A bit of history…

“Viticulture has been widespread in Conegliano Valdobbiadene since ancient times. A funerary stele recalls the words of a Roman centurion, citing the vendemmiales, celebrations on the occasion of the harvest.

In 1574 when Henry III, King of Poland, went to Paris to be crowned King of France, the Conegliano community made the white wine of the hills flow for a whole day from the fountain of Neptune.

In 1876 the Conegliano Wine School was founded, the first of its kind in Italy.

The 1930s saw the boundaries of the Prosecco production area for the first time. They correspond to the current boundaries of the Conegliano Valdobbiadene DOCG.

In 1969 comes the recognition of Denomination of Controlled Origin for Prosecco produced in the 15 municipalities between Conegliano Valdobbiadene.

In 2009 Conegliano Valdobbiadene becomes the 44th DOCG of Italy “
