Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2019, it is the epicenter of the wine-growing landscape of the Prosecco production area, in particular Prosecco Superiore DOCG and Cartizze, a sparkling wine named after the hill of the same name located in the municipality of Valdobbiadene.
The Prosecco Route, inaugurated in 1966, is among the oldest Italian wine routes. A route with a strong focus on food and wine that stretches for 90 km through the splendid hills of Conegliano Valdobbiadene.
Considered the cradle of Prosecco, Conegliano Valdobbiadene extends in the prealpine territory of Treviso east of the Piave river for about 40 km. A natural amphitheater of steep hills, softened by the embroidery of uninterrupted vineyards and, a little further on, to the north, the imposing spectacle of the Dolomites.
Valdobbiadene is a lovely town that offers cultural, historical and artistic attractions both linked and unlinked to the history and production of Prosecco Superiore. A land with a flourishing past which left the most evident signs in the Cathedral of the Assumption Santa Maria Assunta and in the splendid Villa dei Cedri, an Art Nouveau building which hosts many events dedicated to wine.
Speaking of food and wine culture, in addition to Prosecco, it is worth mentioning other typical products such as Monte Cesen cheese grappa and Sopressa Trevigiana.
Conegliano is a small, industrious town with a wealth of cultural activities, offering many events related to the world of gastronomy and wine. Particularly in August, in the setting of the medieval castle, the Calici di Stelle (Goblets of Stars) takes place, an occasion for celebrating and tasting local specialities.
The Prosecco Superiore Hills, world-famous for their beauty and the food and wine tours they offer, became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2019.
