Veneto – in the heart of Prosecco region
In addition to the romantic and historical charm of Venice, it is the ideal "Terroir" for Prosecco. For centuries it has been and continues to be par excellence the place of provenance of this variety. The Follador production vineyards are located precisely in the center of the Prosecco area.
Three centuries of family history
The Follador winery traces its origins to the 18th century when Giovanni Follador converted his farm into vineyards and in the subsequent years was awarded the Wine Quality Award from the Doge of Venice for his wines. A major turning point for the winery occurred in the mid 20th century when Gianfranco Follador, steered the winery's production toward sparkling wines. As one of the original families in the Valdobbiadene area involved in sparkling production, Gianfranco, along with his wife Italia, have continued a tradition of making high-quality wines which has been passed down to their children Michele, Mariacristina, Francesca and Emanuela.
