COMPANY PROFILE Le Vigne de Alice is located in the north-east of Conegliano Valdobbiadene with the Belluno Dolomites rising a few kilometres to the north and Venice lying just a handful of kilometres to the south.
Cinzia Canzian is the owner. La vita è una bollicina’ (life is a bubble) says Cinzia, a phrase coined as a sort of modern carpe diem that guides her in her professional work and life and the fact that she can’t conceive of a life without bubbles (and frankly, who can?). Indeed, starting out as a wine producer in 2005, she has always produced only sparkling wines in a substantial range that includes bubbles made in the typical Prosecco charmat method, but also classic and ancestral method fizz. For Cinzia, life is not just one but a never-ending stream of bubbles. Restricting products to those approved in the Viticultural Protocol, respect for the environment is at the heart of Cinzia’s philosophy. She does not use weed-killers, mowing for weed removal, allowing a natural cover crop, using composted manure, green manuring and organic preparations against pests and diseases. Large areas of woodland are preserved on the property to encourage biodiversity and recycling of bottles and packaging materials from renewable sources is an article of faith. Almost all electricity comes from solar panels. In the cellar, ambient yeasts are used for the semi-sparkling and sparkling wines for the initial fermentation and cultured ambient yeasts for the secondary fermentation.
