The terroir that makes Bacio della Luna wines unique is located fifty kilometers from Venice, in the province of Treviso, halfway between the two towns of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene. This terroir, perfect for vineyards, is where the varietal Glera, once called Prosecco, offers its best expression. Every hill has a different soil composition and this is why every grape gives different flavors and different scents to the wine.
The raising of the sea bottom and the repositioning of the dolomitic glaciers of the tertiary period, gave origin to the characteristics of the terroir in the area of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene. Conglomerates of rocks and sand, rich in clay with yellow-light blue marns and grey-cerulean sandstone, represent the perfect physical-chemical combination to grow grapes rich in scents.
The hills, located between the river Meschio on the east and the Piave on the west, are divided into two districts: on the east the District of Conegliano (Conegliano, Carpesica, Ogliano, Feletto, Refrontolo, Susegana, Solighetto and Pieve di Soligo); on the west the District of Valdobbiadene (Valdobbiadene, Combai, Miane, Farra di Soligo, Soligo, Col S.Martino and Vidor).
Especially, the hills from Valdobbiadene down to Vidor, recognizable by their high slope, boast different characteristics due to the alternate presence of drumlin deposits, alluvial terraces and conoid deposits, all elements that donate different nuances to the grapes. In the heart of the DOCG area is located the exclusive area of the Cartizze: 107 hectares that twist and turn in the communities of Saccol, Santo Stefano and San Pietro di Barbozza. This cru, best expression of the DOCG appellation, comes from vineyards that grow on an ancient and rock terrior, characterized by the presence of moraine, sandstones and clay, that enable a fast drainage of the rain and a constant reserve of water. The soft microclimate of this area, combined with the structure of the soil, allows a balanced growth of the vineyards and a slow maturation of the grapes: this donates the Cartizze those unique scents that make it an outstanding wine.
The area, nestled between the Dolomites and the Adriatic, is characterized by a mild and favorable climate. Great scents and aromas due to the temperature excursion during day and night, favored by the adjacent mountains.
Vineyards in this area are grown at an altitude between 50 and 500 meters a.s.l. in the most sunny side of the hills. These hills, steep and arduous, not easy to cultivate, represent a unique scenario, created by the agronomists of this area who take care of each hectare, whose slope impose the traditional hand work. 5.000 hectares of vineyards, with an average annual production of 43.000 tons of grapes.
