By now in its 18th edition, the four-month-long enogastronomic marathon Prosecco Spring decorates the gently-rolling hills of Treviso Province, where the valuable Conegliano Valdobbiadene DOCG is produced. This year the renowned enotouristic event (Primavera del Prosecco Superiore in Italian) includes 15 wine fairs in the places where spumante is produced.
Eleven municipalities will host this unique series of multiple itineraries that celebrate oenology, gastronomy, culture and even athletics from March to June. It is a prime opportunity for getting to know a great number of the area’s prized products, from Cartizze DOCG and Refrontolo Passito DOC, to Torchiato di Fregona DOC, white and red Colli di Conegliano DOCG, and Verdiso.
For those ready to enjoy the fresh spring air and the outdoors, perhaps even with brisk walks and fun, energetic activities: the 62 mi of Alpine Foothill bridle paths are perfect for mixing it all with the offerings of Primavera del Prosecco: think trekking, Nordic walking, and cycling expeditions. New additions to this year’s event is Le nostre vie or "Our Pathways," brief and accessible walking itineraries in exploration of some of the most evocative and least-discovered places of the Prosecco Route. Looking for historic, artistic and cultural activities? Primavera del Prosecco also provides occasions to visit the ancient Cistercian Abbey of Follina, the Romanesque Abbey Church of San Pietro in Feletto, the Molinetto della Croda (still in use today), the Didactic and Archaeological Park of Livelet and, thanks to a special collaboration, a visit to the fascinating Gipsoteca (Plaster Cast Gallery) of Antonio Canova in Possagno.
