La PriaWinery is a young company, started in 2001 but born from the experience of generations of winemakers. The whole production area consists of about 15 hectares of vineyard. The land is located in the territory of Alonte in the southern part of the Berici, Vicenza. More text...
Hence the choice of Glera Balbi, the ancient primitive strain of Prosecco, which has found a ground and an environment for the growth and production of grapes extremely suitable for sparkling wine.
The recovery of historical documents that prove the existence of Prosecco in the Berici Hills, convinced us that it would be proper to resume the history and tradition with a clutch of new viticultural techniques, with planting renewed. Close

The Glera grapes, the original source of Prosecco, appears to have originated in the Berici Hills. So says “Il Roccolo”, a document written by Aureliano Acanti in 1754 for the wedding of Elena Ghellini, daughter of Count Gelio Ghellini Villaverla (Vicenza province). More text...
The Roccolo is one of the most important books in the history of Italian wines and probably the most important of Veneto wines, where is mentioned among others, the Prosecco of Monteberico. Acanti’s is the oldest written record of Proseccoand shows the rich cultural backdrop of our company, La Pria. Close
We aimed at bringing our grape variety back to its origin, strongly believing in its potential. Thanks to the junction of new viticultural techniques, with planting renewed and oenological practices of high quality, we produce a Prosecco out of the ordinary. More text...
Our ambition is to connect the past to the future and to recover the original value of wine. Let us call it our mission
Haveyou ever wondered why Prosecco wines are all quite alike?
Our enterprise began precisely with the desire to do something different.
Fed up with common Prosecco wines and with all their similar tastes we resolved to create La Pria wine with the special purpose of inventing, or rather reinventing, an exclusive savour for this wine so much dear to local tradition.
To do this our starting point has been once again an historical heritage, something connected to our origin, that is our terroir: a soil located South of Vicenza, in Berici Hills, that gives thanks to its extraordinary mineral components the characteristic strong taste peculiar to our Prosecco wine, unique in comparison with other Prosecco wines. What is our exclusive trademark? It’s our slightly bitter aftertaste combined with a pleasant salt-flavorthat delights the palate like a sudden intuition. Close
The profession of winemaker is to work with the utmost respect of living organisms of nature in the countryside and to deal with the sensitive ecological balance of plants, micro-organisms and insects of the eco system. More text...
This philosophy implies that our interventions vineyard minimized and only treatments with copper sulphate and sulfur as fungicides.
The “make organic” requires commitment and dedication.
It needs more manpower, we must exclude the use of chemical fertilizers, insecticides and herbicides, but the result is unique: no filter between nature and finished product.
Our company has always operated according to this logic. Prosecco La Pria has, in fact, been certified as organic wine,easily recognizable thanks to the label of the green leaf, European symbol reserved for organic products.
We also obtained the severe Certification “Biodiversity Friend” for the conservation of air, water and soil quality, as an additional proof of our environmental responsibility and of our minimizing impacts of productive process on ecosystems.
Strongly believing in this sustainable project, we recently became a partner member of FIVI, the Italian Federation of Independent Winegrowers, that promotes the quality and authenticity of Italian wines.
Membershipis restricted only to those wineries that carry out all the function of the vineyard management up to the grape harvest, of transformation of the grapes harvested in the vineyard into wine and of direct selling of the products obtained. Close
Alonte, Berici Hills south of Vicenza, Veneto, Italy. Hills predominantly composed of limestone rock formed by an ancient sea and emerged via volcanic activity. Thin soils, fine texture, coarse gravel sparse on the surface, common at depth and good drainage. More text...
The Berici Hills and in particular the southern area of Alonte are one of the most interesting crus for wines of the whole district. The medium-textured soils are rich in clay and limestone from fossil deposits with the presence also of volcanic material. A wonderful mix that enriches the mineral component and favours the production of particularly fine wines because of the limestone component, and full-bodied because of the basalt clay component.
