Prosecco is produced using a grape variety called Glera, a grape with history dating back to the Roman times. In dedication to those Glera guzzling Romans Divici produced a Prosecco that’s got Roman numerals in the name (DIVICI) and a fancy bottle design depicting ancient Roman columns.
Botter was founded by Carlo Botter and his wife Maria in 1928 in Fossalta di Piave, a small town near Venice. It started off as a small business selling local wines in barrels and demijohns.
In the ‘60s the two sons, Arnaldo and Enzo, joined the Company and began to sell wine in bottles. They boosted the Company’s presence on the Italian market and – most importantly – gave life to a gradual process of expansion throughout other countries, which would then turn into the Company’s main source of income.
In the ‘70s Botter was able to keep up with the growing International market and expand its range. Some of its Veneto wines came from the family vineyards, located near Treviso.
In the ’80s, thanks to various close collaborations with local producers, Botter began providing new wines from Abruzzo, Campania, Puglia and Sicily, offering a wide range of products made with grapes from native vines; this was only the starting point of Botter multi-territorial approach that would later develop and spread across the country, from Northern to Southern Italy.
At the end of the 90s, the third generation - Annalisa, Alessandro and Luca - entered the Company and Botter started witnessing a further evolution.
A brand-new business model was adopted, more suited to the needs of a dynamic and global market.
Today Botter is one of the largest producers and exporters of Italian wines: 1 out of 35 bottles of Italian wine exported to the world is produced by Botter.
The company's goal is always the customers satisfaction obtained through the quality and consistency of the products, the efficiency of the service, the flexibility of the production, the deep knowledge of the markets.
