Marchiori

The Marchiori winery is a small family business and in 2002 the new generation took over the company from their father. Creating a new structure having Sara who takes care of the commercial, Giuseppe of the vineyards, and Umberto as winemaker.

The Marchiori family is located in Farra di Soligo and is in the hills of Valdobbiadene, a UNESCO landscape, thus producing the famous wine: Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG. Farra di Soligo is located among the most famous municipalities, Valdobbiadene e Conegliano. The historic town in the area has always been recognized as a center of viticulture from the Bronze Age to the present day.

The vineyards are spread over 12 hectares and divided into 16 small plots on different hills with steep slopes and with very different soils depending on the altitude. The decision to have small different plots, located in different hilly areas, allows to obtain grapes with different characteristics and all this will have a very positive influence on the final wine.

The Marchiori family has always followed two very important themes, the quality of the products and bringing back the ancient varieties for Prosecco.

The quality is maintained by keeping all the production phases under control and producing a limited number of bottles, about 45,000 per year, a number extremely small if you want to compare with the large mass production of Prosecco. Moreover, the company is completely followed by the family using all the passion and love for the territory and the wine; the hard work in the vineyard is done manually and takes about 700 hours a year for each hectare. The great knowledge and dedication of the company lead to the indisputable quality and genuineness of their wines.

The other challenge of the family was to use the 5 traditional varieties for the production of Prosecco wine, this choice distinguishes and characterizes them. Generally, Prosecco is produced only with Glera Tonda grapes as it produces more quantity and is more resistant. However, other varieties have always been present in traditional blendings, such as Glera Lunga, Perera, Bianchetta, and Verdiso. This is how their wines called “The 5 Varieties” are born, the use of different grapes characterizes the final wines, creating very interesting and territorial wines. 

The "Rocciamadre" is a wine produced by them where the importance and the characteristic of the soil from which it comes are highlighted, then follows the "Prologo" in an Extra Dry version instead "Integrale" represents the ancient ancestral method for the production of sparkling wines. The last wine they produce is called "Rivelazione", this wine comes from a particular and specific vineyard, called in the area "Rive", which is a particular vineyard that demonstrates a unique quality and is only 43 officially recognized. Their wine comes from the “Rive di Farra di Soligo” vineyard and amply expresses its territoriality.
