The Prosecco region

Growing region of the famous sparkling wine

In the north of Treviso between the foothills and the flat plain of Veneto are the hilly vineyards of the Prosecco region. This is the home of the famous Prosecco sparkling wine, which should only be grown in the vineyards of this region. The secret of the wine is, similar to champagne, fermentation in the bottle. In addition to Prosecco, many other excellent wines can be tasted and bought in the region. A little tour along the Strada del Vino Prosecco will definitely be a culinary experience.

Prosecco Region Vineyards

Name and origin of Prosecco

Cone-shaped, lush growing hills, surrounded by the Alps in the north and the Piave plain in the south – that’s the Prosecco region in the north of Treviso. Although sparkling wines are produced everywhere in Italy, only products that were made from the typical Prosecco grape grown directly in the region are allowed to bear the name “Prosecco”. The precious “Cartizze” is a step up in terms of quality from Prosecco. This superlative Prosecco sparkling wine is considered to be the best in the Prosecco region and is grown exclusively in the vineyards between Valdobbiadene and Santo Stefano in quite small quantities.

Making Prosecco

Previously the farmers produced this low-alcohol sparkling wine in a champagne-like process solely by fermentation in the bottle. Today, the sparkling wine is placed in large tanks for fermentation – the residual sugar ferments in the bottle itself. To shorten the complicated manufacturing process, some vintners mix the Prosecco with carbonic acid, which reduces the quality of the sparkling wine but makes it much cheaper. You should therefore choose carefully where to buy your Prosecco and don’t just take the wine with the lowest price.

Wines of the Prosecco region

In addition to the various classic Prosecco sparkling wines, there are also other Prosecco products: Prosecco Spumante, which is a Prosecco sparkling wine, Gran Cuvée, a blend of different varieties of the same vintage, and Prosecco Tranquillo, a good white wine. Other local wines, such as Verdiso, Torchiato and Refrontolo, can be tasted and bought at the wine growers. Both wine connoisseurs as well as occasional wine drinkers can look forward to culinary delights.
