The grapes for Tiamo Prosecco are selected from certified organically farmed vineyards in and around the village of Valdobbiadene which is located between Venice and Treviso in North East Italy. The soils are predominately sandstone and clay.
After being picked the grapes are destemmed and pressed in order to release the juice. The must is immediately separated from the skins and cooled down in order to proceed with the first fermentation at controlled temperatures. When the primary fermentation is complete, the wine is moved to large glass lined enclosed tanks and sugar and yeast is added and a secondary fermentation takes place. The second fermentation produces CO2 and gives Prosecco its bubbles. Prosecco has smaller bubbles than Champagne and so is slightly less fizzy. This method is known as the Charmat Method and last about 30 days.
