production area

Conegliano Valdobbiadene DOCG

We are in Veneto, in the North East of Italy, in a hilly territory in the province of Treviso, 50 km from Venice and 100 km from the Dolomites. The viticulture here has very ancient origins and the borders of the historical production area have remained largely unchanged since the 1930s.
The production area includes 15 districts, two of which provide the name to the Denomination: Conegliano and Valdobbiadene. The grapes of the wine known and loved all over the world as the Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore are produced here .

The history of the Prosecco

A long story…

VI Century
San Venanzio Fortunato
Bishop of Poitiers (530-607) describes Valdobbiadene as his homeland. “Quo Vineta Vernatur, Sub Monte Jugo Calvo, Quo Viror Umbrosus Tegit Sicca Metalla” (place where the vine germinates under the high mountain, in which the lush green protects the rougher areas.
XII Century
The Sunday Jesus
The fresco painted in the external front of the Pieve of S. Pietro di Feletto illustrates the “Cristo della Domenica” (Sunday Jesus). Whoever works on Sunday makes the Christ who bleeds suffer, surrounded by work tools. Thanks to these we understand what were the typical jobs on the hills at the time, and it seems that the viticulture was already part of the everyday life.

The historical hill

Acerle’s Cartizze

The Cartizze is a small area within the denomination of only 108 hectares considered the top quality of Conegliano Valdobbiadene. The area, also kown as Pentagono d’oro (gold Pentagon), includes steep vineyards in the hills of San Pietro di Barbozza, Santo Stefano and Saccol, in the municipality of Valdobbiadene.
The large rocks that surface in the vineyard of Cartizze di A C E R L E are rich in fossils and remind us that this land, which now dominates with grandeur all the hills that surround it, has a very ancient origin that goes back to the raising of the seabed and lake. The perfect sun exposure, the constant ventilation and the soils formed by moraines, sandstones and clays give this wine unique characteristics.

“If I were to describe the hill of Cartizze
I would compare it to a picture: it can be pleasant,
it can be surprising or enchanting but only those who are willing to listen
can take its essence to the end”
