Rococo sparkling wines are generous European style sparkling wine with similar curves and detail. The packaging also reflects the Rococo style.

Expert Reviews

"Produced from 100% Chardonnay, the NV Rococo Blanc De Blanc has a moderate intensity of peach blossom, lemon curd and jasmine aromas with a whiff of mandarin peel. Light to medium bodied, dry and crisp with a touch of sweetness to balance (10.6 grams / liter of residual sugar), it has a good amount of medium sized bubbles and a medium-long, straightforward finish."

Rating 86 - Lisa Perotti-Brown MW, eRobertParker (JUN/2011)

"This is the white version of the excellent rosé style. It's blanc de blancs which means it is from white grapes. Textured and soft, it has been deliberately made to a style for easy current drinking. Works for me."

Ray Jordan, The West Australian - Top 100 Wines (DEC/2011)

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

De Bortoli Wines is a third generation family wine company established by Vittorio and Giuseppina De Bortoli in 1928. The couple emigrated to Australia from Northern Italy, from mountain villages at the foothills of the Italian Alps, near the historic town of Asolo.

Their son, the energetic and dynamic Deen De Bortoli, (b 1936 – d 2003) expanded and consolidated the business created by his parents. Deen's children established De Bortoli's reputation for premium wine including icon dessert wine Noble One and the Yarra Valley wines.

Italian family values passed down from Vittorio remain core values, there is a culture of hard work, generosity of spirit and of sharing good food, good wine and good times with family and friends.
