Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG denomination
Founded on a settlement dating back to the Bronze Age, it was appreciated by the Roman Empire for its “Pucino” white wine that originated from its hills and was produced in a number of different varieties of white grapes fermented on their skins. After two centuries of Lombard rule, in which the town’s topography was positively affected, the domain of “Da Farra” was founded. Consequently, with the dissolution of the Carolingian Empire in 680 AD, a series of fortresses and castles that still adorn the hilly landscape of the country were constructed. Having established agriculture and textile production, these lands blossomed in the Pax Venetian and Serenissima Republic periods. With the Renaissance came the laying of the foundations for the establishment of the first Oenology School of Italy in Conegliano, inaugurated in 1876. At the end of the 1800s however, widespread poverty led to massive emigration much like that which subsequently followed the two world wars, in which the area was involved. Thanks to the ‘Italian miracle’ of the second half of the last century the whole area underwent a major boost that led to the progressive growth of the agricultural sector. Today, through the everyday work of men and women dedicated to manual viticulture, these hills produce Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG, the undisputed star of the new ‘Made in Italy’ quality lifestyle.
