Interview of Mr. Andrea Bolla – Owner/Winemaker
Question 1: Do you already export to CHINA ? If yes, where ? If no, what type of importers & distributors are you looking for in CHINA ?
Answer : We do not currently export to CHINA but we are looking for professionals for the medium-high catering sector.
Question 2: What is the most unique and qualitative part of your products, different from competitors ?
Answer : Our CLASSICO DOC and DOCG vineyards are located in a volcanic area, which is why the finished product acquires mineral aromas and citrus scents.
The work in the field is carried out in such a way as to reduce the number of treatments as much as possible and to keep the vineyard and the product healthy and less stressed.
The grapes are selected in the field and processed in four different ways, depending on the product we want to obtain.
Our peculiarity is that in spite of the different scents and colours of the wine, each type is made up of 100% Garganega, a vigorous vine that is very generous in its fruit.
The resulting products are:
White Veneto IGT #WHITE
Soave Classico DOC LE BANCOLE
Soave Classico DOC LE CASELLE
Veneto Passito IGT #SWEET
Recioto di Soave Classico DOCG EL RE’
Question 3: When did you start to export your brand worldwide, and what is your development plan for the next years ?
