Veneto, in the north-eastern part of Italy, is a wonderful region famous also for wines: Amarone, Valpolicella, Bardolino, Recioto, Soave, Raboso. And Prosecco, of course, whose hills have just become UNESCO Human Heritage Site.
We just want to introduce you to it, dear friends, a real champion among the regional wine productions.
Prosecco is the most exported italian white wine around the world; it has been beated French Champagne exportations for bottled sold since 2014. It’s incredible!
Prosecco features are straw-yellow colour and a fresh taste with apples, almonds and flowers flavours.
It’s produced in a territory called Marca Trevigiana, inside Treviso province, between the cities of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene.
It’s wine-made in purity and it can be slow or sparkling and double sparkling (spumante). Its golden bunch of grape is spectacular: big and long.
Prosecco is a white wine with D.O.C and D.O.C.G, the most important European certificates of quality and originality and it’s perfect as aperitif and with shellfish, white meats, soft risotto and also with cakes and biscuits in its extra dry version.
Prosecco territory is a fabulous land, a chain of hills covered by vineyards; woods, small lakes, towns and villages with old churches and mansions, ancient architectures, original and excellent food like mushrooms, honey, chestnuts, fruits and liquors.
We can visit lovable villages like Combai, Guia and Guietta, Saccol, San Pietro in Cartizze, Follina, Cison di Valmarino and we can discover many important wineries. There is also a big and elegant castle along the Prosecco Way, called Castel Brando. It was built during the Middle Age on nine levels of floors and it has 250 rooms including the one which hosted Giacomo Casanova.
The Prosecco Land is also a territory of sports and outdoor life, because the Prealpi Mountains run behind the wineyards hills and offer trekking, mountain bike, Nordic-walking and horse-riding trails.
These are the wineries tryed for you; many of them also offer restaurants, tasting and bedrooms
