Keeping Tradition Alive with Modern Winemaking
Founded more than 40 years ago, La Marca® is a winery cooperative representing over 5,000 winegrowers who farm over 17,000 acres in the area of Treviso, in the Veneto region of northern Italy. The name “La Marca” refers to the zone of La Marca Trevigiana, source for the winery’s finest grapes. The winery’s headquarters are in the city of Oderzo, in the heart of Prosecco country. Consulting winemaker for La Marca® Prosecco is Fabrizo Gatto.
Tradition at La Marca® runs hand in hand with modern winemaking techniques, all with an eye to the changing demands of the international market for wine.
La Marca® is particularly proud of its fully sparkling Prosecco Spumante. Prosecco has been taking the international wine drinking public by storm. La Marca®’s Prosecco is a delicious, fragrant and fruity wine that is winning hearts and palates wherever sparkling wines are consumed.
Though relatively new to the international market, Prosecco production reflects a long history of painstaking grape growing and winemaking in its unique region.
The hills of Treviso provide unique soils and microclimates that are perfect for the Prosecco grape (the grape and the wine have the same name). La Marca® adds to that perfection by expertly creating the base wines for their Prosecco and then gently adding effervescence through the Charmat process, the ideal way to protect the wine’s delicate aromatics and delightfully light texture. La Marca® Prosecco is a versatile sparkler, a delight on its own as an aperitif, and for any (and every) special occasion. The wine has the substance and energetic acidity to match a wide range of foods and cuisines: Italian of course, but try it with Thai cuisine, a solid American barbecue, or light appetizers.
Although sold under a single brand, La Marca® Prosecco represents the work, the skill, and the traditions of literally thousands of Italian winegrowers and wine workers who remain dedicated to upholding the traditions and quality standards of their region’s own unique wine.
Light, lively and lovely, all that bubbles need not be Champagne and here is a perfect alternative. Paired with Asian, Indian, meat, fish or solo, we liked La Marca Prosecco a lot. And at $17.00 SRP, the value is there.
