“Speaking on behalf of everyone at Follador, I want to say what a thrill it was being awarded as the Regional Champion Best Prosecco 2020 by your prestigious jury. A big thank you to Tom Stevenson, Essi Avellan and Simon Stockton, the judges and the team at CSWWC for hosting the event virtually, as wine makers, it does not get better than this. The quality Prosecco sector has developed significantly over the past 10 years, and it is amazing that CSWWC celebrate this, we encourage everyone to discover and enjoy the great wines that are being produced within our Valdobbiadene and Conegliano region, UNESCO World Heritage Site.” Cristina Follador
