Prosecco is a late-ripening varietal grown in the hills of Treviso in the region of Veneto (near Venice) and is used to make the region’s popular sparkling wine. The municipality of Valdobbiadene is the prime area of real estate to grow and make the best Prosecco. The hills are very steep with a southern exposure; the vineyards see adequate sun, are well-drained and well-ventilated by the gentle breeze from the Adriatic Sea. It is here that Cantina Produttori di Valdobbiadene, or Val d’Oca, the largest co-operative throughout the hills of Valdobbiadene, is able to make world-class sparkling wines from the best selection of Prosecco from the region. The wine is made in the Charmat method in stateof- the-art stainless steel tanks to capture the vibrant fruit flavor and overall prized characteristics of Prosecco.
