  • Introduction

    • The Jeio line is inspired by the influential Desiderio Bisol, whose wife lovingly referred to him as Jeio. The grandfather of the current owners, Desiderio was dedicated to product quality, acquiring only the steepest plots. While considerably more difficult to work, these plots are ideal for vine cultivation. As a result of his vision, the Glera cultivated in these vineyards is especially rich in malic acid, making the final wine more dynamic and evolved. Only the best Glera grapes are selected from Bisol’s 35 plots in Valdobbiadene to make the highly aromatic Jeio Brut.

  • Tasting Notes

    • “The Jeio Prosecco Superiore NV has bright aromas of fresh green apple, with notes of citrus fruit, peach, apricot, and banana. White flowers and vegetal notes of freshly cut grass complement the spicy finish. Dry with a consistent body, this wine is elegant, fresh, and crispy, but not light.” — Gianluca Bisol, President & CEO

    All credit to Bisol for this organic wine, which offers a pure, elegant example of delicately sparkling Glera. Classic scents of apple, nectarine, florals - and is there even a hint of orange peel in there? Who cares, it's a bloody good drink.

    Creamy, racy and fun, this offers inviting aromas of green apple, wisteria and aromatic herb. The vibrant palate delivers Bartlett pear, citrus and thyme accompanied by an elegant, continuous mousse. It has a crisp, dry close.
