A landscape of vines
As well cared for as elegant gardens, the lands where Valdobbiadene DOCG is grown sit between the river Piave and a stream called Soligo. The physical and chemical composition of the land is ideal and passes on to the grapes the typical fragrances of the area. The sparkling Prosecco wine produced is an example of this excellent grape variety at its best.
We are just 50km from Venice in the hilly area in the north of the Province of Treviso between the towns of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene. This area is equidistant from the Dolomite mountains and the Adriatic sea, a combination which has a uniquely positive influence on the climate.
The land is difficult to cultivate yet charming with its high vineyards on steep hillsides where it can be hard simply to stand up, never mind work. Here wine growers have won the hillside over centimetre by centimetre, creating a uniquely beautiful landscape that is now a candidate for becoming a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The production area includes fifteen small municipalities and covers about 20,000 hectares. Vines are grown only on the sunniest parts of the hills at an altitude between 50 and 500 metres above sea level, while the northern sides of the hills are mainly covered in woodland.
