In 2000, near Collalto, in the town of Pedrè-Doline, husband and wife team Benedetto and Clotilde Ricci began creating Valdellövo. Benedetto was born and raised in these hills, and has inherited a passion for vine and wine. His grandfather Bepi created the famous “Strada del Vino Bianco”, the road which even today takes thousands of wine enthusiasts from Valdobbiadene to Conegliano, the prosecco heartland and protected denomination (docg). His father Romano Ricci studied at the prestigious School of Oenology in Conegliano and went on to practice viticulture. Now Benedetto is following in their footsteps, and is quickly making his mark in the world of prosecco. In their small vineyard, which has 2 hectares of its original 60 year old vines, Valdellövo offers wines produced only from its own grapes. In recent years, 8 additional hectares of vineyards have been planted. Thanks to the passion, but above all to the professional skills of Benedetto, Valdellövo creates prosecco wines of great quality that achieve excellent results.
