Ernesto Cattel founded Costadilà with close friends Mauro and Leonello in 2006 and produced their first wine in 2007. The goal is to rejuvenate the rich agricultural traditions of Tarzo by reintroducing natural farming to the region. The scope of the project goes well beyond wine and emphasizes polyculture: the long-term goal is to have vines, fruits, vegetables, cereals and livestock coexist on the same plots of land. They hope that by creating this example, they can have a model farm for the region, so other farmers who are trapped in monoculture can see the way out.
This is far from the average Prosecco, not made like Prosecco, pretty much has nothing to do with Prosecco - soulful and mouth watering bubbly we can all stand behind.
