Prosecco

 

Prosecco is one of the most famous Italian semi-sparkling and sparkling wines.

The name refers to an area in the Provinces of Padua, Treviso, Vicenza and Venice in the Veneto and in the Region of Friuli, in which the grapes are grown for Prosecco D.O.C.; the grape variety used to make this wine is called Glera.

The highest-quality zone is that of Conegliano Valdobbiadene, where our Prosecco Valdobbiadene D.O.C.G. is produced. This wine is made entirely from Glera and in the sparkling version it always boasts the distinction “Superiore”.

The beauty of an area that is rich in forests and vineyards, its cultural and historical heritage and the heroic farming required to cultivate some terraced vineyards on the steepest slopes have justified the local producers’ request for the Prosecco D.O.C.G. region to be designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
