The Sorelle firm was founded by Antonella and Ersiliana in the mid-eighties, inspired from their father Livio who had been involved in the wine business for over 30 years. Their father succeeded in transmitting them a great love that later became a genuine passion for the vineyards and for good quality wine. These are the two muses which fuel their inspiration in this wine growing and producing activity settled in Colbertaldo, a small farming center right in the heart of the Prosecco DOC area of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene.

It is not easy to find such enthusiastic women in the wine field. Thanks to their deep passion and sensitivity, they were able to combine the old family tradition together with the modern knowledge of growing and making wine. Together with Piero, Antonella's husband, Ersiliana and Antonella expanded the farm adding 13 hectares of vineyards in Rua di Feletto, in the pleasant hills above Conegliano. Their aim was to exploit their production from the new vineyards with a high density of vines per hectare. The main protagonist is the red wine Colli di Conegliano, a product on which the firm has set its hopes, and even if it is a new product it seems to be maintaining its promise.

Apart from Prosecco, in the new vineyards we can also find the white wine Colli di Coneglian La cantinao, on which much research is still being invested in order to reach the highest expression in quality. Prosecco is also grow in Colbertaldo in the old family vineyards. The second step in which the firm is involved is the realization, above the old buildings, of a modern, superbly structured winery of wood and steel. Modern technology controls the whole wine working process, respecting at the same time the old tradition.

Elisa, Ersiliana's daughter, has recently taken a degree in winemaking industry at the University of Padua and is now giving her important contribution in the family business. From the same University comes Federico Giotto, a promising wine expert who works with quite a lot of synergy at the Sorelle Bronca Firm in order to achieve better wines emphasizing the importance of the vineyards.

Vinous 2016
"Ersiliana and Antonella are the two sisters in question, and have quietly led this estate to the upper echelons of Prosecco quality. Their most famous wine is the Prosecco Particella 68, made from grapes culled in the eponymous site, a south facing, sun-drenched slope making for some rich, aromatically powerful Prosecco. The estate owns 24 hectares (59 acres) it farms organically and produces roughly 350,000 bottles annually."


From Gambero Rosso 2012
"Few wineries in the new Prosecco DOCG zone have chosen not to focus exclusively on Treviso’s world-renowned sparkler. Among them, Antonella and Ersiliana Bronca’s winery shines out. Here at Vidor, they have managed to produce a limited yet excellent range of still wines to accompany their spumantes. The vineyard, extensive enough to satisfy all the winery’s production requirements, is farmed organically. In recent years, we have seen an increasingly important contribution from Elisa, Ersilianna’ oenologist daughter, who works alongside Piero Balcon on the technical side of management."

    Bright straw. Aromas and flavors of botanical herbs, yellow apple and sweet spices. Fresh and juicy, with very good inner-mouth perfume and acid lift to the rich fruit flavors. Finishes long and bright.

    Stone dust gives way to potpourri, crushed apples and pears, as the NV Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore Brut blossoms in the glass. It sways from savory to sweet throughout its display of salty minerals, spices and orchard fruits, all carried upon a soothing wave of fine bubbles. A tart twang of citrus and savory herbs linger, as the mouth waters for another sip. This fully satisfying Prosecco punches well above its price point.

    Sorelle Bronca produces two equally remarkable single vineyard selections: the Particella 232 Extra Brut takes its structure and terse intensity from the clay soils and 300 meter elevation; Particella 68 Brut gets its complexity and finesse from a warmer location with calcareous soils. It's almost impossible to choose between them, but the latter takes it by a short head in this vintage. White blossom and wild herbs on the nose lead to an intense and juicy palate with a super-fine texture and a finish of crab apples and lime.

    The Sorelle Bronca 2021 Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore Rive di Colbertaldo Particella 68 Brut is laser focused and polished with tight beading and lots of little aromas that recall lemon zest, dried ginger, ash, wild sage and white rose. This sparkler is refreshing, informal and fun to drink. You get it all in Particella 68.
