The Le Rive de Nadal farm was founded in 2008 as a viticultural reality and then became a winery in 2011. “We decided to give continuity to the work of grandfather Natale, who until 2008 had led the company with the will and stubbornness typical real breed farmers”, say the owners Stefano and Paolo Guizzo. A philosophy that places respect for the environment as a priority, with the practice of integrated pest management and sustainable viticulture. Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG, this is the renowned fruit of these lands. In Farra di Soligo, along the Prosecco road that leads from Conegliano to Valdobbiadene, is the Le Rive de Nadal winery. Among the splendid hills planted with vines and the luxuriant woods that lead to the Treviso plain.
The Riva del Fal is a 5000 square meter vineyard, surrounded by woods sprinkled with cyclamen, arranged by Stefano and Paolo’s great-grandfather in the early 1900s. Characterized by an extreme slope, about 70%, over the years the family has tried different ways to facilitate grape harvesting: shoulder transport, hand crates, pipes, etc. Until the moment when Uncle Diego, a carpenter by trade, came up with a brilliant idea: the monorail. Said and done, it works and makes this land even more special!
Valdobbiadene Prosecco DOCG 1.11
A sparkling refermented wine in memory of grandfather Natalino, founder of the company, with his date of birth and coming from the most representative vineyard: the Riva del Fal. From these grapes harvested by hand with difficulty and brought downstream with the monorail, the 1.11 Fal is produced in just 1000 bottles. At the sight it is straw yellow, slightly veiled and with a fine and continuous perlage. The nose is characterized by hints of ripe fruit, bread crust and fresh almond. In the mouth you can perceive everything that the olfactory examination has anticipated. We find a good roundness and freshness, and a pleasantly almondy finish. A fresh and pleasant summer aperitif, the ideal match for all sausages, including the Venetian soppressa. It is 70% Glera, 15% Bianchetta, 10% Perera and 5% Verdiso.
Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG Greme Brut
100% Glera. A fresh and elegant Prosecco Superiore DOCG, with a fruity aroma, heroically produced in the “greme”, the inaccessible and difficult hills of the area. The glera comes from a hilly vineyard that guarantees excellent exposure. The climate is particularly cool and breezy, ideal for preserving the fragrance and acidity of the product. At sight it is straw yellow with greenish reflections with a fine and lively perlage. The nose immediately perceives delicate hints of pear and white melon, as well as white flowers. In the mouth there is a perfect and harmonious reference between the light aroma and flavor. Greme is an excellent choice for an aperitif, and perfectly accompanies seafood finger food. Thanks to its light residual sugar and its aroma, it also goes very well with eggs and asparagus.
