Cielo e Terra, Italy

Cielo e Terra is a joint venture between two families, Cielo, who have been making wine in the Veneto for over a century, and the Cantina Sociale Colli Berici.

Drawing on the Colli Berici's vineyard resources, combined with the Cielo family's winemaking skills, their partnership consistently produces wines which are fantastic value for money from both indigenous and international varietals.

Viticulture

Individual vine-growers contribute their grapes to the wineries based on personal cards recording all identification data of the production areas. During vintage, the agronomist in charge verifies the extent of maturation of the grapes and establishes vintage timing accordingly. Upon arrival at the winery, grapes are selected by type, area of origin and sugar content, as these indications are fundamental to determine the wine quality potential. Each bunch is trimmed to increase concentration, grapes are hand picked.

Winemaking

Modern temperature controlled fermentation ensures all the bright fresh fruit flavours of the grapes are preserved and transferred into the eventual wine.
