The ‘prosecco’ that is made on the Conegliano and Valdobbiadene hills has already won an important share of the market for Italian sparkling wines.
This success is due to its delightful characteristics: it has a slightly aromatic bouquet, is never completely dry to the taste, and is excellent both as an aperitif and as an accompaniment to any course of a meal.
The prosecco grape (alongside other varieties such as verdino, pinot bianco, pinot grigio and chardonnay) is grown in an extensive hilly area in the Marca Trevigiana, whose heart lies in the two municipalities of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene, as well as in Follina, Vidor, Vittorio Veneto, Farra di Soligo, Pieve di Soligo, San Pietro di Feletto, Refrontolo and Susegana, to name only the most well-known, none of which is very far from the Holiday Farmhouse or from Sacile.
The prosecco grapes grown in Cartizze, an area of barely one hundred hectares in the hamlet of San Pietro di Barbozza in the municipality of Valdobbiadene, are used to make the famous sparkling wine of the same name, which is characterised by a greater intensity of aromas and flavour than the prosecco produced elsewhere has. Prosecco can be either a sparkling wine or a very light, delicate still wine.
