In the Veneto region the word Ombra may mean both shade or
shadow and a glass of wine.
The usage derives from the ancient custom of meeting to drink a glass
of wine in the shade of the famous Campanile in Saint Mark's Square
Under the trademark Ombra and according to traditional methods,
Vallis Mareni produces two sparkling wines - Extra Dry and Brut -
of the Prosecco family originating from rugorously selected
grapes from Treviso hills and pressed under low pressure : the wine
thus obtained is then converted to sparkling wine in very modern cellars
by the Charmat method.
Innovation beside traditional methods are the guidelines of Vallis
