As well as being a gifted Winemaker, Federico Giotto has a devilish sense of humour.

For this particular page in The Prosecco Diaries we spend some time inside the mind of one of the more colourful characters of Veneto, famed consulting Winemaker Federico Giotto. He is a truly fascinating character, and his enthusiasm and passion are undeniably infectious… a real romantic pragmatist, if ever there were one.

We spent an afternoon with him at Sorelle Bronca, just one of the many, many spots where he consults. Following our video is a fascinating short film where Federico speaks to ‘the ingredients of wine”.
