||Il Follo is a producer of Prosecco established in 1960, owned by the Follador family. The firm takes its name from the hamlet of Follo, nestled at the foot of the hill of Cartizze in the Valdobbiadene zone of Treviso near the eastern border of the Veneto. The Il Follo estate is based at Santo Stefano, one of three villages in the Cartizze Superiore cru of Valdobbiadene. The 12,500 acre Prosecco Conegliano-Valdoibbadene D.O.C.G. received its classification in 2009. Conegliano-Valdobbiadene in turn lies within the Prosecco D.O.C zone that extends over the Veneto and Friuli-Venezia-Giulia, of which the most noted province is Treviso. Il Follo’s own vineyard production is supplemented by purchased grapes from throughout Conegliano-Valdobbiadene and Treviso.
Vittorio Follador and his son, Luca, share management of the estate. Vittorio carries forward the role of his own father, Attilo, in viticulture and grower relationships. Luca acts as with the technical advice of a nearby oenological laboratory, and also directs sales.
