Squeezing in the square of the best bunches of Vespaiola grape, dry, to produce the Torcolato, is time of great celebration in Breganze Torcolato since the institution of a Doc wine (17 years ago), which this year will take place on 15 January (giorno del mio compleanno 😉 ).
But what is the "first Torcolato"? The "first" wine is obtained from the Union of clusters of all producers of local DOC Torcolato Breganze, at the foot of the Alps of Vicenza. The Torcolato of "before" is therefore an absolutely unique dessert wine, not for sale; After two years of maturation Torcolato bottles of "before" are given partly to the participants in the feast in his honor and in part to charity.
Commissioned by producers of Torcolato, the "before the Torcolato" became unmissable appointment for the public and as a tradition the Torcolato of the harvest 2011 will be squeezed, After the canons 3 months of withering, at the beginning of 2012 and will be marketed by 31 December 2013. It's over the years that pass between the grape harvest and the finished product that the wine is "pulled a shiny" breganzesi cellars, acquiring the refined bouquet and maturing the inimitable sensory Kit, to give them as a gift to the lucky taster so you win on the field as "Oro di Breganze".
«The Torcolato – says Fausto Maculan, President Torcolato road – is the birthday party of us producers for our wine flag. Torcolato is the product that requires more work and love, from the vineyard to the cellar, work and love are given without any economy. For this reason we invite everyone to share with us the joy of squeezing of Vespaiola withered grapes, that will do it all together in an ancient olive press, mounted for the occasion on stage of the Central Plaza of Breganze. Also this year – concludes the President – the country and the area will give the best, with the product market of the Pedemontana vicentina, reenactments of ancient crafts, breathtaking visits to our Bell Tower and, absolute innovation for the 2012, the special opening in the morning of the cellars of Breganze Doc for tastings and visits».
