Conegliano e Valdobbiadene
In the northern area of joyous and loving Marca Trevigiana, just few km away from Venice and Treviso and from Dolomites too, everything scents of wine and heartily flavours.
The century old oenological traditions have deeply marked the landscape and the spirit of people living in these wonderful and sunny hills: this is the hearth of Prosecco Doc Valdobbiadene and Conegliano cultivation.
Conegliano is the starting point of the Italy’s oldest wine road, Prosecco and Colli di Conegliano Wine Road, wich gives the visitors the possibility to discover historical and artistic sights of the District of Prosecco.
This small town is also well known for the historical “Ceretti” Oenological Insitute, the first one in Italy founded in 1876 by Mr.Antonio Carpenè, in which you can have a look to a frescoed wine shoop of 19th century, Bottega del Vino”.
In Contrada Grande you admire the facades of noble palaces, the splendid frescos on the facade of the cathedral and the castle in the background, from the top you can admire a lovely view of the surrounding hills, dotted with vineyards and little patches of woods.
Valdobbiadene, one of the town of Prosecco Route, is located in a green valley at the foot of the Pre-Alpes foothills and overlooking the Piave riverbed: from here travelling to Cartizze cru area you can discover the most beautiful views of the vineyards.
A gentle landscape composed of grapes and huts, farming towns and historical small villages, age-old parish churches and castles, a land that humans have shaped over the centuries, making it one of the prettiest corners of Italy.
In the city centre there is a large square surrounded by Neoclassical buildings including the Duomo, Municipality and majestic 18th century campanile and today it is the capital of Italian spumante and hosts the annual Forum dello Spumante in the splendid Villa dei Cedri.
