The only winery visit I’ve made this week was to Gregoletto, one of the oldest producers of commercial Prosecco.
That’s Luigi Gregoletto, above, now in his mid-80s.
Amazing to hear him talk about a time when Prosecco was only planted where wheat and other grain wouldn’t grow (now planted on every square inch of the the lucrative vineyard real estate of Proseccoland).
Also incredible to hear him recall the 1950s when he traveled the Veneto in his little Bianchina, selling his wine door-to-door.
More… much more to come…
