This organic estate nestled in the gentle slopes surrounding the river Piave is distinguished by the soil that lends the estate its name: 'Jara', the gravel lining the riverbed and the surrounding hills. This soil absorbs the warmth of the day, and gently releases it at night, providing a steady transition between day and night for the grapes on the vines. To this phenomenon the estate credits the delicate floral aromas of their Glera (Prosecco) and Pinot Grigio grapes; combined with a dedication to organic viticulture, they make affordable wines of outstanding quality. In their own words: "We like to think that Nature is a perfect mechanism, whom it is our duty to indulge: day-to-day attention to the vineyard renders our grapes - and our wines - truly exceptional." The range consists of Prosecco and Rosato Frizzante, a Spumante Extra Dry, and an almost pearlescent Pinot Grigio Spumante Rosato, that may make you question its 'rosato' status thanks to the barely-blush colour of their gently ripened grapes, but which never fails to delight when poured as an aperitif. They also produce a Pinot Grigio of such delightful character that it restores our faith in the fact that this grape can be used to make characterful wine still worthy of by the glass listings thanks to its reasonable pricetag.
