THE CONEGLIANO VALDOBBIADENE DOCG ZONE
Conegliano Valdobbiadene, which received DOCG status in 2009, is at the pinnacle of quality of Prosecco, a wine which is produced exclusively in the North East of Italy in the regions of Veneto and Friuli Venezia Giulia. The home of Conegliano Valdobbiadene DOCG lies in the hilly area of the province of Treviso between the cities of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene. The area lies between the Dolomite mountains and the Adriatic sea, a combination which is extremely beneficial to the climate. The land here is beautiful yet very difficult to cultivate and wine growers have had to win it over inch by inch, working their beloved vines by hand.
Set against the majestic backdrop of Cortina and the Dolomites to the north and Venice, the most beautiful city in the world, to the south, the Conegliano Valdobbiadene DOCG hills are unique and beautiful in their own right. This land is by turns rugged and idyllic offering visitors enchanting views and delightful landscapes. The small towns and villages are home to fabulous works of art and visitors are treated to an irresistible selection wonderful local dishes as well as to Prosecco Superiore. The production area stretches across 15 towns and covers an area of 20,000 hectares. The vines are grown only on the sunny south-facing sides of the hills at an altitude between 50 and 500 metres above sea level while the northern sides of the hills are, for the most part, densely wooded.
