Springtime is magical season in the Prosecco Wine Region, north of Venice Italy,when the gentle sloping hills are surround by the colors, scents and flavours of the wine of the harvest. Prosecco is a variety of grape that produces a delicate sparkling wine with an intense, flowering aroma cultivated exclusively in the north-east of the Veneto Region, north of Treviso and on the left side of Piave River.
The towns of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene comprise the classic growing area and within the two small cities, there is the oldest Italian wine road “ La Strada del Prosecco”.
This scenic route runs from Conegliano Castle for 50 Km., meandering through enchanting small villages and hilltop hamlets such as S. Pietro di Feleto, Refrontolo, Soligo, Colle S. Martino and finishing in Valdobbiadene. Amongst the beautiful array of vineyards there are also artistic and architectural treasures to be discovered, such as aristocratic mansions and ancient monuments, parish churches and mills.
