  • Introduction

    • “Crede” is a dialect word for clay, a defining feature of the terrain in Valdobbiadene in which the grapes for this Prosecco Superiore are cultivated. Clay is one of the five types of soil in the Bisol’s vineyards in Valdobbiadene. Crede is always a vintage expression and all fruit is sourced from the Bisol’s own estate.

  • Vintage Report

    • The 2019 harvest is the first to see the application of the modifications in the production regulations. The objective was to underline the worth of the Rive category, recognising the superior quality of the grapes from very steep vineyards, but also to safeguard a link with local tradition with the introduction of the “sui lieviti” style of sparkling wines. Lastly, with “Extra Brut” we wanted to get closer to contemporary tastes.
