Prosecco is now in vogue as a sparkling wine of choice. This is a relatively recent development. It is not long since Prosecco was viewed as a downmarket wine in a market that chose other wines such as Cava, and even Asti Spumante, a long way before Prosecco was even considered. Champagne was, of course, further ahead still.

Now Prosecco graces the best of occasions - weddings included. It is often chosen first!

What did we know. Hindsight is such a leveller of our ignorance!     

the Dal Bianca family knew! They have been making the very finest of wines from the best hills in Prosecco since the 1940's. Their belief in those hills has been rewarded by both the very finest of sparkling wines and also by their hills' recent elevation to the Unesco World Heritage List.      

In this podcast Federico dal Bianca tells us in a precise, and at times humble, delivery why and how his family are custodians as well as winemakers. His knowledge is an education for us all who want to know more about one of the world's great sparkling wines and why Masottina is so brilliant. 

They tell us on their website that , ....'Like a staggeringly beautiful painting, or a statue with a stunning likeness, these wines convey the inimitability – the uniqueness – of these hills.
