About the Producer : Quartese was originally the 4th part of the tax which the landowner collected in produce from the workers; this 4th part of the harvest was handed over to the church and it was customarily collected from the best bunches of grapes. Ruggeri has given the name Quartese to its Prosecco Brut in memory of this ancient custom and to emphasise the care given to choosing the best grapes for its production.
