The distinctly Italian know-how of Desiderio Bisol meets cosmopolitan spontaneity and informality.Enter The Terroir
Jeio Extra Dry is produced with grapes from various vineyards in the “DOCG Conegliano Valdobbiadene” territory. An elegant wine, it achieves a perfect balance of flavour and aromatics. Ideal as an aperitif, it also makes a delicious pairing for lighter fish or vegetable dishes.
The etymology of the word aperitivo derives from the Latin aperitivus, meaning “to open”. A drink able to stimulate and, therefore, to "open" the appetite.
When the Habsburg empire occupied the Veneto, the Austrian soldiers used to order in the osterie shouting: "Spritzen!", which means to spray, referring to the addition of water necessary to make lighter the wine. In this way Spritz was born!
Aperitivo is not synonymous with Happy Hour. The traditional ritual is in fact preparatory to dinner and it’s enjoyed before sitting at the table between 6 pm and 8 pm.
It’s a good habit to accompany a good glass of wine with inviting canapés, finger food or olives, which have the task of whetting the appetite before dinner.
