Rows of hills run parallel from east to west in the pre-Alps in the northern province of Treviso. This is Conegliano Valdobbiadene DOCG territory, comprising 15 municipalities and covering 20,000 hectares at an altitude of 100 to 500 metres asl, where vines are grown on the sunny side of the hills and vast woodlands cover the northern slopes.
This zone has seen widespread cultivation of vines since ancient times and it has been the ideal environment for the Glera varietal for more than three centuries. Thanks to a great variety of soils, exposure, gradients and altitudes in each micro-zone, all the wines produced here develop different organoleptic nuances.
The growers follow the strict vine-growing protocol of the Conegliano Valdobbiadene Consortium, a virtuous system of integrated pest control for the vine using appropriate agronomic practices and compatible products for increasingly more environmental sustainability.
This is a cultural landscape in the true sense of the word, such a unique scenario created by the vine growers that le Colline del Prosecco di Conegliano e Valdobbiadene are now an UNESCO World Heritage Site (7 July 2019)
