetian heritage is on full effect with themed tasting lounges showcasing the best the Veneto has to offer.
