Giuliano, Labano and Guglielmo, affectionately nicknamed Gemin, inherited their passion and love for vineyards from their father Guglielmo Bortolomiol, who was known as Gelmo In 1949 they founded the “Fratelli Bortolomiol” (“Bortolomiol Brothers”) winery together. As they embarked on this new sparkling wine venture in Valdobbiadene, they plotted a path in pursuit of excellence in wine growing and making
Spumanti Gemin now has two separate facilities, each with its own story behind it. The first is our main winery, which was built in 1978. It’s just a short distance from the second, which was built in 1985 and is used to house the grapes after they’re harvested.
Our philosophy is based on Valdobbiadene DOCG production. Wines of this kind are made exclusively with grapes from a clearly defined part of the Valdobbiadene and Conegliano area, which are all harvested by hand.
Found in the Veneto region of Italy, the Conegliano-Valdobbiadene area is famous for the Prosecco Superiore DOCG made there. Thanks to its distinctive, unique hilly landscape, it boasts ideal characteristics for wine growing.

"Passion passed down through the generations: the Gemin family’s legacy in the heart of the Valdobbiadene DOCG Prosecco Superiore zone"
Parents are finding it increasingly hard to pass on their passion for their work to their children, but the Gemin family have kept their traditions alive for generations. Showing great determination, Paola and Alvio managed to get their three children on board. The young scions are now looking confidently to the future and working side by side with Paola in tireless pursuit of innovation in the business.
Tradition and innovation
The heart of the Spumanti Gemin production process lies in our pressing cellar, which stands proudly among our family vineyards.
It’s where we place the grapes picked during the harvest, before fermenting them in tanks in the same building. Our cutting-edge winery is capable of housing 80% of the grapes needed to make our wines. The goal for our 2024 harvest is to take the capacity to 100%.
Founded in 1985, the Gemin winery embodies a rich wine-making heritage while also serving as a symbol of innovation and technological progress.
The facility presents a perfect blend of the past and present.
