The 2019 Vintage Will Be an Unforgettable Year

Pre-harvest analysis carried out by the technicians of the Consorzio di Tutela offered a positive preview and we are happy to confirm that the 2019 vintage is of extraordinary quality.

Harvesting began about ten days later than average, due to a cooler spring than usual, which delayed the budding, but then the constantly hot summer favored the perfect ripening of the grapes, giving them the perfect balance between sugar and acidity, in addition to the ideal pH for the production of an excellent Prosecco Superiore DOCG.

This harvest took place a few weeks after the Conegliano Valdobbiadene was named a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, and it is also the year in which we celebrated our 250th Anniversary. It is therefore the culmination of a period full of events and important goals, both for the Territory and for the Follador.

Francesca Follador, winemaker, expresses her absolute satisfaction:

“The quality of the grapes harvested is truly excellent. The frequent night rains and sunny days alternated in a virtuous circle, allowing the fruit to obtain a harmonious, fragrant and fruity bouquet, of optimal quality also from the analytical point of view. We will be able to savor the typically full tastes of past vintages, thanks to a balanced level of treatments carried out in the vineyard and above all due to our consistent commitment to the exclusive Gianfranco Follador Method, a vinification method which enhances grapes already impressive quality by bringing out the intense aromas and perfumes one has come to know in a glass of Follador Prosecco. Despite the slight decrease in production compared to previous years, this 2019 is a harvest that will be remembered over time.”

For each winemaker, the harvest represents a crucial moment, because based on its performance, reliable predictions can be made about the quality and characteristics of the following vintage. We can therefore say with certainty that this year the “heroic harvest” has fully exceeded expectations, and assure our admirers that in 2020 they will taste a Prosecco that meets the highest standards of excellence.
