Garganega from Gambellara, its indigenous yeasts, no sulphur addition: Primo Incontro is a hymn to the most authentic territory and to conviviality. This wine is born from 25 years old vineyards located in the hills of the subarea Monti di Mezzo and Faldeo: after a first fermentation with indigenous yeasts, Recioto di Gambellara wine must is added for the second refermentation in the bottle. A young, fizzy, direct and daily wine. Perfect for the aperitif, for a break with friends or during the meals as an ideal pairing with less structured dishes.

Winemaking process: the grape bunches for the base of the fizzy wine are softly pressed and they ferment without the addition of chemical additives. After the fermentation the wine lies on the yeasts until February.
Sparkling process: during the cold months, the grape bunches for the Recioto wine are pressed. A part of the resulting must, rich in sugar and yeasts, meets the fizzy base and is immediately bottled. It lies on the yeasts for a few months before being ready to drink. In the bottle you will find the fermentation yeasts that lay down on the bottom.
