History

  • “Soffio” if the Italian word for “blow” or “breath”. “Soffio” expresses the spirit of Prosecco that made its fortune all over the world. It toasts to the levity of souls, to the cheerfulness of a simple life, to the joy of the friendship and to all ephemeral happy occasions. Moments to be enjoyed in one instant, like a pure blow of life.

Regional Information

  • Prosecco is produced exclusively in the neighboring Italian regions of Veneto and Friuli-Venezia Giulia in north-eastern Italy. Situated in between the Dolomite mountain range and the warm, Adriatic sea, the Prosecco region enjoys a mild microclimate with generous rainfall and sunshine. The exact soil type here varies between vineyards, but is generally a mixture of limestone, clay and marine sandstone. When coupled with the temperate climate, these soil conditions make this region ideal for cultivating Prosecco's Glera grape.
