Prosecco is one of the most famous Italian semi-sparkling and sparkling wines, and is increasingly appreciated worldwide. Its name is solidly rooted in the territory comprised between the Venetian provinces of Padua, Belluno, Treviso, Vicenza and Venice and the region of Friuli. This is the territory where the grapes designated to the Prosecco DOC are cultivated. This vine is called Glera.

Conegliano Valdobbiadene is the most valuable area for the production of Prosecco Valdobbiadene in its extra dry and brut versions. In the sparkling wine version it bears the “Superiore” designation.
The beauty of this territory, rich in woods and vineyards, its cultural and historical heritage, together with the “heroic” farming of some terraced vineyards on the steeper slopes, have justified the request forwarded to the UNESCO to recognize the Prosecco DOCG area as a World Heritage Site.
