On the hillsides of Valdobbiadene, wine-growing is called “Heroic Viticulture” for quite an evident reason. Winegrowers have to deal with steeply sloped hills, some achieving 50°. They are called “Rive”, in the local dialect. Here every single operation regarding the cultivation and harvesting of grapes is performed manually. Drusian Rive di Santo Stefano is made from 100% Glera grapes, grown and hand-picked in the vineyard of Santo Stefano. It is a small area, on the top of the hill, close to Valdobbiadene.
Here vines are between 30 and 50-year-old. Thanks to their biological inheritance and the features of the terroir where they grow, these grapes have a unique and intense aromatic profile, with enchanting perfumes and flavors to discover in the glass.
