Casa Coste Piane is a small estate in Santo Stefano, heart of the Valdobbiadene area. For generations their wine had been sold in bulk but since 1983 they decided to bottle the production themselves. The vineyards lie on slopes close to the cellar. The vines are on average 60 years old (some being pre-phylloxera) and their roots can grow up to 30-40 metres long. This Prosecco is a gem, it is one of the few made in the ancestral method where the second fermentation takes place in the bottle resulting in a naturally sparkling or petillant naturel!

Harvest is usually between the last week of September and the first week of October. In April the wine is bottled without the addition of yeast and sugar, subsequently the indigenous yeast contained in the wine starts a second spontaneous fermentation that lasts for approximately four weeks. After this the wine spends a further four weeks sur lie. The process of disgorgement is not practised and as such the yeasts (lees or lie) are still present in the bottle… any haziness is entirely natural.
