Le Vigne di Alice Tasting **SOLD OUT**
**THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT**
There’s prosecco–and there’s Le Vigne di Alice.
Taste the difference with winemaker Cinzia Canzian of Le Vigne di Alice!
Ahh, Prosecco–that cheap-and-cheerful, slightly sweet Italian bubbly you mix with orange juice and grenadine during Sunday brunch, right? Not quite…
While there is a veritable ocean of mass-produced, innocuous Prosecco flooding the market, there are a handful of dedicated, artisanal Prosecco producers who put an incredible amount of craft, care and passion into making world-class sparkling wine from the Glera grape in the foothills of the Dolomite Mountains. These are Prosecchi that not only speak of their mountainous terroir, but that stand toe-to-toe with the finest sparkling wines of the world. Yes, even Champagne.
Le Vigne di Alice is at the forefront of this quality revolution in Prosecco.
Join us to taste the world-class wines of this exciting winery!

About Le Vigne di Alice
Sisters-in-law Cinzia Canzian and Pier Francesca Bonicelli started Alice in 2004 to fulfill their dream of bottling artisanal Prosecco thatʼs all their own: estate fruit, pre-Dolomite, grower Prosecco. They call it Prosecco for non-Prosecco lovers (a category that includes us). Cinzia logged 15 years at her and Francesca’s husbands’ famous winery Bellenda. She also worked at the official Prosecco Consortium of Treviso, an experience that allowed her the rare privilege of years of tasting the range of sparkling wines made by the areaʼs producers. Francesca studied at Italyʼs oldest school of enology in nearby Conegliano; she has vast experience as a local enologist, which is quite different from being an expert Italian enologist. She knows her local grapes and how to vinify and bubble them. Alice, named after Cinziaʼs grandmother, has in just a few years become a rising star.
