The week in pictures: Hong Kong

Sandro Bottega, founder of leading Prosecco producer Bottega, unveiled his passion project in Hong Kong called ‘Bottega Ancestral’. This is a sparkling wine produced mainly from Glera in the Veneto region at the foot of Alps. The wine did not go through disgorgement at the end of second fermentation, leaving the wine hazy with all the sediment and lees. This process, according to the vintner is similar to what he calls an “ancestral method”, hence the name of the project.
