Eli Spagnol, with the help of his wife and daughters and son-in-law, utilizes his thirty-plus years of experience, his love for the land and his profound passion for his work, to obtain fine sparkling wines from the region of Valdobbiadene. The family’s strong passion for terroir, their respect for nature, values and traditions, and with the help of new enological technologies, ensure their success in making true Prosecco wine at Tenuta Torre Zecchei.
In 2006 they built a new state-of-the-art winery at the foot of the Valdobbiadene hills for the production of their artisan Prosecco wines. In 2011 they installed a photovoltaic and solar system, to guarantee the electricity and hot water requirements of the winery.
They follow each phase of the production personally: from the work in the vineyards, to the hand collected grape harvest, the wine making, the sparkling fermentation process, the bottling and packaging, and the direct selling to the final customer. This family union and harmony is their strength.
Torre Zecchei wines are characterized by a great freshness, are smooth and easy to drink, and are able to excite and satisfy everyone.
Location of the Vineyards
Valdobbiadene, “the land of vines and wine” is considered the best growing sub-region for Glera (Prosecco) grapes. The Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore D.O.C.G. lies in the Veneto region, 50 km north of Venice, in the hilly strip of the Province of Treviso lying near the small town of Valdobbiadene. It is equidistant from the Dolomite Mountains and the Adriatic Sea, a situation that has a really positive effect on the climate. Tenuta Torre Zecchei vineyards are planted in the foothills, where Prosecco has been produced for over 10 centuries. This region is comprised of 15 communes with only 11,000 acres of vineyards that are entered into the official D.O.C.G. register. The landscape is unique in the world.
Great wines take time. Longer, slower second fermentation in the autoclaves produces prosecco wines with more elegance and smaller more fine bubbles.
