The grapes grown on the southernmost part of the hill, which were picked later than the others to obtain higher sugar levels, yielded a magnificent, richly-fruited Prosecco, which was particularly enjoyed by the dame, the ladies of the Castle, who loved sipping it during the long summer afternoons, accompanied by petits fours or a galette, along a fresh stracchino cheese made of milk from cows pastured on local grasses. This is the reason why we named our Dry Prosecco Dame, as an homage to the ladies of yesteryear and to those of today.
