La Marca sparkling wine from the Veneto.... now at all major retail stores
Although La Marca is fifty years old this year, it has only really exploded onto the American market in only the last several years it appears. It has an apple taste, goes down easy, and is available in various size bottles. La Marca USA is located in Hayward, California.
Prosecco Fresh with La Marca: Open that bottle and appreciate the finer points of Prosecco --the wine and the region-- as La Marca winemaker Fabrizio Gatto talks bubbles with Wine Spectator's Gloria Maroti Frazee.
La Marca came into being in 1968 from the intuition of a noteworthy group of winegrowers who felt the need to introduce the quality of their local wines to the world. They came together to pool their energies and experience to protect and represent their wines with greater strength.
It was of the utmost importance to create a technical and commercial organization able to support the winegrowers in growing grapes and serve as a commercial platform to promote awareness of the area’s quality wines. The company continued to grow year after year working with high levels of professionalism on the quality, the image and typical characteristics of the territory.
La Marca is today a wine producing company representing the products of 9 cooperative wineries in the Province of Treviso with over 5000 winegrowers on vineyards extending over approximately 10.000 hectares. The majority of these lands is cultivated with Glera, named after the historic variety from which Prosecco is obtained.
The company is named for its place of origin, La Marca Trevigiana (March of Treviso), located in the heart of the Province of Treviso, between the plains and hills of the Conegliano-Valdobbiadene Doc and DOCG areas (Controlled Designation of Origin and Controlled and Guaranteed Designation of Origin), where its grapes are grown.
Know-how handed down through the years, experience and winegrowing professionalism, sectorial expertise and dynamic commercial strategies are the keystones that make it one of the most representative and visible companies in the Prosecco world.
We are committed to uniting tradition with innovation, as well as native know-how with advanced technology. In addition to working together for a sustainable viticulture that thinks about protecting future generations, we also believe in respecting natural resources which ensure characteristic wines that are strongly rooted in the territory.
La Marca markets white and red wines, Prosecco DOC, Prosecco Treviso and Prosecco Conegliano Valdobbiandene DOCG, under the brand-names of La Marca, Millage, Foscaro, San Nicola and Torri Della Marca.
