More than one thousand years ago, in A.D. 958 or 959, the Italian King Berengario II gave to Rambaldo,
ancestor of the Collalto family, the area called Corte Lovadina. The Collalto family still owns land in
Susegana in the province of Treviso. Approximately 160 acres are planted in the Valdobbiadene
Prosecco Superiore region with vineyards located between Susegana and Collalto. The vines are
planted on a steep south-southeast facing slope between 150-1500 feet. The soils are mainly calcareous
and clay. The Valdobbiadene Superiore Brut and Extra Dry are made from select grapes, harvested early
and fermented at low temperature in stainless steel tanks to enhance delicacy and acidity. Lampo is
produced using grapes from Treviso and Valdobbiadene. Following a second fermentation using the
Charmat method, the wine is filtered to separate the yeasts prior top bottling. Borgoluce is firmly rooted in
sustainable farming methods. This means limiting environmental impact and reducing the use of
