Venice - Conegliano, Valdobbiadene - Cortina
“Wine is one the most civilised things
in the world”
A territory steeped in the echoes of an ancient culture and a modern passion.
In eastern Veneto, and more precisely on the hills of Marca Trevigiana, comes one of the greatest expressions of civilised wine production in Italy and the world: the Prosecco.
“The most suitable wine for medicinal use,” said Livia Drusilla, wife of Emperor Augustus, referring to Vino Pucino, the ancient ancestor of Prosecco.
In 1750, thanks to the Serenissima Republic of Venice, the current Prosecco grape variety found its natural home among the sinuous hills of the Marca Trevigiana, flourishing in the areas between Conegliano and Valdobbiadene.
Cradled by the loving hills of Treviso in the area between Venice and Cortina, the estate that today goes by the name of Vignarosa, due to the colour of its buildings, dates back to the 18th century, as revealed by the maps of the Napoleonic Land Registers of 1813.
This period marked an important turning point for the birth of modern science and the culture of wine.
This spirit of transformation, of modernity and awareness of its history gives life to that exclusive relationship of understanding between man and creation, where the love for nature and gratitude for its fruits become one:
“Love and Gratitude”
