• Where in Sydney and across Australia you can order your bottles.
True Italian Prosecco
Prosecco is made from the glera grape variety which originated in the town (fittingly named) Prosecco in Trieste, Italy(*1,2). A true Prosecco consists of at least 85% glera grapes grown in the Prosecco region of north-eastern Italy. Common growing regions include Friuli Venezia Giulia and Veneto(*1). A Prosecco with less than 85% glera is considered a sparkling white wine rather than a Prosecco(*1). When buying Prosecco, look for wines made in the Italian Prosecco growing region or the labels DOC or DOCG. These labels guarantee the wine was made with genuine Italian grown glera grapes(*1).
Santero’s Villa Jolanda Extra Dry Prosecco
Santero’s state-of-the-art factory produces 20 million bottles per year to fill the worldwide demand for this iconic wine(*3). Grapes are harvested from 60 hectares of family-owned vineyards in Veneto(*4). In addition, they also source grapes from 300 other well-established vineyards in the region(*4,5). The most fragrant Prosecco comes from glera grape varieties planted on sunny slopes with controlled yields(*2). Well-watered clay soils rich in limestone produce ideal fruits(*2,4).
The quality of Villa Jolanda Prosecco is unmistakable. Santero’s Villa Jolanda is classed as a coming from a ‘Controlled Destination of Origin’ (DOC). Prosecco with these labels means it is guaranteed to have been made from the traditional Prosecco growing vineyards of Italy(*1).
A Taste of the Luxurious, Affordable Villa Jolanda (Extra Dry) Prosecco
Prosecco can be quite fruity however this bottle is very dry and crisp with minimal sweetness(*3). Villa Jolanda’s Prosecco is cool-fermented in stainless steel tanks.

Palate: Light and balanced with a crisp finish.
