“The Folladors speak of Follador” is an interesting in-depth video created by alternating the evocative images of the Territory with the narration of those who work daily for the excellence of our wines.
In the first frames viewers can admire the profile of the three Credazzo towers, under which a part of the vineyards owned by the Follador family grow. We are then guided inside the company, where Cristina Follador, Sales & Marketing Director, proudly shares the great historical heritage of the family’s wines since 1769, when the Venetian Doge Alvise IV Mocenigo proclaimed the great quality of the wines produced by her ancestor Giovanni Follador.
Behind her stands the tasting rooms’ large decorative panel which decorates the tasting room and represents the Follador family tree, through the nine generations that have passed down tradition over the last 250 years. Today the company is a young, dynamic, modern reality, firmly in the hands of the family and always dedicated to the search for quality that is second to none.
We then see the vineyards immersed in the evocative landscape that has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and some shots taken on the occasion of the “heroic harvest”, entirely carried out by hand, a typical and exclusive feature of the Denomination.
We are then accompanied to the productive heart of the winery, where we are shown some of the main moments of processing. The narration then passes to Francesca Follador, oenologist of the Company, who shares the specifics of the winemaking process and explains how the excellence of Prosecco derives from the skilful combination of traditional viticulture techniques and the most innovative procedures, such as the Gianfranco Follador™️ Method registered by the Company.
Technical manager Federico Salvador, whom we have already met in some recent videos dedicated to professional Prosecco tasting, brings the final touch by summarizing the main stages of winemaking, from harvesting the grapes to bottling.
The video ends with images of serene conviviality, because we must not forget that Prosecco is above all meant to accompany a carefree joie de vivre.
2020 HARVEST – AN EXCELLENT VINTAGE
The quality of the grapes harvested is excellent; the climate was lenient and favorable, as evidenced by the fragrant bouquet of the musts, also good from an analytical point of view. 2020 was a particular and difficult year in many regards, but this magnificent harvest rewards us and gives us optimism for the future.
