With Prosecco being such a well-established wine style it was a task to find a
producer that brought something special to the table for us in Alberta. The result of our search is Mongarda. A family owned estate since 1978 with some vineyard sites as steep and elevated as the Mosel. Some vines approaching 70 years of age, farmed with no pesticides, weed killers, or synthetic fertilizers. Hand harvested, manually tended, with spontaneous first fermentations.
This is real wine in a category flooded with mass-production, diluted, and uninteresting bubbles. A dedication to the regions tradition and return to quality over quantity. Genuine people, genuine vino. 30,000 bottle total production!!!
