After the accurate hand harvest, grapes are pressed and the fermentation starts; the skins are left in the must for a long period to extract flavours and the characteristic thick deep red colour.
Traditional red wine vinification at a controlled temperature between 25 and 27°C.

Botter headquarters are a few kilometres from Venice, in Fossalta di Piave, where the Company was founded.

After the Second World War, Carlo's sons, Arnaldo and Enzo expanded the company and began selling bottled wine. Soon, "Botter" took the leading position in the Italian market and started selling globally.

In 70s, Botter family opened its own production in Motta di Livenza, near Treviso. In 2011,  a new distillery in Divichi, specializing in the production of organic products.
