La Jara | Venetien



The vernacular refers to the white, often almost circular limestones as 'La Jara'. These pebbles have been transported by the Piave River for centuries to the area around Conegliano and Valdobbiadene. They can be found everywhere in the riverbed and on the banks of the Piave - which crosses this part of the Veneto. The pebbles also form the valuable base of the vineyard soils and have valuable characteristics for the cultivation of the Prosecco vine:

They store the heat of the day and slowly release it to the vines at night. This promotes the ripening of the grapes and moderates the cold air currents from the nearby Alpine valleys. An ideal microclimate for growing grapes for fresh Prosecco. La Jara is located on the foothills of the hills around Conegliano and Valdobbiadene, near the famous river island 'Grave di Papadopoli', in the middle of the vineyards that stretch to the banks of the Piave River. The Marion family, the owners, has been growing grapes here since 1891. Since 1990, Massimo and his brother Paolo have continued their parents' business with fresh vigor. The character of the terroir is best expressed by the old-established grape varieties. The result of careful selection in the vineyard and clean vinification in the ultra-modern cellar are sparkling wines with personality and finesse, characterized by a floral, mineral note typical of the terroir. All La Jara wines are characterized by a flawless, radiant clarity. - Gerardo [TS06/22]

Blog: La Jara

La Jara | Venetien | gerardo.de

In dialect the white and calcareous pebbles that characterize the area of Santa Maria del Piave are called 'La Jara'. The winery is located a few kilometers south of Conegliano, the center of Prosecco. The rivers from the Dolomites transported the pebbles and the alluvium to the landscape north of Venice over thousands of years. Beneath the pebbles is a fertile layer of soil, sandy and calcareous. These soil characteristics are excellent for viticulture, if man knows how to handle them properly. The white pebbles store the heat of the day and slowly release it at night, which is an important condition for the production of fresh, fragrant wines. In particular, for the wine from the Prosecco grape, the freshness, the floraky bouquet and a delicate, harmonious note are of great importance.

The winery La Jara has been owned by the Marion family since 1891, meanwhile it has shrunk to 40 hectares due to the division of the inheritance. Since 1990 it has been managed with great dedication by the brothers Massimo and Paolo. The two winemakers complement each other very well in the vineyard and cellar work. An important concern of the family is the selection of the old vines to preserve the local clones, as they are more resistant to the countless vine diseases. In the vineyards is worked very carefully by conviction, the use of artificial fertilizers and chemicals are taboo. The fertilization of the vineyards is done in a unique way. We have a contract with a cattle farm for the purchase of cattle manure, because perfect fertilizer is a rare commodity. Even the construction of a modern and technologically advanced wine cellar does not leave out the idea of quality, as can be seen during a visit to the winery. It is also noteworthy that the entire grape harvest and pressing of the winery is done in just one day.

Care is taken to ensure homogeneous grapes with the correct degree of ripeness, which are immediately destemmed, gently pressed and sent to alcoholic fermentation. A smooth handling of the cellar work ensures the high quality of the grapes. Only a few yeasts, naturally present in the vineyard, allow the must to ferment completely. The must and the young wine are clarified by gravity. In order to ensure a smooth fermentation process and to avoid undesirable aromas, purchased and industrially produced dry yeasts are not used. For this reason, the important wine yeasts are propagated on the winery itself. For the second fermentation, which is traditionally carried out in tanks and lasts several weeks, the winery's own yeasts and sugar are added to the finished base wine. The longer the second fermentation lasts, the finer the perlage and the better the carbonic acid remains bound in the wine. There is no aggressive intervention in the winemaking process and the wine is gently filtered before bottling. In the end, these are all important steps for the quality, integrity and purity of the final product. Conclusion: At La Jara the quality approach applies not only in the vineyard but also in the cellar. - Gerardo [TS06/22]
