The grapes are grown over thin calcareous marl soil between 200 to 248 metres above sea level. The slopes are facing south-west and west which allows the grapes to obtain maximum ripeness during the summer. All the grapes were hand- harvested and selected on a sorting table. Fermentation is with the indigenous yeast in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks and aged in there for five months. The wine comes in a special wooden box.
This unique wine is the only single-variety Perera being produced commercially. It has aromas of pear, rose, candied citrus notes and white pepper. It has a mineral back palate. Only one bottle available.

This is an excellent wine with oven-baked white fish or with steamed abalone and mussels.
About the Perera grape from Italy Abroad
The grape Perera is known in the area of Valdobbiadene also as “Pevarise”. Once it was a very present variety in this area, especially in Santo Stefano and San Pietro di Barbozza and particularly sought after for the quality of its berries. The name is probably due to the particular taste (pear) of the berry pulp, or the shape that recalls an inverted pear. The Perera vine was particularly hit by the advent of phylloxera, as to practically disappear.
Rediscovered, the vine Perera is mostly vinified in blends with Verdiso and Glera in the DOC and DOCG appellations of Prosecco wine. The berry is white, medium, spheroid with very waxy, yellow-golden skin. The bunch is medium to large, conical or pyramidal, with one or two wings, medium compact with a medium-large, pentagonal, three-lobed leaf. The Perera vine has considerable vigor and time of late ripening. Its production is not very regular because of its sensitivity to millerandage. The Perera vine gives a straw yellow colour with golden highlights. The scent is fruity and intense, fruity in the mouth, full and harmonious.
