Veneto

Grapevines have been cultivated in Veneto since the 7th century B.C., perfected by the Romans and continued in the Middle Ages. With Venetian domination from 1405, viticulture almost completely covers the territory, and Veronese wines, thanks to the Adige River, reach Venice. What sets this region apart from many others is the continuous commercial success of its wine products. From the late 18th century, the region experienced a crisis. However, the following century saw a qualitative leap in Venetian wines, also driven by the establishment of the Società Enologica Veronese in 1872. The first edition of Vinitaly took place in 1967.

Veneto has a complex wine production chain. Important areas include the Colline del Garda Veronese and Valpolicella, with Bardolino Superiore DOCG and Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG. Worth noting is the interregional Lugana DOC, between the provinces of Verona and Mantua. In the volcanic hills between the provinces of Verona and Vicenza lies the area of Soave Superiore DOCG, Soave DOC, and Gambellara DOC. The Colli Berici DOC, south of Vicenza, is known for its reds based on international varieties and Tocai Rosso. The Breganze DOC area, north of Vicenza, is renowned for its reds and whites based on Vespaiola grapes. In the Paduan area, there are the Colli Euganei with the Moscato Fior d’Arancio DOCG, while to the south lies the Friularo di Bagnoli DOCG. In Treviso, we find the Prosecco DOCG and the Colli di Conegliano DOCG. At the borders with Friuli is the Lison DOCG.

The presence of mountain ranges, hills, and vast plains provides significant temperature variations, mitigated near Lake Garda and along the coast. Veneto is therefore rich in diverse wines, made with both native and international grape varieties that find a second home here.

Treviso

We are in the territory of Treviso, where Prosecco is the prince of wines. The predominant grape variety here is Glera, which can be present either in purity or together with other more or less known white grape varieties such as Verdiso, Bianchetta, Perera, Chardonnay, Pinot Bianco, and Pinot Grigio, as well as black grape varieties like Pinot Nero.

The Prosecco territories are mostly hilly, where working with machines is very difficult. Vineyards are cultivated and harvested almost entirely by hand. The hills originated millions of years ago from the uplift of the sea floor. Indeed, once the entire area was below sea level, marine currents brought numerous debris to these areas, which were deposited layer by layer. Therefore, marls, clays, sandstones, and muds.

Subsequently, these sea floors emerged, giving rise to the various reliefs that make up the territory. Part of the hills also underwent modeling by the Dolomitic glaciers that covered them: once retreated, they left numerous sediments. After a process lasting millions of years, we now find different compositions of the subsoil: above a rocky layer, there are various layers composed of clays, marls, muds, sand, limestone conglomerates, and sandstones.

In the territory of Treviso, the hills, originally sea floors uplifted millions of years ago, are now fertile ground for viticulture.
