Bottega has a long history spanning four centuries in the world of wine and grappa. Bottega forefather, Andrea, cultivated vines in 1635 in the hills near Molinetto della Croda in Refrontolo. Originally tenant farmers for the Counts of Collato they eventually farrmed their own land. In the 1920's Domenico Bottega, a passionate oenologist, became a wine trader. In the 1960's his son, Aldo Bottega expanded the family's passion into grappa and in 1977 the distillery, which had historically focused on creating quality grappa would eventually add over 10 hectares of vineyards, producing some of the Veneto’s highest quality prosecco. Housed within the Villa Rosina, a 19th century country estate, the vineyard has become a defining producer of high quality Grappa and Prosecco. Bottega has become a leader in the world of sparkling wine creating stunning bottles and packaging for their gorgeous wines.
