Overview of the Wine
Cantina Sorelle Bronca was founded in the mid-eighties by the sisters Antonella and Ersiliana, whose unconditional enthusiasm for the vine had been transmitted to them from childhood by their father Livio.
The path that the sisters had chosen to undertake independently was that of taking care of the vineyard, as they like to call it: an uphill journey that, from perfect “hill” women, they made it by making it an aspiration, a reality full of passion.
Over the years the vineyards have increased, to become sixteen acres today, all owned and located on the green hills above Conegliano and Valdobbiadene, in the province of Treviso. The production area enjoys a climate that takes shape between the Dolomites and the Adriatic Sea, while the Sorelle property extends in full sunlight, looking south and caressed by excellent ventilation.
The slope on which the vineyards grow is very strong, a condition that leads the roots to go deep into the underlying rock and giving their fruits an intense minerality with a low sugar content.
The artisan tradition collected by the sisters has been combined with modern techniques in respect of the environment, thanks to the important contribution of Piero, Antonella's husband, and Elisa, Ersiliana's daughter: the land is left to work naturally, taking care of it manually ... the vineyards they are in the heart of the Sorelle Bronca like beautiful fragrant gardens, where elegant Prosecco of the highest quality bloom lively, savory and harmonious.

Prosecco, Veneto, Italy
Sorelle Bronca changed my expectation of what everyday Prosecco could be ages ago, and I’ve drunk it weekly ever since. Now, perhaps twenty years later, they’ve changed my understanding of how good Prosecco can be absolutely; tasting the new "Particella 181" for the first time was the wine-tasting equivalent of being hit by lightning. It smells like some kind of exalted green apple perfumed with honeysuckle; on the palate the balance of vivid fruit and electric acidity is just perfect; drinking it is such a pleasure. This is one of the best Italian sparkling wines I’ve had, and by far the best Prosecco.
