Le Colture debuts at VINEXPO 2019

Le Colture is ready to live an important new debut, joining for the first time the exhibitors of the coming Vinexpo edition. The Ruggeri family is proud to present you their most representative wines at the Conegliano Valdobbiadene DOCG Consortium boots in Hall 1 CD75: Valdobbiadene DOCG Superiore di Cartizze, Valdobbiadene DOCG Extra Dry, Valdobbiadene DOCG brut ‘Fagher’.
“We are experiencing a moment of significant evolution – commented Alberto and Veronica Ruggeri – that sees us more and more protagonists on international scenarios. For some time now we have been working in foreign markets, some of which are happily consolidating, and for us this is a continuous challenge to confront ourselves on new territories, open to meet a different audience of future wine lovers, to whom we firstly aim to tell our story, which is worth knowing to fully appreciate our wines ”.

Le Colture is a wine company strongly linked to its territory, the Valdobbiadene DOCG, and which sums up in itself the deep meaning of living and cultivating the vine on this land. With its 40 hectares of direct ownership, it has been present in the territory since 1983, but its cornerstone lies in being above all a family, which every day of the year commits itself to enhancing the Prosecco Superiore di Valdobbiadene DOCG. Cesare Ruggeri, father of Silvia, Alberto and Veronica, is Le Colture’s intuitive mind, the true “vigneron” and it’s thanks to him if today we produce 800.000 bottles per year. At the end of the 80s he understood the potential and the strength of Prosecco Superiore and it was then that a small farm made up of a few cows began its transformation; starting from the ’90s with lots of sacrifices Cesare bought some land so as to make Le Colture evolve in a company with a complete production chain, but above all self-sufficient with its own grapes.

“The Prosecco Superiore is an immediate wine – continues Veronica Ruggeri – so over the years our primary purpose has always been to bring home healthy grapes that we follow scrupulously and with extreme care in their growth. Each of us is a part of this reality, starting from our mother Bianca, pillar of this company together with our father Cesare, up to us three brothers, Silvia, Alberto and myself. With our sparkling wines we communicate with passion and authenticity our life, our land and our history into the world. “
