Information About Merotto
The relationship between Merotto's family and wine is centuries-old. In the early 1900's Agostino Merotto was well-known for his Prosecco, but it is from the second half of the 1900's that the Merotto's family will experience new and interesting developments. It is then that Graziano Merotto takes the directorship of the firm. The new director with his radical and innovative approach experiments the first "spumantizzazione" of the Prosecco wine. This is an in-bottle fermentation or sur lie. In the 1980's the winery begins to produce sparkling wine, the so called "Charmat" method and since then all the processes of wine-making are made there: the crushing of the grapes, the controlled fermentation of the musts, the process of acquiring its sparkling and finally the exclusive labelling and packaging operations.
