Mionetto was founded in 1887 by Francesco Mionetto in Valdobiandene in the heart of the Prosecco region of Treviso. The family-owned winery is one of the first producers in the area. Today everyone around the globe knows and loves Mionetto Prosecco. Mionetto has established a reputation for quality, tradition, and innovation.
Throughout Italy’s Prosecco region, from Veneto to neighboring Friuli, it is widely acknowledged that Mionetto has been the driving force behind the fast-growing Prosecco wine category. Mionetto is one of the best selling Proseccos and it is apparent why – it is fresh, crisp, easy to drink, and pairs with a wide variety of food. Enore Ceola – CEO Freixenet Mionetto USA, says “You are not celebrating anything when drinking Prosecco, but you are simply enjoying good times with family and friends”.
Mionetto Prestige has pleasant, fine, and consistent bubbles. You can taste a very unique balance of sugar, acidity, alcohol, and yeast. It is fresh and fruity. A great prosecco by itself, to pair with food or mix into a cocktail.
Valdo “Marca Oro” Prosecco DOC – Brut
I shared a glass of Valdo Marca Oro Prosecco with Matteo Bolla. Valdo is his family winery and one of the historic wineries of the Prosecco region founded in 1926. The winery is located at the foothills of the “pre-alps” around Treviso in the heart of Prosecco.
Valdo has always been at the forefront of innovation, continuously experimenting and propelling Prosecco to greater levels of excellence. The iconic label of Valdo Marca Oro, meaning golden seal and was first introduced in 1950, and has since won the hearts of consumers around the world.
Made with 100% Glera grapes, the Marca Oro is a brut style Prosecco with a fine perlage and a crisp fruity palate. Matteo emphasizes that “Marca Oro is well balanced and aromatic, making it the perfect pairing with a great playlist that is accompanied by ham and cheese or seafood”.
Bottega “Gold” Prosecco DOC – Brut
Bottega Gold is the perfect premium quality Prosecco to show off at parties and social gatherings. The beautiful and elegant gold bottle is unique and sexy. Bottega Gold is obtained by the vinification of Glera grapes that are grown in the Treviso hills located between Venice and the Dolomites. It has a very aromatic bouquet of golden apples and exotic fruit.
Bottega gold with its elegant and celebratory gold bottle is the best prosecco to celebrate a special occasion. Tasting with Elena Schipani – Brand Ambassador, she demonstrates how Bottega Gold is a great Prosecco for Bellini Cocktails. All you need is fresh peach juice, Bottega Gold Prosecco, and ice.

Villa Sandi “Il Fresco” Prosecco DOC – Brut
Villa Sandi takes its name from a majestic 1622 Palladian-style villa set in the middle of the Prosecco region. The Villa represents the confluence of art and architecture that has manifested itself in the Venetian landscape for many centuries. Villa Sandi owns all its vineyards in all denominations of Prosecco, which is a unique element.
Il Fresco means freshness, as the Villa Sandi Prosecco is best enjoyed fresh and young. The Villa Sandi “Il Fresco” Prosecco is fruity with hints of peach pear and white flower.

La Marca Prosecco DOC – Extra Dry
In the heart of Italy’s lush Prosecco region, the La Marca Trevigiana zone grows the revered Glera grapes for which they use to make their delicately flavored wines. La Marca believes wine is about connection and thus Prosecco is a wine to be shared daily with friends and family. La Marca is known for its signature elegance and fresh style that is extra dry.
Claudia Manetta, export manager of La Marca says the characteristics of the Glera grapes are floral and fruity, which makes Prosecco the ideal choice to be paired with a wide range of food. La Marca is the ideal picnic bubbly or simply sitting at home on the couch. Some traditional pairings for La Marca are salty chips, nuts, parma ham, or sliced bread with ricotta and dry tomato.
Prosecco epitomizes the Italian philosophy of la dolce vita or the good life. Cin Cin!
