Luca Follador represents the younger generation at this estate and his introduction of a less expensive range of Prosecco 'Frizzante' wines (which are not DOC) has been a great success including in the USA.
Allegedly on his first trip to the States he arrived at his distributor's office in NY to present the wines to their clients, unshaven, in tight blue jeans and a very tight white T-shirt, because he said, 'this is what the girls like!'. These are fun wines, but very good quality too.
Oenotria the Greeks called Italy - the 'land of vines' - and they'd know as they took the first vines to the peninsular, where they thrive to this day in every region of the country.
