Valdobbiadene

Overview

What is generally valid for the entire Prosecco Superiore DOCG production area, with regard to its picturesque landscapes and the infinite geometries of its vineyards, is even more valid for the immediate surroundings of Valdobbiadene. Here, the density of hectares cultivated with vines reaches its maximum, and the horizon follows the sinuous and suggestive line of the steep hilly reliefs and pointed bell towers that indicate the presence of ancient villages.

A specific cultivated area of about 100 hectares, around San Pietro di Barbozza and San Stefano, small villages in the municipality of Valdobbiadene, stands out from the others for the quality of the Prosecco produced. It is called Cartizze DOCG and is famous the world over for its sparkling wine, obtained from the local Glera vine, which, thanks to the favourable combination of sun, winds and clayey soil of these lands, produces aromas and flavours of great freshness.

In Valdobbiadene, even in the historic centre, wine is key: the lush gardens and the sumptuous Art Nouveau salons of the Villa dei Cedri host some oenology exhibitions, dedicated to sparkling wine. For some Venetian art, you should actually head to the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta. The neoclassical architecture of the exterior does not readily suggest that, inside, some highly valuable Renaissance paintings are kept, made by artists of the Venetian school, such as Francesco Beccaruzzi, Paris Bordon, and Palma il Giovane.
