About
Introduced by the Romans, vines at Il Follo have been cultivated in Treviso for centuries. In 1772 a vine named Prosecco was first identified in the area. Until 2009, the vine and the wine were synonymous, but the grape variety is now referred to as Glera. They account for 85 percent of a Prosecco blend, and Verdiso, Perera, Bianchetta, Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio may alone or together account for the rest.

After many generations, Vittorio Follador, his son Luca, and his daughters Maria and Marta share management of the estate.
