Nature and love for the Prosecco di Valdobbiadene hills – World Heritage Site

La Tordera is in the hills of Valdobbiadene, the heart of the Valdobbiadene Superiore DOCG appellation, between Venice and the Dolomites. Here, for over a century, the Vettoretti family has been transforming the grapes from the 70 hectares of family-owned vineyards into elegant and esteemed sparkling wines among which Superiore di Cartizze DOCG, Valdobbiadene DOCG, Asolo Prosecco Superiore DOCG e Prosecco Doc Treviso. Every production phase of the La Tordera wines takes place in the modern, CasaClima Wine certified winery.

Nature in the Natural Balance company philosophy

The company journey taken on at the behest of the Vettoretti family can be identified in the “Natural Balance” concept which enhances the company’s commitment to production processes that respect the territory and that is a true expression of the essence of the grapes and the diversity of each single family-owned vineyard in the Cartizze, Valdobbiadene, Asolo and Prosecco Doc areas. The basis of the Natural Balance philosophy, created by the Vettoretti family, composed of Renato, Gabriella, Paolo and their parents Mirella and Pietro, is the constant search the “natural” balance between work, care for the land and its fruits and respect for people and future generations.

Natural Balance stands for the continuous search for sustainability in a closed circuit from the cultivation practices in the vineyard to the production of all our bottles, to the selection of materials used for our packaging, to the company building we work in every day. Our commitment shows through a series of practices which influence every aspect of the winery and whose goal is a “greener” winegrowing process and environmentally sustainable harmony. Every step taken is completely supervised by the Vettoretti family, a closed circuit that we wanted to represent with the graphic symbol of the circle next to Natural Balance. All the bottles have a stamp with the saying Natural Balance on the neck; on the back label there is not only legal information, but also other information like the sulphite and sugar content.

Nature meets architecture in the first CasaClima Wine certified winery in Veneto

La Tordera winery is the result of the bond between land, nature and function. Starting with the design of the winery with the use of eco-sustainable materials and practices, it was designed to synergistically use different energy sources, water, wood, thermal and solar energy, with a view to save energy. As of today, it is the first and only winery in Veneto to have been awarded the CasaClima Wine certification in 2018.
