IL TERROIR,
the Conegliano and Valdobbiadene hills

The hills lying between Conegliano Veneto and Valdobbiadene in the province of Treviso provide the ideal terrain for Glera vines and form one of the most successful sparkling wine making districts in Italy.
One of the characteristics of this terroir is the number of variations it produces in the 18 areas involved (known as “Rive”), each of which provides sparkling wine with a different bouquet of aromas.

The zone has been a DOCG since 2007, after a 10-year survey which highlighted the importance of the link between territories and their indigenous varieties and clearly proved that the terroir produces significant differences in terms of grape quality and quantity. The soil is a mix of marl, clay and limestone, marine and stone and raw clay and these are the features that give Prosecco its distinctive fresh peachy hints, although this wine often has scents of citrus fruit, apples, pears, bread crusts and almonds or hazelnuts.
