A extraordinary trip through the most ancient wine route in Italy: the Prosecco and Conegliano Valdobbiadene Hills Wine Road, located in an area full of charm, in an harmonious succession of rolling hills, beautiful vineyards and evocative places of a rich historical and artistic heritage. From Conegliano to Vittorio Veneto, from Vittorio Veneto to Valdobbiadene, from Valdobbiadene to Refrontolo, an immersion in a region of a great traditional wine vocation, whose protagonist is the famous wine Prosecco. Thanks to its versatility and fruity lightness, this distinguished wine has maintained its unique identity. It represents a perfect match to the genuine flavours and aromas of traditional cuisine of Treviso.
The program includes guided visits to the most famous and traditional wineries with tastings of wine and typical products and great purchase possibilities. Historical underground cellars, wine collections and stores – all of this at your disposal to enjoy the welcoming atmosphere of the area and its tradition of wine and good food.
For those wishing to know better this countryside, renowned not only for the production of Prosecco, we suggest you to visit its gorgeous cultural attractions – aristocratic villas, monuments, castles and abbeys such as the Castle of San Salvatore in Susegana, known as one of the oldest and valuable possessions of the Counts of Collalto; Cistercian Follina Abbey, sacred settlement and one of the most relevant examples of Romanesque architecture tending to late Gothic style; Castle Brandolini, an imposing structure born as a Roman fort and repeatedly enlarged over the centuries, now it houses a prestigious hotel with a series of small museums.
Conegliano, a small Renaissance town in the foothills, famous for its Master – magnificent painter Giovanni battista Cima, offers its gems to the passing visitors: Carrara walls, the Cathedral with the altarpiece Enthroned Madonna with Saints, the late 14th century Sala dei Battuti, via XX Settembre with its lovely procession of palaces and arcades. From the Medieval Castle you can enjoy breathtaking views over the surrounding hills.
Suggestive and fascinating is the visit to the city Vittorio Veneto, the symbol of the Italian victory in World War I. Founded by the fusion of the two autonomous centers of Ceneda and Serravalle, Vittorio Veneto is very rich of important buildings, works of art and museums, including the Cathedral, Loggia del Cenedese, Museo della Battaglia, 15th century Castello di San Martino, Sanctuary of S. Augusta.
Do not miss the most important wine festival “Primavera del Prosecco”, an event which offers 15 wine shows and wine themed initiatives held from March to June in hill towns located in this land, and many other important wine exhibitions dedicated to the wine Prosecco, this golden nectar that the Province of Treviso has elevated to world fame.
