VALDOBBIADENE AND CONEGLIANO: THE LANDS OF PROSECCO
They are located in the province of Treviso’s hilly belt, 50 km from Venice, between the towns of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene at an equal distance from both the Dolomites and the Adriatic Sea, a perfect combination that has a positive influence on the climate.
It is a territory that is difficult to cultivate, but that is fascinating at the same time, thanks to its unique and special vineyards situated on the steep hills where standing is particularly difficult. Here the wine growers have conquered the hills centimetre by centimetre, creating a rare scenery, where its beauty is a testament to the will to candidate this area as a Unesco World Heritage Site.
Valdobbiadene and Conegliano are the boundaries of the DOCG area which comprises 15 towns, from west to east. It is here, where culture, passion and love for the Glera grape, fruit from which Prosecco is produced, is found. The Glera vine is cultivated only on the sunny side of the hills, at an altitude of 50 to 500 metres above sea level, while the north side is mostly covered by woods, making the cultivation of the Glera grape and the production of the DOCG Prosecco unique to this area.
