Until the last century, before the construction of the present winery, the Counts of Collalto used to make wine from their grapes within the walls of the Castle of San Salvatore.
Already in the Middle Ages they produced red wines to accompany meat and game dishes, and white wines for cheese, vegetable soups and river fish. They then completed the cellar with a sweet and fragrant Prosecco.
With the grapes harvested in the southernmost part of the hill, harvested later than the others in order to obtain a higher concentration of sugars, a sumptuous and intensely fruity Prosecco was obtained, particularly appreciated by the ladies of the castle who used to sorbet it on long summer afternoons accompanied by some biscuits or some biscuits with the milk stracchino of the cows of the county pastures.
For this reason we wanted to call Dame our Dry, a tribute to the Ladies of the past and the Ladies of today.
