You may have noticed the words Il Concerto on the front of your Mr and Mrs SYLTBAR bottles, and wondered what it means. The literal definition of this Italian phrase is The Concert. So, what does SYLTBAR Prosecco and Sparkling Rosé have to do with music? Let us share the history…
The History of the San Simone Winery
SYLTBAR wines are produced by the family-owned-and-operated San Simone Winery in Friuli, Italy. Four generations of the Brisotto family have spanned the life of this vineyard located at Rondover, between Prata and Porcia, in the most western part of Doc Friuli Grave and the heart of Doc Prosecco. It started with the current owners’ great-grandfather and founder, Gino Brisotto, and great-grandmother, Olga. Then, passed onto their grandparents, Antonio and Angela. Then, onto their parents, Gino and Liviana, and now siblings, Chiara, Anna and Antonio, manage the winery and all of its practices. Even their own children have an active role in the winery activities.
As you can see, San Simone is truly a family operation that believes in passion, love, and sustainability, as they have been able to sustain the company since 1915! Another concept that the family believes in, is tradition. There is a church located right on the vineyard grounds. Dating back to when the vineyard was first operating, there would be concerts held at the church after each service. Sparkling wines produced by the winery were always served to guests of these concerts. There were cheerful, momentous occasions where a glass of bubbly was always a delight to share with friends and family after church.
San Simone Tradition
To honor this tradition, the owners of San Simone continue to produce the exact same sparkling wines that were drunk by concert goers during this time period — and you guessed it, Mr and Mrs were part of that tradition! It’s no wonder that they enjoy music so much!
Mr and Mrs might not have had their names back then, and the SYLTBAR brand had not yet been born, but they were very much a part of il concerto tradition at San Simone Winery.
Go grab one of your bottles of Mr and Mrs right now and take a look at the label on the front. Do you see the beautiful half-circle shaped design above the words Il Concerto? That is the same design as the church window where these concerts were held.
