The Asolo Prosecco DOCG zone (Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita) is a narrow area within the province of Treviso, lying between the Asolo and Montello hills. The DOCG denomination certifies the origin of the grapes and the superior quality of the wine.
Elis enjoys the Asolo Prosecco Superiore DOCG denomination, satisfying the high quality standards set by the strict product requirement. The limited grape production per hectare makes Elis Asolo Prosecco Superiore DOCG a niche product.
The 'Terra dei Case' Vineyard
We cultivate our own vineyards, located in the Asolo Prosecco DOCG territory. Our best vineyard –Terra dei Case– sits at the foot of Asolo mediaeval Fortress. The 70 lines of glera double-arched cane grapevines bask in the sun enjoying its warmth. The medium-textured arenaceous soil brings to the grapes rich flavor, fragrance and adequate acidity.
Thanks to its particular latitude, Asolo enjoys a mild climate. The ideal sunlight exposure and natural water supply ensure an optimal microclimate for vines and a gradual ripening process. The excellent day-night temperature range, given by the proximity to the Grappa Massif, enhances grapes’ aroma and provides a suitable natural acidity.
We see grapevine cultivation as means to maintain the environmental eco-system giving special attention to bees and other pollinators. This special care to the environment is translated into the ultimate attention to the well-being of human beings, which represents the fundamental principle of our company ELIS.
Based on this philosophy, we have substantially invested on advanced machines. All phytoiatric treatments are carried out through a tunnel recycling sprayer, which ensures 40% reduction in products used and 95% reduction in airborne drift and soil contamination. Soil fertilization uses only organic substance, namely manure, every 4-5 years to prevent water eutrophication and to eventually obtain better grape quality.
