Lock, stock and wine barrel: Valdo Brut

Adriaan Roets

With grapes harvested from a prestigious wine area of Italy, Valdo’s Rosé Floral Brut is a delightful aperitif.

The bursts of purple around Joburg and Pretoria are a reminder of the power of flora. Mother nature provides some of life’s most sweeping spectacles, be it a sunset or flowers in full bloom.

It’s no surprise then that floral essence has been part of food and drink for decades. Whether it’s the rose flavours of Turkish delight, the sweet touches of elderberry in an elderflower cordial or Valdo’s Rosé Floral Brut.

This young, rosé-styled prosecco with an affirmative sweet aftertaste is a celebration of floral balance. Made from 30% Glera and 70% Nerello grapes, this rosé is prosecco with a twist.

It’s not really a surprise – with an eye-catching bottle designed with Milan Fashion Week in mind – this is a standout bottle of prosecco that’s fresh and lingering. With grapes harvested from a prestigious wine area of Italy, Valdo’s Rosé Floral Brut is a delightful aperitif or paired with lighter meals (think summer salads).

But what it really does is give people with a taste for sweet sparkling wines a way to explore proseccos, which are often considered too dry. Since entertaining is moving outside, Valdo’s range is one that easily fits into various entertainment scenarios. From brunch to after-work drinks in the garden, Valdo is an exceptional lifestyle range.

Starting with their Prosecco DOC Extra Dry – a classic prosecco that honours this Italian favourite – you can move on to their delectably dry Prosecco DOCG Brut.

If you like a balance of oak, try Valdo Prosecco Fondatore Brut. Or opt for Valdo Prosecco Cartizze Dry. The range is completed by Valdo’s Rosé Floral Brut and Valdo 90, an ultra-premium prosecco.
