"The Perlage brand is synonymous with elegant and good quality organic wines, with good business practices and the passion of its people. It's as respectful of its origins as it is of its future, following a path created by people, stories, the interweaving of vines and lives, buds and mature fruits, discoveries and rediscoveries, research and creativity. It's the harmony of these elements that Perlage recreates in its organic Prosecco wines, balancing the color of purity, the aroma of tradition and the flavor of quality."

Perlage began in 1985 with the founding of the Riva Moretta vineyard in the heart of the Valdobbiadene Prosecco DOCG area. The seven Nardi brothers were encouraged by parents Tiziano and Afra to pursue organic agriculture. They would go on to create one of the first Italian organic sparkling wineries.
All these years later, Perlage cultivates extensive organic vineyards featuring varieties such as Glera, Pinot Grigio, Sangiovese, Primitivo, and Falanghina. They specialize in Biodynamic viticulture, utilizing techniques such as: permanent grass cover which adapts to different climactic conditions and helps protect the fertility of the soil, fostering useful microorganisms, and increasing organic matter in the soil. The steep sloping landscape of the Veneto Region makes it difficult to mechanize work, ensuring personal attention to detail and reflective of the strong bond between land and farmer.
Perlage has a strong sense of responsibility: to the land, its workers, and consumers - emphasized by their new status as a Certified B Corportation. Their wines reflect the balance of their process, interweaving vines and lives, buds and mature fruits, research and creativity.
