How we started
Prodolce was a name and an idea bubbling around in Luigi’s head for many years that emerged in discussion with me, Jason, during a wedding, at the bar with drinks in hand at very late o’clock.
The idea & intention behind Prodolce was to introduce a new wine to the market, that would compliment Prosecco and cater to a market that wanted a subtly sweeter wine. To achieve this, what better way than teaming up with an Italian wine producer with a noble history of making high-quality, delicious wines?
The Count ‘Piovene’ family, our co-founders, have their origins in the Veneto region where Prosecco originates and is produced.
The family’s original residence dates to 1540 and designed by the famous architect “Palladio” and is now a UNESCO listed building.
The family already produces a high-quality range of Prosecco DOC and DOCG, which you can also purchase here on our website.
The “secco” part of the word Prosecco means “dry” and Prosecco’s by their very nature are a dry tasting wine. However, our “Prodolce” is pleasantly but subtly sweet, which translates as “dolce,” hence “Prodolce” was born!
In a labour of love, we have created a bubbly wine with a subtle sweetness which will appeal to all sparkling wine drinkers. The subtle sweetness is not overpowering, but the bubbles have an immediate impact without taking over the spirit of the wine.
A splendid, Vegan friendly, drink that you can savour at any time of day or night. Best served super chilled!
We used two types of Italian grapes: Garganega & Moscato, this combination produces a perfectly balanced wine.
We also went a step further & put our sensible hats on and kept the alcohol content to just 10.5%. Applause…!
